Animal Profile


Luciana

Hello, my name is Luciana. My animal id is #26339. I am a female tri color cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 3 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 27-Apr-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person health - allergies.

Reserved

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

Luciana is at risk for behavior reasons. Luciana is very fearful and nervous in the care center, and seeks to hide when people approach, though she is making some progress towards being comfortable with the staff she sees on a regular basis. Medically, Luciana was treated for ear mites on arrival at the care center, and has a heart murmur, but appears to be an otherwise healthy cat. We suggest that Luciana would be best suited to a cat experienced home.
