WHISKEY – A1114528
Urgent - Manhattan
FOSTER CARE 6/19/17 NEW PHOTO & VIDEO! Whiskey is one gorgeous six month old kitten! While she’s been very friendly with her care takers at the shelter, she’s let us know that she really likes the cage she is in and does not want to move to our adoption ward. I’m sure someone out there can appreciate a confident woman who knows what she wants!
Poor Whiskey was brought in after she was chased and kicked by a man. Please show her that not all humans are bad by giving 6 month old Whiskey a tranquil, loving home!

Whiskey A1114528 was initially unsure and hesitant of interactions, but she appears to have warmed up to her caretakers throughout her stay. Although she appreciates petting and attention, she appears to become agitated when moved to our busy adoptions area. She displays distance-increasing behaviors and is unwilling to come out of her carrier. When placed back into a low-traffic area, she appears to adjust better to her surroundings and has otherwise been social and easy to handle. She remains appropriate for an adopter with an average amount of cat experience, but due to her reaction when placed in adoptions, we feel that quick placement into a stable home environment is in her best interest.
