06/16/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/16/17 16:22 Amare A1115547 is a 1yr old female black DSH feline who was trapped at the finder’s job along with her sibling/father Ami A1115548. They aren’t interested in keeping them. Due to Amare being trapped the finder didn’t handle her/him. During intake Amare was transferred into a cat den to be able to give the finder their traps back. Amare allowed to be pet while she ate but then swatted gently at our hands and semi bit the glove I was wearing (did not apply pressure), retreated to the back of the den and appeared tense. As to not upset Amare I took her picture in the den and wasn’t able to collar her.

06/19/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Amare was brought in as a stray so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. During intake briefly allowed petting while she was eating, then gently swatted at the admissions counselor and retreated. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very nervous, tense, resisted handling, tried to flee, swatting EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Amare is crouched under her kuranda bed, a little tense, looking at the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Amare remains crouched in place, continues to look at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Amare sits up and becomes alert. Reaction to touch: Amare moves quickly around the kennel to avoid being touched. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Shy, Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Amare 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/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 SUMMARY: Amare tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only
