Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Becky. My animal id is #88078. I am a desexed female gray tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 2/7/2020.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Becky is a shy 3-year-old girl that came to ACC as a stray, during her stay with us, she has displayed distant behavior by staying in the back fo the kennel. we have seen that with time, she is able to feel more confident and comes to the front of the kennel and takes treats from staff member's hands, but remains fearful overall. We believe that Becky would thrive in a more stable environment, where can stretch her paws and be free. Becky was diagnosed by our vet team with FIV and they also found that she is overweight.

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Becky is a timid tabby girl who is still adjusting to our care center and who may need some time to warm up to her new home. She was lying in the front of her kennel as the assessor approached, ears forward and face neutral. Becky made eye contact when spoken to, then sat upright and curled her feet around her body as the kennel door opened. Becky tolerated petting along her head and body while tilting her ears and licking her lips, then turning away from the assessor and retreating through her portal with a low body and tail. Pick up was not attempted at this time to reduce stress. Becky tolerates attention and petting but appears fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
