05/13/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/13/17 09:11 Basic Info: Louie A1111924 is a neutered male brown tabby & white DSH feline who was given to the owner as a gift from a friend as a kitten & is being surrendered due to moving to where pets aren’t allowed. He was last seen by a vet last year when neutered and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Louie is friendly with strangers. He hasn’t been around other animals but was gentle, playful, relaxed/affectionate & respectful with the adults & a 5yr old in the home, however when the child’s energy became too much for Louie he would run/hide from the child. Louie hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: During car rides Louie will meow. He isn’t bothered with being placed into a carrier, being brushed or being held/pet (but it’s for short periods of time if he isn’t comfortable with you or he wants to be let go of). Louie hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting. When the owner tried to trim his nails or bathe him they stated Louie will struggle to get away until you let go. Louie scratches on the wall at times & doesn’t have a scratching post. For a New Family to Know: Louie is described as friendly, affectionate, quiet/mellow & playful (at times) with a low-medium activity level. When the owner is home Louie follows them around. He’s an indoor only cat that sleeps in the dining room because it’s dark and quiet, likes to lay on the windowsill, eats wet Purina cat chow 2-3x a day (according to the owner dry cat food makes him vomit) and uses a hooded litter box with clumping litter within. Intake Behavior: Louie had a soft body, eyes and allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & have his pictures taken; he’ll lean into pets as well & purr. Louie moved around quite a bit and made several attempts to jump off the backdrop table. He didn’t make much eye contact with the camera and his moving around made it difficult to get a picture of him hence the kennel picture. Louie didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease.
