07/03/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/03/17 09:27 Basic Info: Dory A1117304 is a female calico DSH who was given to the owner as a gift a 1yr ago and is being surrendered along with her kitten Nemo A1117305 due to her unpredictable behavior; biting and or scratching people . They’ve never been to a veterinarian & currently have no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Dory is shy for a several minutes with strangers but usually stays away from them but has scratched a teen that was visiting the home a couple of weeks ago (did not break skin/bleed). She hasn’t been around dogs but was fearful or aggressive (hissing, growling and sometimes swatting or biting with the adults & a teen in the home (the younger children were kept away from Dory due to her behavior). Dory has bitten/scratched a couple of people. Behavior: During car rides Dory will meow. She isn’t bothered by being put into a carrier. Dory hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting, had her nails trimmed, been bathed or brushed. Dory likes to be pet/held/affectionate on her terms and not for too long. For a New Family to Know: Dory is described as mellow, independent, aloot, playful (alone) & quiet with low-medium activity level. When the owner is home Dory follows them around sometimes. She’s an indoor cat that sleeps around the home, eats dry & canned Friskies cat food 2-3x a day, uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter within and scratches on the couch; she doesn’t have a scratching post. Intake Behavior: Dory allowed to be picked up and placed into a kennel while hissing but after that she attempted to scratch me through the kennel bars while hissing, keening & growling. Due to these behaviors I was unable to scan, collar or take her picture on the backdrop.

Reaction to cage door opening: Dory stands with tail up, slowly sniffing the hand. Reaction to touch: Dory began to grumble when attempting to pet on the head then paws (claws not exposed) the hand while pinning it down. As her distance increases she then turns around and engages to sniff again then licks the hand and grumbles while she sat in place . BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Dory may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
