10/25/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/25/16 17:42 BASIC INFO Ivan is a 4.5 year old male DSH cat. His family got him from a friend when he was 2 months old and surrendered him because he bit them. SOCIALIZATION Ivan is friendly/outgoing with new people, approaching them and allowing them to pet him. He lived with an adult woman and 5 children from ages 0 and older. Ivan is usually relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with the children, allowing even the baby to pet him. He lived with a female cat that came into the home 1 year ago as a kitten; he tries to mate with her and she had 2 kittens 2 months ago. Ivan lived with a Chihuahua that was in the home before his family got him, and a small puppy that’s 8 months old; he sometimes tries to strike the dogs from behind. 1.5 years ago, a 19 year old male in the home picked Ivan up to remove him from the empty tub. Ivan bit his arm 3-4 times, breaking skin and drawing blood. On 10/13, he was walking up behind one of the dogs and his adult female owner stepped between them. Ivan bit her lower leg and wrapped his body around her leg, scratching her leg as well. She screamed his name and he ran away and hid. The bite broke skin and drew blood. BEHAVIOR Ivan doesn’t mind being woken up. He allows his owners to hold him for about a minute and then begins struggling to jump away. He is tense but tolerant during baths. He struggles when put in a carrier. Ivan mounts stuffed animals. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Ivan’s family describes him as friendly, playful, independent, and medium energy. He follows his owner. He plays with string and stuffed toys. He lived inside, slept on the couch, and ate dry Purina food. He’s littertrained and used a hooded litterbox with clumping litter. He scratched the couches. INTAKE Ivan was tense with wide eyes, lying down with his tail tight to his side. He maintained this while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, picked him up, and positioned him for pictures. He walked into his carrier with a low body, shivering a little.

10/28/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ivan’s former owner reported that he was affectionate until he was about 2 years old. She thinks he became more independent and became defensive with the Chihuahua; also with the new additions female cat ~1 year ago and her new puppy ~6 months ago, may have played a role with him becoming more defensive. Reaction to assessor: Ivan looks tense, crouched position at the back when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Ivan remains immobile with head up and alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Ivan allows the stroke, but began to lip lick then slightly leans into the assessor’s hand while he remains wary with his environment. Placement determination: Experience / no child Ivan 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.
