ROMULUS – A1073256
I am an unaltered female, black and white Domestic Shorthair mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 11 weeks old.
I weigh 2 pounds.
I was found in NY 11208.
I have been at the shelter since May 11, 2016.
microchip scan negative
approximately 10 weeks old
eyes are clear
mild dark debris AU; cleaned both ears
2.44 lbs; BCS: 3/5
has a good appetite; eating wet food well
nervous, allowed slow handling
Romulus was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Romulus was curled up in her litter box at the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Romulus lowers her head trying to avoid eye contact then hisses.
Reaction to cage door opening: Romulus remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Romulus hisses as you approach then slowly leans away from contact. She has a stiff body when pet and slowly turns head away facing the wall.
Reaction to being picked up: Romulus is very tense, struggles and leaps back into the kennel.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Romulus tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
Curled up in the back. Nervous. Keeps body low. Tolerates petting. Ears flatten. Stiff body when held.
