MORTICIA – A1056512
Urgent 11-6-2015 Staten Island
***SAFE 11/06/15*** Ten weeks old and AVERAGE rated, MORTICIA has a case of conjunctivitis that makes a person’s heart hurt to look at her photos. She is just a darling baby girl who needs a round of antibiotics and tons of hugs, but is that what the ACC has lined up for her? OF COURSE NOT! The shelter plans to kill her instead, rather than give her some inexpensive meds. A FOSTER or ADOPTER can save her life, and that means YOU! Please do everything you possibly can to network this exceptional cutie right into someone’s loving arms, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Morticia came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Morticia was friendly and allowed handling. Reaction to assessor: Morticia is sitting in the middle of her cage and hisses at the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Morticia retreats to the back of her cage. Reaction to cage door opening: Morticia tenses at the sound of the door opening, remains still. Reaction to touch: Morticia head-butts the assessor and begins to purr, solicits petting and attention. Reaction to pick up: Morticia looks around nervously but remains still and purring while held. Placement Determination: Average Morticia appears fearful of the assessor at first, but enjoys petting and allows all handling. Morticia may need additional adjustment time in a new environment, but is exhibiting behavior suited to average cat parents. Please note that Morticia is being treated for an upper-respiratory infection at the time of the assessment and that this may affect the behaviors shown.
