12/04/16 16:15 Maurice A1098652 is a 15 year old neutered DSH cat. He was adopted from a shelter 13 years ago with another cat, Jade A1098650. Their owner passed away and their family could not keep or rehome them. Maurice lived with an adult woman. He hides from strangers. His family describes her as shy, mellow, quiet, and low energy. He spent time with his owner and played with stuffed toys. He and Jade spent all of their time together and were affectionate together. Maurice is littertrained. He scratched a horizontal cardboard scratching pad and a rope-covered cat tree, and didn’t scratch furniture. He ate dry and wet Friskies food. He didn’t mind being put into a carrier. Maurice walked around and was tense. He was tolerant while I pet him, scanned him (+), collared him, picked him up, photographed him, and put him in a carrier. He didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Maurice lived with an adult woman. He hides from strangers. His family describes her as shy, mellow, quiet, and low energy. He spent time with his owner and played with stuffed toys. He and Jade (the other cat) spent all of their time together and were affectionate together. Reaction to assessor: Maurice looks tense, hiding in the cat den when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Maurice remains immobile in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Maurice accepts the stroke, but stiffens up and shows no interest to the touch. Placement determination: Experience / no child Maurice tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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 without children.
