***SAFE 05/12/16***GET READY TO CHA CHA WITH CHI CHI–TERRIFIC RETURNED TUX NEEDS NEW FRIEND! Chi Chi is a fab five year old feline who was dumped at the shelter due to alleged “house soil”–a condition for which Chi Chi’s purrson did not take her to the vet–to find out if there may be a medical issue. We say “alleged” condition because Chi Chi’s notes are conflicting. The former owner says Chi Chi was a gift when the sweet tux was a kitten and was described as friendly, outgoing and it was noted that she lived with an infant with whom she was very gentle. Also, in her notes, it says that Chi Chi was originally adopted from the shelter back in 2014 and at that time–was a surrender with “no answer” for reason why. Hmm—something smells funny here and it ain’t cat poop!!! In any case, Chi Chi is a healthy, spayed and gentle gal who is in dire need of a rescue angel and desperately needs us to advocate for her precious life which is in peril this evening. Can you be the kind purrson to open up your heart and home to this great gal? We don’t know why Chi Chi was having litterbox issues–could be hers was not clean enough or there’s a medical issue that needs to be handled. Could also very well be that Chi Chi was stressed and once she decompresses in her new home, the situation will resolve by itself. Please offer Chi Chi a new “leash” on life by offering to foster or adopt. Contact our help desk for [email protected] We are this precious pet’s only hope. Don’t let her down!!!!

05/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chi Chi’s previous owner reports she is friendly and outgoing around strangers, and will engage in gentle play. She has lived with an infant child and was relaxed around the child, retreating whenever the child started to play rough. She has swatted at the kitten in the home whenever the kitten got near her. She has a medium activity level and tends to follow the owner around at home. Reaction to Assessor: Chi Chi was inside a hidey den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chi Chi comes out of the den and looks at the assessor with dilated eyes, but her tail is straight and up. After speaking to her some more, she leans against the cage door and rubs against it. Reaction to cage door opening: Chi Chi becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Chi Chi was hesitant, but sniffs the assessor’s hand and rubs her cheeks on it. When stroking her back, she becomes tense and grumbles, but will lean against the hand and solicit attention if you pet her gently on the head. Chi Chi’s previous owner has reported she has been eliminating outside of her litter box for the past 6 months. They have tried changing and relocating the box, but the accidents continued to occur. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Chi Chi be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litter box(es). Placement Determination: Experience No Child Chi Chi tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to his or her 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.
