06/30/17 16:09 Fluffy is a 2 year old male gray and white cat who was surrendered by his owner due to too many animals in the home. The owner stated that he has had Fluffy since he was a kitten and he has no known medical problems. Owner stated that when around strangers Fluffy is fearful and mostly hides in the bedroom. Fluffy has not spent time around children or dogs so it is unknown how he will react. Fluffy has spent time around other cats and he is relaxed and affectionate. When playing with other cats he is gentle. On the way to the ACC in the car Fluffy was meowing but stayed in the carrier. He has never been bathed nor had his nails trimmed so it is unknown how he will react. Fluffy isn’t bothered when he is held. Owner described Fluffy as not socialable & fearful but Fluffy likes to play with string and balls. Fluffy was given wet and dry food. He is very much litter box trained and never has accidents.

Reaction when softly spoken to: Fluffy’s ears tilt sideways and his eyes widen and become dilated. Reaction to cage door opening: Fluffy arches his back and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Fluffy’s ears bend completely flat and he hisses when the assessor extends his hand out. He tolerates touch briefly, low growls then shifts away to the other side of the double kennel. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Fluffy has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Fluffy 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. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
