Oscar was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Frightened, hissing. Exam and treatments performed through capture net.
Allowed limited exam, hissed a few times
Cage Condition: Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor: Oscar comes forward to greet the assessor then gently rubs his cheeks against the cage door.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Oscar is relaxed and reaches out towards the assessor with soft paws.
Reaction to cage door opening: Oscar remains calm.
Reaction to touch: Oscar leans in to sniff then gently rubs his cheeks against the assessor’s hand. He perks up when pet, his tail sways and he occasionally pauses and becomes focused when touched on his back. He seems to prefer being touched on his head, slowly rubbing up and guiding the assessor to where he wants to be pet. He’ll vocalize and nip when on his back for too long but he doesn’t display any further reaction.
Reaction to being picked up: Oscar was bit tense when picked up and allowed all handling.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
VOCAL: Somewhat chatty
CHARACTER TYPE: Calm
Experienced cat parent – Oscar may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.

A volunteer writes: Oscar is the Fred Astaire of the Brooklyn shelter! When I opened his kennel door, he thought he was going dancing! He started dancing around in a circle, pirouetting around and around and around. Oscar may be a big boy, but he’s light on his feet when he thinks you are going to sweep him up in your arms and dance your way to the stars. Okay Oscar, let’s get some big band tunes cued up on the turntable and put on our dancing shoes.
