KODI – A1103743
Safe - 3-4-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
SAFE 3/4/17- Kodi needs a little extra time adjusting to new people, but this young kitty still deserves a loving family who understands and can give him the independence he loves! He would make the ideal watchdog (or cat, we should say!) as he is an active fellow who’s always off exploring and taking in the sights. Some would say he’s a little rough around the edges, but we know that all that means is he’ll be the perfect feline find for any family looking for a confident, go at his own pace kind of guy!

Plan: No treatment at this moment
Hiding in box at rear of kennel, body low, trying to be invisible. Allows touching all over, but flinches a little. Needs some time to adjust. Sprayed Feliway, gave some treats and fresh wet food and a new blanket and catnip plush toy.
Attempted to clicker train, but he may still be too fearful to eat in front of me. He was a little curious, sniffing my hand when offered. He accepted gentle petting on his head and body, but started to tremble. He appeared extremely wary of the environment, looking around with wide eyes. Left alone for now.
Noted in his profile that he is very uncomfortable with strangers; this environment, with new and many people constantly coming to and near him, is very stressful for him. He’s showing signs of being more fearful today: rapidly breathing, huge eyes, trembling, not allowing interaction. Didn’t seem to eat anything overnight. Offered some tuna but he didn’t eat with me there. Offered some different varieties of wet food. Sprayed Feliway. Covered one side of his double kennel with a screen. He needs time to adjust.
Kodi is a two-year-old neutered blue and white domestic shorthair mix. He came to his previous owners as a gift from a friend as a kitten. He was surrendered due to the Kodi showing behavior concerns. Kodi has no known health issues or injures and has no known vet history.
Around strangers Kodi is very uncomfortable and will hiss and swat if the individual tries to approach him. Kodi has been around children of various ages but was very rough and will hiss or hide from the children. He has not lived in a home with other any other animal.
Kodi loves to scratch on the leather couch and the wooden doors in the home. He does not like baths and will attempt to jump out of the tub. Kodi will hiss and swat if someone tries to trim his nails. He struggles out of the hold if he is picked up or being placed in a carrier.
Kodi was described as confident, independent and fearful around strangers. He has a high activity level but rarely seeks attention when the owner is home. He is feed dry and wet food 3 times a day. Kodi is litter boxed trained and uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. He enjoys playing with his fabric scratching post.
