LILO – A1083525
Safe - 8-24-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 08/24/16** SECOND CHANCE FOR LOVELY LILO!! SAVE HER NOW!! LILO SURRENDERED DUE TO SICK OWNER! Likely a situation where the owner will not be getting any better, and its sad because poor LILO may also be in the same boat. LILO is a 13 year old UN- SPAYED CAT! It’s important to keep that in mind, especially when you read in the notes that she’s been urinating outside the litter box. Female cats will do that if not SPAYED OR it could be a UTI. We have no way of knowing for sure because she wasn’t seen by a vet for this issue. So please, first, OFFER to FOSTER OR ADOPT AVERAGE RATED LILO…THEN bring her to your vet. All likelihood a round if antibiotics will cure that “problem” and she can used to a second part of her life…with YOU!

She will spend most of the day sleeping or relaxing under the bed or in other dark secluded places and will occassionally come out to be pet. She was reported to be particularly affectionate during mealtime. Lilo doesn’t like to let strangers touch her, and will mostly avoid them or swat at them if they attempt to make contact with her. She doesn’t play with toys very much. Lilo has never lived around children or dogs. She lived with another male cat most of her life, and would often jump on him or swat at him. She preferred for him to leave her alone. She has not bitten a human or animal. Lilo has some litter box issues. She was reported to pee outside of the litterbox every day or every other day. Lilo has never been brought to the vet for this issue. There is an uncovered litterbox in the house. Lilo will also scratch the bed and couch, but lived in a home without any scratching posts. Lilo will struggle when getting a bath, and was sedated when her nails were last trimmed. She enjoys being brushed on her back but will not allow stomach brushing. She struggles when people attempt to hold her. Lilo’s previous owner stated that she has a low activity level and spends most of her time sleeping or relaxing. She has only ever lived indoors. She likes to sleep under the bed or in closets. She is used to eating a can of wet food and a bowl of dry food daily. At the ACC, Lilo was quiet in her carrier. When her carrier door was open, she poked her head out of it but didn’t move further out until food was put on the table. She ate her food intently while she was being collared and photographed. She allowed counselors to pet her head gently while she was eating. Lilo was reluctant to get back into her carrier. She was eventually coaxed inside by placing a trail of treats inside the carrier. She remained quiet and looked around the room inside her carrier while waiting to be taken to medical.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lilo’s previous owner describes her to be independent, shy, and affectionate. She will spend most of the day sleeping or relaxing under the bed or in other dark secluded places and will occasionally come out to be petted. She was reported to be particularly affectionate during meal time. Lilo doesn’t like to let strangers touch her, and will mostly avoid them or swat at them if they attempt to make contact with her. She has lived with another male cat and would often jump on him or swat at him, and preferred he leave her alone. She has a low activity level and spends most of her time sleeping or relaxing. Reaction to assessor: Lilo was calm and relaxed, lying down when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lilo looks at the assessor and blinks slowly. Reaction to cage door opening: Lilo remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Lilo sniffs the assessor’s hand and accepts petting on her head and body. She lies in place and closes her eyes, leaning in for cheek rubs. Reaction to being picked up: Lilo is a bit tense with pick up (possibly due to girth), but allows handling. Lilo’s owner reports she has litter box accidents, where she urinates outside of the litter box every day or every other day. She has never been brought to the vet for this issue and we are unaware if any modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. Behavior Determination: Average Lilo interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
