11/14/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/14/16 17:00 BASIC INFO Gizmo is a 6 year old neutered DSH cat. His owner found him and his brother Baby as strays when they were 8 months old. They surrendered them because their primary caretaker passed away and the other family members don’t have time to care for them. SOCIALIZATION Gizmo hides from strangers. He runs away from children. He lived with an adult man and an adult woman. He would sometimes follow them around and rub his head and body against them. He enjoyed being pet by his family. Gizmo and Baby were relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played gently together. They slept together. Gizmo was relaxed near a dog in the home. He hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Gizmo is nervous in the car. He doesn’t mind being put in a carrier. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Gizmo’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, quiet, and medium energy. He played with balls, stuffed toys, and feathers. He lived inside and slept in his cat tower or box. He ate dry and wet Friskies foods and got Temptations treats. He’s littertrained, used a hooded litterbox with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. He scratched the couch and cardboard in addition to posts in the cat condo covered in rope and carpet. Gizmo was tense with wide eyes while I scanned him in his carrier (-). I stepped away and he jumped to the floor. He hid in corners and behind things. He walked away from me but didn’t run/struggle. He was stiff as I picked him up and placed him in a carrier.

Gizmo’s former owner stated he hides from strangers. He runs away from children. He lived with an adult man and an adult woman. Gizmo and Baby (A1096596, the brother) were relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played gently together. They slept together. Gizmo was relaxed near a dog in the home. Also, described him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, quiet, and medium energy. Reaction to assessor: Gizmo looks tense, crouched position at the back when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Gizmo remains stiff in place, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Gizmo slowly leans away with ears down to his side, but when touched he stiffens up and shows no interest. Placement determination: Experience / no child Gizmo tolerates attention and petting, but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
