HOLLEY – A1035809
*SAFE* 05/1815* -Holley was brought to the shelter as a stray a few days ago. His entropion is so severe that the vets are not able to visualize his eyeballs. He was friendly and cooperative during his exam, but did try to flee during his behavior exam. He also came in with ear mites and self-inflicted wounds behind his ears from scratching. Holley is in need of some TLC and possible surgery to repair his entropion. Please help Holley today!

Behavior: Experience No Children
Notes: Please note that Holley is being treated at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation. Holley was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to was seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer. Holley does not allow much petting or handling. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children.

When spoken quietly: continues to hide (3)
