WEEZ – 17219
Safe - 1-9-2018 Brooklyn
SAFE 1/9/18 A volunteer writes: Weez is a very vocal gal; she likes to call out so people give her their utmost attention. When you go over to see her, she acts a little shy, then warms up with a little bit of love. Weez is a very attractive cat who would probably do best with experienced cat parents. Her slate hair is very soft and just made for petting.
**Poor Weez was dumped by her owner. She is already spayed and about 3 yrs old. Weez is hoping for a new home asap!

Reaction to being picked up:
Weez was very tense when picked up and quickly leaped back into the kennel.
Potential challenges comments:
Weez has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Weez 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.
