04/04/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/04/16 18:54 BASIC INFO Jedi Sonya is a 2.5 year old female DSH cat. Her owner committed suicide 8 months ago and she was taken in by friends who think she was traumatized by this experience. SOCIALIZATION Jedi Sonya is fearful of strangers. She lived with 7 and 13 year old children and was respectful of them. She didn’t approach them but was relaxed when they approached and pet her. She plays gently with people. She hasn’t bit or scratched anyone in the past few weeks. There was a female kitten in the home and Jedi was very relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played very gently with her. She cuddled her, groomed her, slept with her, and taught her to play. BEHAVIOR Jedi is relaxed in the car. She doesn’t mind when someone picks her up, holds her, or wakes her up. She struggles when put in a carrier. When she first came to her new home, she would strike/scratch, and occasionally bite and run away when her new family approached and tried to handle her. She is usually friendly with them now, but will scratch and run away if they’re with her while she hears a loud noise (e.g. something falls and breaks next to her). FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Jedi’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, independent, aloof, talkative, and medium energy. She sometimes follows them and sits in their laps. She plays with balls, wand toys, stuffed toys, and bottle caps. She lived inside in her most recent home, but was an indoor-outdoor cat in her past home. She sleeps with her owners, in her cat tunnel, or in her cat condo. She ate dry and wet 9 Lives, Fancy Feast, and Friskies foods and got Temptations as treats. She’s littertrained, used a hooded litterbox with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. She scratched a vertical carpeted post in a cat condo. INTAKE Jedi was lying down with her paws in front of her. She had somewhat dilated pupils but a soft body. She hissed and struck when I scanned her (-). We transferred her to another carrier with a net and she was growling, hissing and striking.
