RUSTY – A1064798
I am a neutered male, orange tabby Domestic Shorthair mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 2 years old.
I weigh 11 pounds.
I was found in NY 11233.
I have been at the shelter since Feb 09, 2016.
N; 2 YO; 11.2 LB
Very sweet and calm. Walks toward examiner, likes being handled. Purring.
Came in directly after a member of the public had him neutered at the ASPCA; due to a rip in the cord, abdominal incision was made for repair. Both surgery sites (abdomen and scrotum) are clean, dry and intact. E-collar will be kept on throughout healing period. No signs or expressions of pain during handling.
Flea dirt obs, treated with Activyl
Tested positive for FIV
Behavior – Beginner Home
Hesitant at the front. Slow movements. Allows petting. Comes forward slowly. Purrs, allows petting. Rubs up against hand.
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Bob and at the time he was licking his lips. Hesitant at first. Very sweet. Allows petting all over. Becomes more relaxed. Gets up and rubs against hand. Purrs lightly.
Reaction to assessor: Rusty comes to front and looks at you calm and relaxed
When spoken quietly: Rusty comes to front and looks at you calm and relaxed
Reaction to door cage opening: Rusty remains soft and relaxed
Reaction to touch: Rusty allows petting and attention
Try picking cat up: Rusty is tolerant of this type of handling.
Behavior Determination: Beginner
Rusty was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Rusty is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner.
