Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Brooklyn. My animal id is #43843. I am a desexed female gray cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 9 months 4 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 10/7/2018.


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

Brooklyn is at risk for behavior, he remains fearful in the shelter environment and allows limited interactions. There are no medical concerns at this time.

Details on my behavior are...

Behavior Condition: 5. Red

KNOWN HISTORY:: Brooklyn was brought in as a stray, so we don't have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:: 10/9/18 Subjective: Alert and energetic in kennel

ENRICHMENT NOTES:: 10/10/18 Eval today 10/11/18 Curled up in den, out of sight. No response to door opening or being spoken to. Stayed huddled in place when given treats, occasionally turning head to look around. Stayed out of reach of pets, showed no interest in treats, even once left alone.

Cage Condition:: No change

Reaction to assessor:: Brooklyn remains crouched position, hiding in the cat den during the approach.

Reaction when softly spoken to:: Brooklyn becomes alert, eyes wide open, anxiously looking around.

Reaction to cage door opening:: Brooklyn remains stiff body in the den, peeking through the peek holes.

Reaction to touch:: Brooklyn shows no interest towards the interaction and slowly withdraws from hand. She moves further into the den, but accepts a brief touch on the head while she remains tense in place.


VOCAL:: Quiet

CHARACTER TYPE: : Skittish,Independent

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experienced, adult only

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Brooklyn 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
