MARGARITA – A1059166
Urgent 12-5-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 12/05/15*** MARGARITA is a beautiful, 3 year old whose only problem is that she’s found herself at a HIGH KILL SHELTER and needs someone to get her out! Thrown in the shelter with so many other cats and stuffed in a tiny cage, this girl is bound to have fear issues. It’s for just that reason that’s she’s rated EXPNOCHILD. But once in a new home, she can get used to her new surroundings on her terms, and she should be just fine. PLEASE offer to FOSTER or ADOPT MARGARITA! It’s high time a MARGARITA should make you happy, and without the buzz!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Margarita behavior was monitored by the enichment faciliator prior to her evaluation. They noticed Margarita is fearful and tense in the care center. Reaction to assessor: Margarita does not come to front but remains neutral When spoken quietly: Margarita does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: Margarita remains motionless Reaction to touch: Margarita flinches when touched and body stays very tense. Try picking cat up: Did not attempt due to Margarita looking like she was about to flee Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Margarita 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 fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer. I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. Although she was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children.
