Basic Information: Kendall is an 8 year old altered female domestic long hair. She was adopted from ACC when she was 2 years old. Owner hasn’t taken her to the vet to know if she has a health issue. Owner surrenders Kendall due to litter box issues and new baby.
Social Life and Personality: Kendall lived with one adult and teenagers ages 13, 15, and 17 years old. Owner stated Kendall is friendly and outgoing towards everyone in the home. She likes to rub against their legs when they come inside the house. Kendall has been around another cat but she will hiss and stay far away and the same with dogs. Kendall is indoors only and activity level is low. Owner describes Kendall as friendly, affectionate, mellow, confident and talkative.
Behavior: Kendall has been urinating outside litter box for a couple of months but owner is not sure if it’s medical or environmental. Kendall is fearful of broom, balloons and taking baths. She enjoys being picked up and held.
For a New Family to Know: Kendall had a litter box that had a hood on it. She ate Purina natural dry food twice a day. She liked to play with strings and laser points. She slept in her cat bed most of the time and meow thought out the house.
Intake Behavior: Upon intake Kendall was very vocal and nervous. She hissed when picked up and flee. She scanned positive for a microchip and allowed limited handling.
In medical, initial exam TK; has “use caution” stickers and wasn’t collared. When I first approach, she’s hunkered down in her litter box at rear of cage, ears pinned back, alernately growling and stress meowing. Extended my hand slowly, she hissed but didn’t otherwise react. Couldn’t coax forward with treats, but she seemed to recognize the sound of the treats bag shaking. Going slowly and gently I reached to her and gave some head rubs, which she allowed, and she seemed to become more at ease with slow, gentle petting. She eased her body posture, but stayed in the box, while I gave passes over her entire body and head. After a while, she began to purr. Potential to warm up. May always be a vocal cat, but she’s a sweet, social housecat that may prefer a quieter household. Began to eat when I placed a bowl of fresh wet food near her. Needs grooming, but a gorgeous cat.
Was stuck in a single cage for some reason; moved to a double; no problems moving. Tense, hisses when approached, but warms with attention. Needs time to adjust. Will check back later today. Update: Lying on blanket at back of cage, head low, appears uncomfortable. Hisses when I first approach, but warms up with petting, which he allows all over, begins to purr. Never gets up, but stretches out, eases some with the attention. Will brush his coat in the a.m. Seems to be eating wet food and using box appropriately. Gave a new plush toy and some treats.
