ABBY – A1079625
Gone - 7-7-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 07/07/16*** Ooooo la la! Abby is a senior doll who was adopted 12 years ago from a Paris pet store. She is being given up by the only family she has ever known due to house soiling..and..oh..a NEW BABY. Abby used to be the baby and now she has been thrown over like a used doll that no one has any use for. Abby has lived with a young child and as long as the child treats her in a respectful manner she is perfectly fine! Abby has had her life turned completely upside down by being thrown in a shelter after she has known nothing but a home and a family. She shouldn’t have her life ended simply because of one traumatic decision by her family and one test given at a time when she is not herself. Please share Abby for a foster/adopter and a New Hope Partner.

07/01/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/01/16 22:31 BASIC INFO Abby is a 12 year old spayed DSH cat. Her owner got her from a pet store in Paris 12 years ago. Her family surrendered her due to litterbox accidents and a new baby. Abby was born with a short tail. She broke a tooth when she was younger. SOCIALIZATION Abby is shy with new strangers for a few minutes. She lived with a child who’s currently 3 years old. The child was rough with her when she was younger and Abby would swat at her. Now, the child is more relaxed and gentle so Abby is more tolerant. Abby hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Abby meows in the car. She doesn’t mind when someone picks her up, holds her, puts her in a carrier, or wakes her up. She struggles during baths and nail trims. Since the 3 year old in her home was born, Abby has been urinating on the child’s bed. She was doing this as often as daily in the past. Her family began keeping the door to the child’s room shut and this would only happen when it was left open, monthly or less frequently. Abby hadn’t had any accidents before the child was born. She doesn’t have any accidents when the child is out of town or when she’s staying in someone else’s home. She did have a few accidents on the couch recently. Her family is expecting another baby soon. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Abby’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, quiet, and low energy. She follows them and sits next to them. She plays with wand toys. She lived inside and slept on a cat bed. She ate dry Wellness food. She used a hooded litterbox with a hole in the top and clumping or clay litter. She scratched a horizontal cardboard scratcher in addition to the couch. INTAKE Abby hissed while I scanned her in the carrier (+). She allowed her owner to pick her up, pet her, collar her, and position her for pictures. She hissed as he tried to put her in a carrier. She struggled and he set her down on the counter. She hissed repeatedly and growled some as I used a towel to encourage her into a welcome den. She didn’t swat.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Abby’s previous owner reports she is shy with new strangers for a few minutes. The child in the home was rough with her when she was younger, so Abby would swat at the child. However, the child is more relaxed and gentle, so Abby is more tolerant now. She doesn’t mind when someone picks her up, holds her, or places her into a carrier. She was described as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and quiet with a low energy level. She usually follows the owner around at home and sits next to them. Reaction to assessor: Abby was inside a hidey den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Abby becomes stiff and alert, and looks outside a peep hole with dilated eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Abby remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Abby hisses and growls loudly with an extended hand. She does not allow touch; she hisses and strikes near the opening. Abby’s owners reports she has been urinating on the child’s bed since the child was born. This was a daily occurrence, but the family started to keep the child’s room shut. Since then, Abby would only do so when the door was left open and did so less frequently. She never had litter box accidents prior to the child and doesn’t have accidents when the child is out of town, or when she is left in someone else’s home. She did have a few accidents on the couch recently, however. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Abby be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litter box(es). Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Abby is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, 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.
