11/07/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/07/16 14:23 Kevin is a geriatric male cat, possibly a Ragdoll mix. His owner got him as a kitten and could no longer keep him due to her declining health. Kevin is friendly/outgoing with new people. His owner describe him as affectionate and talkative. He likes to sit in her lap and meows back at her when she talks to him. Heaven lived in a home with a small dog and was relaxed and would cuddle with him. Kevin lived inside. His owner fed him 9 Lives dry and wet foods. He urinated and defecated in a litterbox but also sprayed on the couch and bed. He would hiss as his owner chased him away. Heaven is tense but tolerant when put into a carrier. Kevin was lying down in his carrier, a little retreated. His eyes were super dilated. He hissed as I approached but tolerated being scanned (-) and photographed.
No Web Memo
11/10/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Kevin looks tense, hiding in the cat den when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Kevin remains in place, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Kevin slowly sniffs the assessor’s hand then accepts the stroke while he stiffens up with no response to the touch. Placement determination: Experience / no child Kevin 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.
