Hello, my name is Sha-Sha. My animal id is #16796. I am a desexed female orange tabby cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 11 years old. – P
I came into the shelter as a stray on 23-Dec-2017.
Zip Code: 10473
Sha-Sha is at risk for behavioral reasons. Sha-Sha is extremely nervous and timid in the shelter, and avoids interaction. Sha-Sha is a geriatric lady and has had a couple of episodes of vomitting the past couple of days, which we suspect may be indicative of pancreatitis, and for which she is currently receiving treatment.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 7.2 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 4. Orange
KNOWN HISTORY:: Sha-Sha was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:: 12/24 Subjective: Hissing, alert
Cage Condition:: No change
Reaction to assessor:: Sha-Sha remains hiding in the cat den during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:: Sha-Sha shows no interest and remains in place .
Reaction to cage door opening:: Sha-Sha slowly comes out from the cat den, alert with soft eyes, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:: Sha-Sha briefly allows the touch on the head, but becomes agitated and swats at the assessor’s hand followed by hissing.
ACTIVITY LEVEL:: Laid back
CHARACTER TYPE: : Curious,Independent
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experienced, adult only
Behavior Asilomar: TM – Treatable-Manageable
BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Sha-Sha may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
