Brighton

Hello, my name is Brighton. My animal id is #73678. I am a female brown tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 6 months 3 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a aco impound on 8/23/2019.

Reserved

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

Brighton was placed at risk due to behavioral concerns; she is not thriving in the care center and is displaying fearful-distant behavior. He was diagnosed with URI, Otitis externa, Conjunctivitis and would benefit from placement as soon as possible. We are recommending placement on an adult only home with an experienced cat adopter.

Reaction to touch:: Brighton tolerates petting along her head and body with the assessor’s hand while flattening ears further and hissing. She flinches and backs away with continued petting while looking around the room and tucking tail beneath body.

ACTIVITY LEVEL:: Moderate

VOCAL:: Quiet

CHARACTER TYPE: : Timid,Skittish,Independent

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Bret has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him/her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experienced, adult only

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Bret tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
