06/18/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/18/17 20:24 Basic info: Monroe is a 1 year old torbie male cat who was surrendered by his owner due to house soiling. The owner stated that she got the cat as a gift and she has had him since a kitten. Monroe has been to the vet and has no known medical issues. Socialization: Owner stated that when around strangers Monroe is shy for days. Monroe is fearful of the children in the home and will hide. The owner stated that Monroe does not play with children or adults. Monroe has not spent time around another cat but has spent time around a small dog and was relaxed and affectionate. Behavior: Owner stated that Monroe has litter box accident and scratches furniture in the home. On the way to the ACC in the car he was quiet. Owner stated that Monroe sprays and urinated outside of the litter and this is probably due to the fact he was not neutered. This has been going on for the past 6 months and he was never taken to the vet for these issues. Monroe has never had his nails trimmed or bathed so it is unknown how he will react. He is afraid of being held restrained or put in the carrier. For a new a family to know: Owner described Monroe as shy and fearful with a high activity level. When at home he rarely seeks attention. He likes to play with balls and stuffed toys. He has been kept indoors only and eats dry food. He has litterbox accidents daily. He is used to an uncovered litter box with clumping litter.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Shy for days Behavior toward children: Fearful and will hide Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Spent time around a dog and was relaxed and affectionate Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: No, she has litter box accidents daily for the past 6 months Energy level/descriptors: Shy and fearful with a high activity level Other notes: She is afraid of being held and placed in a carrier. She likes to play with balls and stuffed toys MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Allowed all handling without an issues ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/20/17 Lying in back of kennel with a low body, tail wrapped around her and ears tilted. Tolerates petting along head and body while closing eyes and remaining still, body tense. 06/20/17 Lying in litter box, body flattened all the way down. She looks ahead and is otherwise unresponsive when I offer my hand for her to smell. She tolerates petting along her head and body while tilting ears and looking around the room. Not interested in treats today. Not interested in further interaction at the moment. 06/22/17 Lying down completely flat in her litter box, barely visible. Tense, she sinks lower into her box when spoken to softly. She lip licks when touched but tolerates petting as long as you go slowly. She gets easily startled and might flee. She seems uncomfortable and definitely needs a slow approach. After a few minutes of petting/attention she tilts her head allows rubs on her cheeks. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Inappropriate elimination – Monroe’s previous owners report that she was eliminating (urinating and defecating) outside the litter box daily for the past 6 months. We are unaware of what, if any, modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, 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.
Fearful – Monroe has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her 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. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Monroe tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
