11/03/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/03/16 20:47 BASIC INFO Kratos is a 6 year old male DSH cat. His family got him as a stray when he was a kitten and surrendered him due to his owner’s health. SOCIALIZATION Kratos is shy and hides when new people visit. He lived with several adult men and women and a child from ages 8-14. He’s relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with the child. He plays exuberantly with people. Another female cat visited him and he initiated play with him. She would hiss at him and he would persist. Kratos hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Kratos doesn’t mind when someone brushes him, picks him up, holds him, or wakes him up. He is tense when put in a carrier. Kratos steals food that’s out and from the garbage. Since he was 1-2 years old, he began urinating and/or spraying outside of his box about once per week. His family finds puddles on beds and walls. He had clumping litter that his family scooped every few days. He had an uncovered box and his family recently replaced it with a hooded box. At first, the door was left on so he couldn’t get in. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Kratos’ family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, talkative, and medium energy. He follows his family, sits in their laps, and watches TV with them. He lived inside and slept on a cat bed. He ate dry and wet cat food and got tuna and lunch meat as treats. He scratched a vertical carpeted post in addition to the couch. INTAKE Kratos was tense with wide eyes and looked around but was tolerant while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, photographed him, picked him up, and placed him in a carrier. He didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize.
