Hello, my name is Prarie. My animal id is #14869. I am a desexed male orange tabby cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 10 years old. – P
I came into the shelter as a stray on 28-Nov-2017.
Prarie is at risk for medical reasons. Prarie is a geriatric man with underlying chronic conditions. He has Grade II left hind lameness, and we recommend further analysis of this, as well as an abdominal ultrasound after placement. Behaviorally, we have no concerns about Prarie, and he has been assessed as being suitable for beginner cat homes.
