DRAKE – aka DRACULA – A1048892
Urgent 9-1-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Zani's Furry Friends Please honor your pledges: http://zanisfurryfriends.org
**SAFE 09/01/15** SECOND CHANCE FOR DRAKE!!DRAKE is a darling year-old baby girl who has an old injury to her front leg which may (or may not) require an amputation. Even if the ACC medical crew is correct in this assumption, DRAKE can still lead a full, satisfying life and smother her owner with unconditional love! If you are approved with a New Hope rescue, you can FOSTER little DRAKE and the rescue group will pick up the vet bills. Of course, she can also be adopted directly by someone who is willing and able to do right by her. Either way, DRAKE is a precious kitten who needs a foster/adoptive hero to save her life, tonight!

08/27/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – BEGINNER
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Dracula was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Dracula is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner. Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but looks at you, is calm, relaxed and friendly When spoken quietly: comes to the front of cage, soliciting, rubbing against front Reaction to door cage opening: remains soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: solicits petting and attention Try picking cat up: Dracula allows all handling Placement Determination: Beginner
