12/01/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/01/16 13:43 Charlie’s owner says he’s shy and fearful of newcomers. He’s never lived with kids but plays gently and exuberantly around his owner and owner’s friends. Charlie has lived with two other kittens (his brothers) and while they all like playing with each other, he can be more reserved and respectful of the other cats’ space. He has never bitten or scratched another human or animal. Today was Charlie’s first car-ride and he laid down and was quiet the entire time but his owner says it’s because he was nervous. He’s never had an accident and likes going potty in his uncovered litterbox full of clay litter. Charlie isn’t bothered when he gets bathed but will meow a lot. He also loves getting brushed and picked up, but he’ll let you know with a low growl that he’s ready to be put down. His owner never clipped his nails so it’s unknown how Charlie would react. Instead, Charlie would scratch on his favorite piece of furniture in the house but didn’t like his small scratching post made of carpet. He isn’t bothered when you wake him during his slumber but he is afraid, but will not struggle, to get into a carrier. His owner describes him as friendly, affectionate and mellow. For the most part, Charlie is pretty reserved. He has a low activity level until he’s ready to play. When he’s in the playing mood, Charlie enjoys balls (especially ones made of paper) and also string-based toys. He loves kicking and chasing the paper balls all over the house. When his owner is home, Charlie follows her around. He talks a lot, which is one of his owners’ favorite qualities of his. Charlie would sleep on the foot of his owner’s bed but hides when he hears loud music. He enjoys eating Purina indoor dry food, about one cup, once a day. His favorite treats are Friskies. On intake, Charlie did not want to come out of his carrier. He was fearful and tried sticking to the back corner. I slightly tiltled the carrier and he came out but tried to jump off the counter to flee. Charlie allowed me to keep picking him back up and placing him in the center of the counter. He allowed me to collar him and take pictures but wanted to go back inside the carrier. When I opened the carrier door, Charlie walked right into it.

12/04/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Charlie’s previous owner reports he is shy and fearful of strangers. He has never lived with children, but he plays gently and exuberantly around his owner and the owner’s friends. He has lived with his siblings and they all played with each other. He is respectful of the other cats’ space. He loves getting brushed and picked up, but will emit a low growl when he’s ready to be put back down. He was described as a friendly, affectionate, and mellow cat. He is pretty reserved and has a low activity level, unless he is ready to play. Charlie tends to follow the owner around at home. The owner reports he likes to talk a lot, but may hide when he hears loud music. Reaction to assessor: Charlie was lying down, facing away from the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Charlie slowly turns his head to face the assessor, alert, but had almond-shaped eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Charlie remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Charlie sniffs the assessor’s hand, but was hesitant of touch. He accepts gentle touch on his head, but flinches as the stroke moves over his shoulders. He shifts away and wraps his tail tightly against his body. He continues to allow gentle petting, but has a low body posture and he lip licks, his ears bent down during the interaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Charlie tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
