Monkey has not bitten a person or animal before. The owner states that Monkey has been constistently pooping outside of his litterbox every day for 3 months. She spoke with a behavioralist that suggested getting multiple litterboxes but it has not seem to work. She did not seek any medical attention for this behavior. During the car ride, Monkey was relaxed in his carrier. His owner has not tried to brush him, bathe him, or put him in a carrier. He struggles when he is picked up and held. Monkey is described as an independent cat that will approach humans on his time. He will seek human attention when he wants to be loved. His activity level is low to medium.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Shy, but warms up after a few minutes of observing and sniffing them. Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats or dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: No bite history Litter box training: Has been defecating outside litter box for 3 months Energy level/descriptors: Monkey is described as an independent cat that will approach humans on his time. His activity level is low to medium. Other notes: He will seek human attention when he wants to be loved. His favorite activity is sleeping on his scratching chair and cat tree. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – growling, attempting to swat, stressed- exam performed through cat net ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/11/17 In kennel, hissing and growling as Interact with the cats above and below him. He makes eye contact and hisses when I speak to him, sitting up with a tense body. Sounds like a lion. Very uncomfortable. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Monkey was lying down, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Monkey slowly approaches the front and leans his head on the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Monkey retreats to the back and hisses. Reaction to touch: Monkey grumbles, but slowly approaches to sniff the assessor’s hand. He hisses whenever the hand extends towards him and backs away. He allows brief gentle petting on his head with a very slow approach, but hisses again and shifts away to avoid further contact while grumbling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Independent, Calm
POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Inappropriate elimination – Monkey’s previous owner reports he has been consistently defecating outside his litter box every day for 3 months. The owner provided him with multiple litter boxes, but his behavior continued. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but 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. We also recommend that Monkey be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house, in quiet and low traffic areas as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litter box(es). – Fearful – Monkey has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Monkey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.

Arrived from same home as K17-087665, but all are housed separately (??). Highly attention-seeking, vocal, tends to grumble some, but was social and friendly when I opened cage door; head butts (huge cat, giant head), pushes in, allows head and shoulder rubs, tail begins to sway, starts following hand intently with further petting. Never swatted or used mouth, but seems to overstimulate himself. He’s definitely a big fat housecat, would benefit by having an experienced family. Only 2yo, is respectful of his feline friends and is tolerant of children (per owner profile). Gave some new toys and chicken (which he didn’t eat).
Sprawled out on blanket, relaxed, a little aloof (new photo submitted for profile; he seems quiet happy with himself, confident). Perks up quickly, immediately comes to the front for attention. Really leans in for attention after I open cage door, appreciates a good head rub. Allows petting all along his back, but seems to get a bit overstimulated at times, gives clear signals. A huge fat cat, bright and alert, attention-seeking, social, friendly, used to living with other cats. Allowed pick up but wasn’t thrilled about it. Might suggest doing in-kennel interactions w/ potential adopters.
Basic Information: Lubah is a 2 year old altered male domestic shorthair. He was given by a family member a year ago. It was mention he had health issues in the past which is discuss in medical memos. Owner surrenders Lubah due to moving.

Behavior: Lubah has never bitten or scratched anyone. He meows during his car ride to the shelter. He was given bath in January and was afraid of the water. He never had a nail trim and doesn’t like to be picked up and held.
For a New Family to Know: Lubah is trained to use the bathroom in litter box with a hood. He likes to sit in chairs and follow owner when hungry. He eats dry food called Meow mix or tuna. Lubah spends most of his time on the couch. Owner believes Lubah will do best in one cat home.
