Animal Profile


Moe

Hello, my name is Moe. My animal id is #42776. I am a male tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a aco impound on 28-Sep-2018.

Reserved

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

Moe tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home. Medically, Moe has a heart murmur but is otherwise healthy.

My medical notes are...

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Moe has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him 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.
