**SAFE 08/02/16** Lala doesn’t know why her former owner couldn’t take her too. Apparently, the new home can’t accommodate a CAT! Lala is a 3 year-old domestic gray and white tabby and only weighs about 9 pounds. The shelter staff noted that she came in on 7/3/16 and as of today, has stopped eating food. She longs for an owner who is never going to return and take her back like it was all a bad dream. This little sweetie is so upset, her eyes dilated during intake out of fear. She knows this place is no good and she wants out. Her former owner left notes that although she didn’t grow up with children around, she is very tolerant of them and plays gently. She also appreciates head rub by visitors. She’s just an all around good cat who needs a family that appreciates her. Please apply to adopt or foster this beautiful girl named Lala before it’s too late!

07/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lala’s previous owner reports she has been socialized with young children and got along well with them, playing gently. She is friendly and outgoing around strangers, and was relaxed and affectionate with the resident cats he lived with. She enjoys getting brushed and being picked up and held. She doesn’t like going into carrier, so the owner wrapped her around in a towel to easily place her inside. She was described as friendly, playful, and affectionate with a medium activity level. She loves to give kisses and will follow the owner around the home seeking attention. Reaction to assessor: Lala was calm and relaxed, lying down upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lala looks at the assessor and averts her gaze. Reaction to cage door opening: Lala becomes stiff and alert, and starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to touch: Lala sniffs the assessor’s hand and her eyes would dilate, then un-dilate. She shifts away from touch, but allows gentle petting and wraps her tail closely to her body. She twitches when touched on her body and appears tense. Behavior Determination: Experience Lala tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. 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 any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
