Safe - 3-7-2018 Brooklyn
SAFE 3/7/18 Quiet Young 1-Year Old Brown Tabby – Sensational SKEETER at BACC Needs Some Time To Warm Up & A Nice Quiet Home!
Skeeter 22000 – 1 yr. neutered brown tabby/white cat, stray:
Skeeter was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Quiet, but allows all handling with minimal restraint
Crouched in front of cubby, body pressed against cubby door. Makes eye contact when spoken to, ears flattening and face tense. Tolerates petting with the bear-claw while turning head to watch it pass along his back and shifting his weight. Ears flatten further as he licks his lips.
Uncomfortable and tense, needs time to adjust.
Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor:
Skeeter was relaxed and sitting up on top his perch. He makes eye contact with the assessor, but doesn’t come forward.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Skeeter’s ears tilt forward and he slow blinks when the assessor tries coaxing him forward.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Skeeter shifts away into his cubby.
Reaction to touch:
Skeeter slow blinks and sits still as the assessor extends his hand forward. He closes his eyes when pet and tilts his head slightly, allowing rubs on his cheeks.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Skeeter may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
