Intake condition EXAM REQ Intake Date 05/07/2017, From NY 11223, DueOut Date 05/07/2017,
Kyoza is a 15 year old domestic shorthair that was given to the owner by a family member. The person who gifted Kyoza to the owner had his front paws declawed. The owner has had him for 13 years and is not aware of any injuries or medical problems.
Around strangers, Kyoza takes a long time to adjust to new people. He will hide in fear under the nearest chair or bed. Once he does get to know someone, he is a loving and affectionate cat. He has lived with a child age 5 and was relaxed and respectful, not seeking too much attention or affection from him. He loves to play with stuffed mice by himself. He has not lived with other cats or dogs. He has not bitten another animal or person but has tried when he was younger.
Kyoza will hide when he sees new people and takes a while to adjust. During the car ride, he was relaxed unless there was a loud sound, then he would meow loudly. He has no litterbox issues that his owner was aware of. His owner tried to give him a bath and he struggled and would not allow to be put in the tub. He will also hiss when she would try to trim his back nails. He will only allow people he is comfortable with pick him up and hold him. He is not bothered by being disturbed in his sleep or placed in a carrier.
Kyoza is a shy cat but once he feels comfortable with you, he is a friendly and affectionate. His activity level is low and prefers to play with his stuffed mice by himself. At home, he tends to follow his owner around and sit near your feet. He loves to hunt for mice and watching people and birds from out the window. He was kept indoors only. He was fed wet and dry food and loved to eat crunchy tuna treats. He is use to having a jumbo sized hooded box with clumping clay. He was not given a scratching post but will make motions of scratching on rugs, carpets, and the couch.
Kyoza is an older and declawed cat so handling was kept to a minimal and done with the owner present. Owner states he has tried to bite her in the past when he is handled too much. He did allow to be scan, collared, photographed, and place in his carrier by his owner.

Sitting crouched in back of kennel with wide eyes, facing towards the wall. She makes eye contact when spoken to then looks away. She tolerates petting along her head and body while licking her lips and blinking, then turns to face away from me. Nervous – needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
