MOOZIE – A1079502
Safe - 7-15-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Connecticut Cat Connection Please honor your pledges: http://ctcatconnection.org/
*** SAFE 07/15/16 *** SECOND CHANCE FOR THIS CREAMSICLE!! MAKE IT COUNT!! MOOZIE is just a year old, and such a handsome creamsicle! This baby is being given a bad rap by his previous owners, who dumped him off at the shelter because he was supposedly aggressive with the children in the home, and he was inappropriately eliminating outside the litter box. It is clearly stated in Moozie’s notes that no corrective action was taken. Meaning this cat was not taken to a vet to eliminate medical causes for his potty troubles, he has not been neutered. Did these owners ever stop to think that perhaps the children were playing too roughly or being flat out mean to Moozie? Now, because of the ignorance of these negligent people this cat is going to lose his life if no one steps up for him before NOON TOMORROW. Moozie aced his assessment, he offered head-butts and leaned in for petting, purred, and solicited attention. Quite a difference from the cat described by the previous owners! He has been rated EXPNOCHILD as a precaution. Please step up and give this handsome baby a second chance at life. He’s just a baby, and has clearly not experienced a loving home. Offer to FOSTER/ADOPT him RIGHT NOW! Moozie won’t leave the shelter alive without you. Please hurry!

07/06/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Moozie’s previous owner reports he has lived with two children and is aggressive towards them, hissing and swatting when they pass. The owner also reports that one of the children pulls on Moozie’s tail. The aggression may have been a reaction to the tail pulling. The owner also reports when he plays, he can be rough. He was described as a mellow cat with a very high activity level. He follows the owner around at home. Reaction to assessor: Moozie was calm, relaxed, and friendly by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Moozie leans on his side and rubs his cheeks against the bedding. Reaction to cage door opening: Moozie remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Moozie head-butts, leans in for petting, and begins to purr. When pet a little roughly, he gently nips the assessor’s hand, but continues to head-butt and solicit attention. He was very affectionate throughout the interaction and doesn’t nip when I pet him gently. Reaction to pick up: Moozie remains calm and purrs when held. Moozie’s previous owner reports he is litter box trained, but has had rare accidents between 1-6 months. The owner believes these accidents occurred when the children were at home. Moozie’s living situation may have contributed to the behavior seen because he appeared uncomfortable with the chidlren. We are unaware if any modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior and 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 Moozie be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house 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). Placement Determination: Experienced, No Children Moozie interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although he is displaying behaviors for cat parents with an average amount of experience, due to the information provided by the previous owner, we feel that this cat will do best in a home without children.
