01/30/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/30/17 19:19 On intake, Iodice came out of founder’s carrier but struggled when counselor tried to put him into one of ours. He did not display any defensive mechanisms (ie hissing, swatting etc). When it came time to collar and take pictures, counselor let him back out and he nudged his head into her hand. She collared him with no problem and took a picture. Iodice was very curious and tried walking around the room and didn’t want to stay still. He walked back into carrier on own when counselor put food in it.

02/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Iodice was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was found inside of a building and was reported to be hissing at the residents. Upon intake, he nudged his head against the counselor’s hand and allowed handling. He was very curious, trying to walk around the room. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat. Reaction to assessor: Iodice approaches the front and meows softly, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Iodice meows again and rubs his head against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Iodice becomes alert, but remains by the front. Reaction to touch: Iodice was a bit hesitant, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. He accepts petting with a slow approach and slowly warms up, head-butting and leaning in for rubs. He seems to really appreciate attention, arching his back and purring loudly, but may hiss randomly and back away. He may become overwhelmed, but with some coaxing he will come forward again and solicit attention. Reaction to pick up: Iodice becomes tense and allows handling, but whines and wiggles to be placed back down. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 01/31/17 Curious, but seems conflicted. Eyes dilated, exploring kennel and rubbing against furnishings. Came to the front and rubbed against the bars when spoken to. Calm when door opened, interested in treats, hissed when touched. 2/1/17 Eyes dilated, but soft body today. Rolling all the way over on first visit. Later, chirped and started rubbing against the bars on approach. Stayed at the front when door opened. Briefly leaned into pets, then abruptly hissed, flattened ears, and backed away. Became soft-bodied again very quickly, moved back up to the front when door closed and resumed rubbing against the bars and chirping. Allowed gentle touches on head. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very nervous, displayed distance-increasing behaviors ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate, Active VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Affectionate, Curious RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced – Penny appreciates attention and petting but become overwhelmed during the interaction and hiss as a response. He may also need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
