GEMINI – A1034287
GEMINI – A1034287
I am an unaltered female, gray tabby and white Domestic Shorthair mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 1 year old.
I weigh 8 pounds.
I was found in NY 11378.
I have been at the shelter since Apr 25, 2015.
Gemini has been seen outside for a little over a month. Finder has not interacted with Gemini. Gemini was found with 3 Kittens.
Behavior during intake
Gemini was brought in a cat trap was nervous pacing back and forth in the trap. Counselor did not handle.
BEHAVIOR: NEW HOPE ONLY
Notes: Gemini was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but remains neutral (2)
When spoken quietly: does not come to front but remains neutral (2)
Reaction to door cage opening: becomes stiff, alert (3)
Reaction to touch: growls, hisses, does not allows petting at all (5)
Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick the cat up, fractious behavior
Placement Dteremination: NewHope
Today facial wound is dry and slightly scabbed over, no discharge. Pt resting comfortably in cage, nursing kittens.
Technician notified me that pt has a laceration on her face, which was seen after vaccination (including rabies) was performed.
Due to temperament, visual exam only:
Laceration is 1-2 cm long x 0.5 cm wide, directly under the right eye. There is some blood on the wound.
Wound may have occurred during trapping or transfer from trap to cage, or before intake (i.e. bite or scratch from another animal). Bite or scratch significantly less likely due to the fact that pt does not show any other signs of recent altercation with other animals.
