05/11/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/11/17 09:01 Basic Information. Mookie is a male 1yr old Domestic shorthair. He was found in the boiler room of a school and was kept in someone’s home for about 2 weeks. He came into ACC with a red, teary eye and was brought in because other household cats were a little irritated and uncomfortable around him. Socialization. Around strangers he is a bit fearful and shy for a few days but then becomes comfortable when he gets to know someone. He has been around adults and children of the ages 7 and 11. He is typically tolerant when it comes to children but will tend to scratch if someone is being too rough with him. He generally doesn’t like to play with people however he is very playful with other cats. It may seem like rough play but overall he loves to be around other cats and adults. Behavior. Mookie is a cat who loves being in same room as other people or cats and will begin to outcry and meow when left alone until someone comes to keep him company. On rare occasions he will occasionally have a litter box accident and pee outside of his litter box. When frightened Mookie would hide under a table or behind a couch, will only scratch people when they are a little too rough with him and will meow frequently during a car/train ride. He isn’t a cat who typically likes to be held and will try to wiggle out of your arms when being held or when someone is trying to trim his nails. However, when trying to wake him up or being put in a carrier, he is completely unbothered. He allowed all handling at ACC, he was affectionate and had a good appetite for treats. For a New Family to Know. Mookie is very mellow, quiet and independent cat who can be somewhat fearful and shy around new people but will eventually warm up to anyone after spending a few days with them. He has a somewhat high level of activity but mostly when he’s around other cats because he enjoys being around them and playing with them as much as possible. When you’re home with him he prefers to be in the same room as someone, he won’t seek much attention but mainly enjoys the company of being around others. He’s been kept mostly indoors and is fond of playing with string and an occasional laser pointer. He eats about 1/4 of a cup of Blue Buffalo dry food about 3x a day, he uses a hooded litter box and is infatuated with scratching posts that are made of rough carpet material.
