Has a bald spot on back between shoulders, maybe from flea meds? Card says she’s spayed, but she’s acting like she’s in heat. Vocal, busily rubbing against kennel door, attention-seeking, swatting a little, rolling over onto her side with her butt up, constantly in motion, running hot and cold. After talking with her softly at the front of the kennel, she let me pet all over and pick up and hold. She hissed at a cat in another cage. Let me pet all over while she ate, tail swishing. Wasn’t using den, removed. Social housecat, adding to socialization list. Gave a frozen tuna pop and fresh wet food. Hadn’t eaten overnight but ate some of the food I offered. Sprayed Feliway.
Cato is a 1 year old spayed Brown tabby and white Domestic SH. She came to her owner’s home as a stray, and is being surrendered to her behavior towards the other pets in the home. Cato has no known health issues or injures and has no bet history.
Around strangers Cato is very shy and usually takes a few minutes for her to relax, and become aloof to the individual. She has not lived in home children, but she has lived in a home with a male dog. Around the dog Cato will swat and hiss if the dog tries to approach her.
During car rides Cato is very relaxed, and calm in the carrier bag. Cato does not like to hold and will struggle out of hold. She will also struggle and hiss to get in or out of the carrier.
Cato was described as friendly, affectionate, and shy by her previous owner’s. She known to have a high activity level and like to follow her owner’s around the house. Cato loves to play with stuffed ball and string toys. She was dry food once a day and is litter-box trained. Cato uses a uncovered litter-box with pellets litter, she also to use her scratching post mad from hard wood, but she occasionally likes to scratch on the walls.
Upon intake Cato was very comfortable she was cried and growled while in the carrier. When the counselor attempted to open the carrier bag, Cato hissed and growled at the counselor and swatted at the top of the carrier. Cato was not collared.
