10/01/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/01/16 20:20 BASICS: Miles is a six year old orange tabby cat. She came in as an owner surrender. Her owner is no longer able to care for her because the owner is moving to a new home that will not allow animals. She had been in her owners care for approximately six years old. SOCIALIZATION: Around strangers Miles is likely to keep her distance. She needs some time, a couple minutes to get acclimated at which point she will allow the person to approach and pet her. She has never spent time around children so her behavior around them remains unknown. However she had shared her home with another cat and had gotten along very well with the cat. She had been an indoor cat and thusly has not had any interactions with dogs. BEHAVIOR: She uses her litterbox but will have accidents from time to time. For example she has been spraying urine in random places throughout the home. One thing in particular that makes her nervous are brooms. She does not destroy furniture but she does scratch the corners of the bed which is made of fabric. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW: Overall her owner describes her as a friendly and affectionate cat. When she wants attention she will rub her head on his leg over and over again. She is a medium activity level cat that enjoys chasing balls and at times engaging in independent play. When her owner is home she has a tendency to follow him around the home. With regards to diet she had been given wet food mostly Friskies and Nine lives. Her litterbox had been uncovered and the litter they had used had been clumping. Additionally she has a scratching post that she uses that is made out of carpet. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE: Upon entering the office Miles did not seem to very happy. Inside his carrier he was growling. When the counselor approached the scan him for a microchip he began to hiss and show his teeth. The counselor attempted to allow him to sniff her hand but he continued to growl, and hiss. The counselor was unable to collar him and he was photographed while he was still in his carrier. The counselor offered him food which he seemed interested in (reachign out his head to sniff) but he then continued to hiss and show his teeth.

As per previous owner, Miles is likely to keep her distance around strangers. She needs some time to get acclimated at which point she will allow the person to approach and pet her. She has never spent time around children so her behavior around them remains unknown. However she had shared her home with another cat and had gotten along very well with the cat. She had been an indoor cat and thusly has not had any interactions with dogs. Reaction to assessor: Miles hisses and growls at the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Miles hisses and growls at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Miles becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Miles growls, starts to yowl and swats at the assessor. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Miles is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. She may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
