Update rescued by Linda’s Feral Cat Assistance.
This beautiful cat sits peacefully in a cage, not realize she only has a few hours to live unless someone steps up to save her life.
Dubbed “G,” this girl is only around four months old. She came into Brooklyn Center as a stray on February 23 as an owner surrender stating she was a stray.
The shelter has evaluated her behavior as stated on this Facebook thread
“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: allows petting but remains nervous (3) Reaction to toy or novel object: shows no interest in playing (3) Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Notes: G 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 she 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 but after a steady low approach using soft voices she relaxed a little and I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. I was also able to pick her up and although she was tense no fractious behavior was display.”
It’s recommended she go to a home without children and where the cat parents are experienced.
