01/24/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/24/17 21:03 Basic information: Kitty is a roughly 9 yr. old female domestic short hair mix. The owner surrendered Kitty because she she bit her son. Kitty has no health problems and the owner has not taken him to a vet. Socialization: The owner states that around strangers Kitty is shy and somewhat fearful. Kitty has bitten the owner’s son after the son accidently stepped on Kitty. Kitty has lived with two children between the ages of 3 and 10 years old, normally Kitty gets along with them but lately she has become distant from them and does not want to interact with them. Behavior: Kitty has never been bathed, had her nails trimmed. She does not mind having his coat brushed. But she does not like to be picked up or put in a carrier. For a new family to know: The owner describes Kitty as a shy independant cat with a medium activity level. Kitty has played with rubber ball and string cat toys; she lives mostly indoors and sleeps anywhere in the house that he wants. In the home Kitty will keep to herself but does seek attention every so often. Kitty eats name brand dry cat food and is open feed. She is litter box trained and uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. Kitty has never been given a scratching post so the owner does not know if she will use it or not. Behavior during intake: During intake Kitty was very tense with stiff body, she escaped from her carrier and attempted to run away from the staff member and when picked up she growled and hissed. She did not allow us to scan (-) put on collar, or photographed and placed in cat kennel.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: very fractious, hissing, growling, swatting, striking ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow, VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: X__ Experienced cat parent Kitty tolerates petting but due to her weight doesn’t seem to like being picked up POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _X_ Uncomfortable with pick up BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Kitty did not appear to like being picked up during her behavior evaluation. Please keep in mind there are many reasons why a cat may be uncomfortable with this type of handling and that this may not necessarily translate into a home environment. We recommend any future home with children be counseled in respecting the cat’s space and for the family to use care when picking her up, especially while she is still adjusting to her new home.
