SPAKEY – A1122465
Safe - 8-25-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhopeanimalrescue.org/
*** SAFE 08/25/17 *** SPAKEY is a senior fella who’s looking for a loving retirement home to spend the remainder of his golden years in! Though he wasn’t too happy during his initial exam (who really has time for that, after all!), he allowed some gentle head scratches and seemed to appreciate the attention, though he was definitely more focused on exploring the room. In the short amount of time he’s spent at the Brooklyn Care Center, he’s carefully groomed himself and calmly observed the goings-on of the room. This adorably vocal older kitty currently has a URI, dental disease, and conjunctivitis, and will need follow up medical care to help address his emaciation, diarrhea, and overall body condition.
12 year old Spakey lost his home when owner became ill. Please consider adopting and older boy today!

08/21/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Spakey was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on his behavior in his previous home. He was easy to handle during the intake process. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – Hissed and was striking in the cage EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Spakey was lying down by the front, meowing softly periodically. Reaction when softly spoken to: Spakey continues to meow, but leans forward to sniff around. Reaction to cage door opening: Spakey remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Spakey was hesitant of touch, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. He lowers his head to avoid petting, but allows gentle strokes along his back and lifts his rear. He doesn’t mind being pet on his body, but will avoid being pet on his head. Reaction to pick uo: Spakey grumbles and shifts away to avoid handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Talkative CHARACTER TYPE: Calm, Independent BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Please note that Spakey is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Spakey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may need time to warm up to his 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.
