*** SAFE 09/23/17 *** PETUNIA is a 3 yr old who needs a home asap – appears stressed in the shelter.
My name is PETUNIA. My Animal ID # is A1125007.
I am a spayed female brn tabby and black domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old.
I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 09/09/2017 from NY 11224, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.
09/19/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Petunia A1125007 is at risk due to URI diagnosis and a NHO determination. She did not appear to be thriving during her stay and displayed extreme distance-increasing behavior when approached for interaction. She was recently diagnosed with a URI and she was reported to be soliciting attention by the front recently and allowed gentle cheek rubs. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior, but she is tolerant of gentle petting with a slow approach at this time.
