Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Justice. My animal id is #77314. I am a desexed female gray tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 6 months 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 9/29/2019.


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

Justice is at risk for behavioral reasons. Justice has displayed distance increasing behaviors while at the care center and has remained fearful. Justice would be best suited for placement with a new hope partner that can provide a low stress environment. Medically, Justice seems healthy.

Barbra Music called attempting to take Justice off the at risk list but the site was giving her an issue so I took down her information and will email the correct people that can take her off the list. Sabrina

My medical notes are...

Potential challenges comments:: Justice has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with minimal 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 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 Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Justice is having a hard time acclimating to the care center. She seems curious of her surroundings and slowly comes forward when offered any kind of treats but retreats, hisses and escalates to striking if pushed past her threshold. Justice is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. She has tried to swat, scratch, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
