SUMMER – A1087128
Safe - 10-4-2016 Brooklyn
SAFE 10/4/16 A volunteer writes: This graceful, longhaired beauty has the air of an old-timey movie star, cordial and friendly, but with a certain reserved dignity and grace. She mews for attention, but isn’t quite as ready to immediately leap into the arms of just any old person like some less discriminating cats. Sure, she has high standards and may take a while for her to decide you’re worth her time, but isn’t a lifetime with this sweet, gorgeous gal worth it?

Summer was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Summer was resting in her litter box at the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Summer becomes alert, rises up makes eye contact with the assessor.
Reaction to cage door opening: Summer cries out.
Reaction to touch: Summer is hesitant of contact and stays in her litter box where she’s more comfortable. She slowly gains confidence, leans in for rubs and allows petting all over her body. Her body is still a bit tense and she slowly comes to the front with her tail at body level and meows softly.
Reaction to being picked up: Luna is tense when held; lip licks then jumps away shortly after.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Summer may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
