**SAFE 10/14/16***SECOND CHANCE TONIGHT FOR THIS SUPER SWEET AND GENTLE CREAMSICLE GAL WHO NEEDS A NEW FRIEND–BE IRIS’ HERO! Sad sigh! Poor Iris looks so dejected in her intake pic and who can blame her? This lovely and loving lady was dumped at the shelter along with several of her feline housemates due to their owner having “too many pets.” Iris is just four years old, purrfectly healthy, easy to handle, kind–just a little shy so it’s recommended she go to a quiet home without kids.

10/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Iris was brought in with limited information on her behavioral tendencies in a home environment. Her owner stated she was living with many other cats and they are all not socialized. The owner says she doesn’t allow anyone to touch her, besides the owner, but she is sociable with the other cats she lived with. She did not allow handling upon intake and was very fearful during her initial medical exam, shivering with a tense body. She did not show signs of aggression, but will flee when given the chance. Reaction to assessor: Iris was calm and relaxed by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Iris focuses on the assessor with wide eyes and starts breathing rapidly. She softens a little afterwards and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Iris becomes alert, but remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Iris focuses on the assessor’s hand, but remains immobile and allows gentle petting on her head and body. She twitches slightly and will slowly re-adjust her body in an attempt to shift away from contact. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Iris tolerates attention and petting 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 her new home. 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.
