05/12/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/12/17 13:04 Basic Info: Ashley A1111750 is a 14yr old spayed dilute tortie DSH feline who was found as a stray 14yrs ago & is being surrendered due to the owner not wanting her anymore and her vomiting after eating sometimes; she hasn’t been seen by a vet concerning this issue. Ashley’s last veterinarian visit was in 2016 and according to the owner she vomits after eating sometimes. Socialization: Around strangers Ashley is friendly/outgoing. She hasn’t been around other animals or children and was gentle, relaxed, playful & affectionate with the adults in the home. Ashley hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: Ashley hasn’t been on a car ride. She isn’t bothered by the following: being picked up/held, brushed or with being placed into a carrier. She hasn’t been given a bath since she was a kitten, had her nails trimmed nor has she been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Ashley is described as friendly, affectionate, confident & quiet with a low-medium activity level. When the owner is home Ashley follows them around. She enjoys ball & mouse toys at times and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home. Ashley eats dry Friskies 1-3x a day, is uncovered litter box trained with crystal or clumping litter within and used to have a scratching post that she didn’t always use and scratches (at times) on the couch or wall frame. Intake Behavior: Ashley had a soft body/eyes and allowed all handling. She allowed to be collared & taken pictures of during which she was head butting, however it took me several tries to get a not too blurry picture due to her moving and making several attempts to jump off the back drop table. Ashley didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease. I went back to try and take a clear kennel picture of Ashley however again she kept attempting to jump down out of the kennel and when I wouldn’t let her she became perhaps upset and hissed then swatted at me (no contact was made). After a couple of minutes I went back to pet her and she allowed me to.
