ROBIN – A1103023
Safe - 2-19-2017 Staten Island
SAFE 2/19/17 A staff member writes: Robin is one of those kitties that proves age is just a number! Whenever she sees people, she comes right up to the front of the cage and starts rubbing against the front – showing you what to do, because she just wants to be petted. If you indulge her, she’ll start purring as loudly as she can to encourage you. She also loves her fish flake treats and will gobble them right up, no problem! If you’re looking for a Grade A snuggler, come meet Robin at SI ACC today~

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Robin was reported with good behavior at intake and in medical, but some staff have reported her hissing and exhibiting distance-increasing behaviors. It is unclear what triggers this behavior.

This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
