***SAFE 02/27/17*** FURINA is a sweet senior who lived with adults and kids and had good behavior in the home…..owner claims she “attacks” but never gave any info – but we do see FURINA may have a mammary cyst so somehow we may think this is the reason she was dumped. Please be her angel tonight!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: 5 adults and 1 one-year-old child Behavior toward children: Generally ignores. Behavior toward strangers: Furina lets them settle in before she approaches to meet. Behavior toward cats/dogs: She has never interacted with other animals Litter box training: She is litter-box trained and used a hooded box with clay litter. Energy level/descriptors: Furina is described as affectionate, mellow, confident, assertive, independent, and quiet. She has a low activity level. She does not play with toys or people. She slept on her former owner’s bed. Other notes: Admissions counselors noted that during intake Furin meowed inside the carrier but allowed the counselor to pick her up and place her on the counter. She allowed petting, and to be collared, scanned, and photographed without behavior concerns. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/15/17 Lying against kennel door, was resistant to attempts to touch or open door, would swat and hiss. When spoken to softly from the front of the kennel, she eases body posture, relaxes, slow blinks. She really enjoyed a plush toy I gave her, rubbed her face against it, but never moved from that position of lying against kennel door. She is grooming some. Is fearful, needs time to adjust to this environment. Sprayed Feliway, gave fresh food (on other side of kennel), and some treats. 02/16/17 More at ease today, but still fearful. Resting quietly on blanket in center of one side of her kennel when I first approach, calm, slow blinks. Doesn’t move when I open cage door and reach to her; she sniffs my fingers. She didn’t seem open to being pet, so I didn’t force it. Showed a lot of interest in tuna and a tuna treat I made for her, focused on that for a while. Still has a fairly short limit on how much interaction she’s ready for before using distance-increasing behaviors (hissing, swat) to clearly let me know she’s had enough. A little progress today.
02/21/17 Sitting at the front of her kennel, calm & relaxed, chirps at me. Stays calm and social when I open cage door, lets me give head rubs, leans head in for more. Doesn’t want a lot of petting, clearly lets you know this. A little feisty, at least in this environment (is used to living in a home for all of her 11yrs), might be tough for her to be in adoptions where it’s busy and people would be sticking fingers in her cage. She probably won’t tolerate very small children. Low activity level, rests quietly most of the time, not much interest in toys, although she has a certain fondness for a small plush catnip-stuffed pillow that she nuzzles. Cute. 02/22/17 Sitting up near the front, calm, relaxed, watching me with soft eyes, chirps. Stays calm as I extend my hand to the front of the cage with the door shut, she sniffs, remains sitting up and watching me with soft eyes. She tends to be more alert and observant when she’s hungry, as she is now. When I open cage door she goes right to a bowl of food I place near her, ignoring me. She allows a few head rubs, but then tells me to stop. She’s not open to much touching or handling in the shelter, can be a little feisty but very clear about this. Low energy, generally quiet, not interested in toys, spends most of her time resting. Left some treats. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back, Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Calm, Mellow RECOMMENDATIONS: _X_ Experienced, adult home only Behavior observations _X_ Experienced, Adult Only Furina tolerates attention but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and 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 an experienced, adult only home
