***SAFE 03/17/16*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY NADINE IS A 10 MONTH OLD STRAY KITTEN WHOSE FINDER KEPT HER FOR 1 WEEK BEFORE BRINGING HER TO THE ACC! NADINE was found as a stray and lived for about a week in a home. She got along great with the finder’s 4 other cats and also the young children in the home. She played gently with them all. Sadly, this person said they had one open litterbox and NADINE did not use it. She had soiled outside the box, so for that reason, she is now sitting on tonight’s list. NADINE was a friendly, relaxed cat upon intake but as soon as she realized this was not the place to be, her nervousness and fear took hold so the assessor gave her and EXPNOCHILD rating. (mind you, she was ok with kids in the home) NADINE is probably confused and needs to have a chance to have her own home, her own litterbox, and someone with patience and love if she takes time to learn to use the box. Most likely there are very good reasons she missed using that box as a newcomer in a 4 cat household with only ONE place to go. But it’s too late to argue over that. NADINE NEEDS YOU NOW. CONTACT A RESCUE TO GIVE THIS KITTEN A DEATH ROW PARDON AND A HAPPY ENDING TO HER STORY!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Nadine was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. The finder stated they kept her in their home for about a week. She was around their three cats and she was relaxed around them and engaged in gentle play. She was also relaxed and gentle with the kids in the home. Nadine was calm and had a loose body upon intake. She allowed the counselors to handle her and was friendly during her initial medical exam. Reaction to Assessor: Nadine lies flat in her litter box and looks at the assessor with squinted eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Nadine continues to look at the assessor and feint sleeps. Reaction to cage door opening: Nadine remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Nadine ears tilt sideways, but she sniffs the assessor’s hand. She allows gentle petting and remains immobile, but starts to low growl during the interaction. Nadine’s finder reports she has been eliminating outside the litter box during her short stay in their home. She has been urinating on their furniture, but we are unaware if any modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Please note that the living situation may have contributed to the behavior seen (The finder only had one large open litter box in the home where there was a total of 4 cats in the home). 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 Nadine be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litter box. Placement Determination: Experience Nadine tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. 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. Due to her stress level in the shelter, any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
