LOLA – A1117783
Safe - 7-16-2017 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
*** SAFE 07/16/17*** LOVELY LOLA IS A 7 MONTH OLD KITTEN WHO LIKES TO PLAY – BUT A LITTLE ROUGH SOMETIMES. Lola was kept in a separate room from her owner’s child and was never socialized around him, (and most likely the child was never taught how to treat a pet) Consequently, this frisky kitten ended up at the shelter where she is now facing her end if an experienced cat purrson doesn’t offer to foster or adopt. Lola gives head-butts and purrs but gets over-stimulated. PLEASE GIVE THIS KITTEN A PLACE TO CALL HOME – RESERVE BY NOON!

07/07/17 15:54 Basic Information: Lola is a 7 month year old female that has no current or previous medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner had Lola for almost 7 months but had to surrender due to Lola playing too rough. Socialization: According to the owner Lola is not socialized and would hide the whole time if someone came over to the house. With the owner, Lola would become overstimulated fast and start to play rough and would even swat the owner. She has not been around small children as owner did would keep her in a separate room from her child. Lola spent a few days around a male cat and constantly hissed and growled when she was not hiding. She has also been around a male small dog and would hiss and swat at the other animal. Lola does not have a bite history. Behavior: Owner has never tried to give Lola a bath, trim her nails or disturb her while she is sleeping so behavior is unknown. When someone would try to brush her coat, Lola would hiss and swat. She will struggle to run away if someone picks her up and tries to hold her. For a New Family to Know: Lola is described as friendly, mellow, independent and quiet. She has a low activity level and likes to play with string toys. Lola was kept indoors only and is litter box trained. In the home, she used an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. Owner did not have a scratching post in the home and stated that Lola would not scratch on any furniture. She was fed dry food only brand 9 Lives. Owner stated that Lola does not like fast movement and will hiss and swat if someone approaches her too fast. Behavior during intake: Lola had a stiff body and was hiding in the back of the carrier. When counselor went to scan for mc, Lola began to hiss and tried to swat at counselors hand. No other handling was done due to behavior.

Reaction when softly spoken to: Lola stretches and approaches the front of the cage. Reaction to cage door opening: Lola remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Lola head-butts the assessor and begins to purr, but becomes overstimulated especially if her abdomen or paws are touched and will hiss and swat. Reaction to being picked up: Lola is calm during this type of handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Affectionate, Insistent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Overstimulation RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – No other pets OR multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats Behavior observations _x_ Experienced, Adult Only Lola solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. Due to overstimulation leading to hissing and swatting we feel that this cat will do best in an adult only home. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. She may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
