JIGGLYPUFF – A1058420
Urgent 12-29-2015 Brooklyn
SAFE 12/29/15 – A staff member writes: Jigglypuff may give you the wrong impression of her at first, but she will soon have you right under her spell with her songs. She is a little shy and insecure, but warms up almost completely when you show her she doesn’t have anything to worry about. She will even knead gently and purr a little lullaby when held and petted at the same time. She is probably that kind of cat to climb on top of your lap and snuggle when you least expect it.

Reaction when softly spoken to: Jigglypuff looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Jigglypuff becomes startled and hisses.
Reaction to touch: Jigglypuff was a bit hesitant, but remains in place and allows petting. She starts to warm up, head-butts, and begins to purr.
Reaction to being picked up: Jigglypuff hisses again, but relaxes in the assessor’s arms.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Jigglypuff tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
Jigglypuff was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Please note that this cat is being treated or a wound so we may not be seeing any true behavior and behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves.
Reaction to assessor: Jigglypuff was hiding underneath the bogus paper with large, wide eyes.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Jigglypuff makes eye contact with the assessor and inches away slowly.
Reaction to cage door opening: Jigglypuff remains neutral.
Reaction to touch: Jigglypuff is tolerant of brief petting. She low growls and shifts away from contact.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Jigglypuff tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
12/2/15 Wednesday (Day 1)
Comes forward slowly. Sniffs hand and solicits attention. Didn’t flee. Curious. Enjoys treats. Gets antsy when held.
