10/29/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/29/16 15:35 Basic Info: Bellanova A1095159 is a female Tortie DSH feline who was given to the owner from a neighbor a month ago & is being surrendered due to landlord conflict. Bellanova’s last veterinary visit is unknown and currently she has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Bellanova is shy for several minutes. She hasn’t been around/lived with other animals or children but was gentle, relaxed, playful, exuberant, affectionate and a little rough at times during play (biting but not too hard) with the adults. Bellanova hasn’t bitten/scratched to where it drew blood or broke skin. Behavior: Bellanova isn’t bothered by the following: being brushed, being in a car, being picked up/held or with being placed into a carrier. She hasn’t had her nails trimmed, had a bath nor has she been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Bellanova is described as friendly but fiesty, confident, playful, mellow (at times), independent & quiet with a medium activity level. When the owner is home she follows them around sometimes. She enjoys ball & mouse toys at times and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home. Bellanova eats dry Friskies cat food 1-3x a day. She is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within. Bellanova doesn’t have a scratching post and it wasn’t noticed if she scratched on items in the home. Intake Behavior: Bellanova allowed to be scanned (-) then after her body tensed up and she began to hiss, growl and swat. Due to these behaviors I was unable to collar or take her picture on the backdrop. She was placed into the kennel with linen.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Former owner stated around strangers Bellanova is shy for several minutes. She hasn’t been around/lived with any other animals or children but was gentle, relaxed, playful, exuberant, affectionate and a little rough at times during play (nipping, but not too hard) with the adults. Please take note: Bellanova is declawed front paws. Reaction to assessor: Bellanova looks neutral, rolling over by the front when approached by the assessor Reaction to door opening: Bellanova stands at the front of the cage, stress meowing. Reaction to touch: Bellanova at first did not allow the stroke however, while she was hissing she then solicits attention and swats at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Bellanova solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to stress meow and swat (no claws) at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Bellanova becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
