SAFE 10/14/16 Cream Lynx Point With Healing Wound – VENEZUELA – 1 Year Old Sweetie!
Venezuela A1092365 – 1 yr. female Lynx Point mix, stray
Venezuela was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Venezuela was lying down across the back of the kennel and was facing the wall.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Venezuela turns towards the assessor, slow blinks and stays at the back and doesn’t come forward.
Reaction to cage door opening: Venezuela remains neutral.
Reaction to touch: Venezuela seems unsure and lowers her head when the assessor extends his hand out. She allows petting along her body, closes her eyes and takes some time to warm up. Her body is a bit tense but she slowly leans in when rubbed on her cheeks and seems confident at the back of the kennel.
Reaction to being picked up: Venezuela was a bit tense when picked up but remains calm and allows all handling.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Venezuela 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.
Very tense, will sniff fingers, but doesn’t want any touching. Moves from litter box when no one is watching but will freeze if you pass when moving, mid stride, as she did when going to eat treats left in cage.
Scared, hiding in back of cage. Lets you touch with a slow, gentle approach. Has a wounded leg, which may be affeciting her behavior. Stunningly beautiful.
Check wound on right front leg.
O: QARH. Hiding in back of cage but allows handling.
INTEG: Right front leg – from medial humerus to anrbrachium – scar tissue proximally, healing wound distally which is dry and scabbed. Not painful or swollen. No skin lesions elsewhere.
A: Healing wound.
P: No treatment needed. Recheck in one week to ensure healing continues.
