*** SAFE 10/17/17 *** 2 year old URIAH was returned to the shelter for landlord issues. He is definitely not happy about this and needs a new furever home this time.
Hello, my name is Uriah. My animal id is #7849. I am a desexed male silver tabby cat at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks i am about 2 years 2 weeks old. – P
I came into the shelter as a data import – incoming on 01-Oct-2017.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Behavior Determination: Adult Only
Details on my behavior are…
KNOWN HISTORY: Uriah was reported to be shy when meeting new people, but he will come around after adjusting to them. He doesn’t like guests petting him. He has only interacted with a cat for a short period of time and both cats displayed distance-increasing behaviors toward each other; hissing with hackles raised. He is described as being friendly with people he knows and can be playful at times, but also shy and independent. He has a medium activity level and likes to play with balls, wand toys, and chasing toys. He is litter box trained using an uncovered box and clumping litter. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – striking, growling, netted Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Uriah was lying down by the front, whining and grumbling upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Uriah looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes, but he continues to whine with his ears tilted. Reaction to cage door opening: Uriah focuses on the cage door. Reaction to touch: Uriah sniffs the assessor’s hand while squinting. He shifts away to avoid touch and lifts his paw up, ready to swipe. He grumbles and allows brief touch, but swipes gently and pats the assessor’s hand multiple times. He appears unsure and curious at the same time. When petting stops, he lies down with his legs stretched out, calm and relaxed. Reaction to being picked up: Did not attempt. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Curious Timid Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: None BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experienced, adult only Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable RECOMMENDATIONS: None BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Uriah tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He will need time to warm up to his new home and family. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
