OSCAR – A1041211
Oscar A1041211 – 9 yr. neutered orange tabby, stray
oscar is an orange and white male tabby, approximately 5 years old, who came into ACC after being found in the client’s yard. Oscar doesn’t appear to have any health issues. He attempted to flee so counselors were unable to handle; however, once in the cage Oscar head butted the cage and solicited attention for petting.
Notes: Oscar 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 he was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Oscar is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner.
