GEM – A1123133
Safe - 9-2-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: All Sentient Beings Please honor your pledges: http://animalloversnetwork.org/
SAFE 9/2/17 When Gem first came to the Brooklyn Care Center she was hissy and avoided interaction, but she’s opened up so much since then! She comes forward with the cutest little mews and rubs against the cage, soliciting attention. She’ll even cry when you leave because she enjoys being petted so much!
Gem is definitely a shy kitten who appears to warm up with a little extra patience and plenty of tasty treats. A volunteer writes: Adorable little Gem is a little unsure of herself and needs a patient home where someone can help her confidence and personality blossom. She’s still a bit wary of humans and needs time to learn to trust people. The good news is, Gem is already figuring out that humans can be sources of two things she enjoys — delicious treats and fun toys.

Fearful, hissy little kitten. She shifts away and retreats into the litter box when I tried interacting with her. Nervous, but tolerates petting with a slow approach. She trembles when touched but eventually leans her head in for attention. Food motivated- enjoys party mix. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
