05/02/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/02/17 18:27 The recent caretaker of Nina only had her for three weeks so she never spent time around strangers except for when they met and she was friendly with her. She has not spent time around children and didn’t really play with her caretaker either. While in her care, Nina did not spend time around dogs or cats and has not bitten another animal or human. Nina is relaxed during car rides. Her caretaker did not bath her, trim her nails, or brush her so it’s unknown how she would react. She said Nina is relaxed when she picks her up and when placed into the carrier. She isn’t bothered when awoken from her slumber. Nina is friendly, affectionate, mellow, and quiet. She has a medium activity level and enjoys playing with balls. When her caretaker is home, Nina follows her around and is kept indoors only. She sleeps on a blanket and is litterbox trained. She takes her morning scratch/stretch to the door. She’s been eating Fancy Feast wet food and loves chicken feet. On intake, Nina had a soft body and allowed counselor to take her out of the carrier. She allowed collaring and stayed still for pictures. She walked into the new carrier once presented. Her pupils were wide.

She has a medium activity level MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/04/17- Observed Behavior – initially sniffed fingers and allowed petting but reacted poorly to touching/handling ENRICHMENT NOTES: 5/3/17- In feral den, peeking out, extremely stiff posture, eyes dilated. Started hissing, growling, and lip licking on approach. Left alone for now. 5/4/17- In feral den initially, peeking out, eyes dilated, stiff posture. Started hissing and grumbling on approach and retreated further into den. Later, came out of den and explored cage, still very tense. Hissed on approach, but stepped forward to sniff assess-a-hand and treats. Hissed and repeatedly swatted assess-a-hand when attempted touch. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Nina looks neutral, crouched position on her cage bedding. Reaction to cage door opening: Nina becomes alert with eyes wide open slowly retreating to her hidey box. Reaction to touch: Nina sniffs the assessor’s hand then allowed a brief touch on the head, but began to hiss and pat the hand to stop. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Nina 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 an experienced, adult only home.
