08/28/16 17:34 Basics Oscar is a ten month old cat who lived with his previous owner for nine months. He was surrendered due to owner allergies. Socialization Oscar was reported to be friendly and outgoing around strangers. He loves to play with anyone, especially with noisy toys. He has never been around children. He briefly stayed with two other adult cats. Owner did not believe there were any behavior issues, but she was not there to witness so cannot say for sure. Oscar has not been around any other animals. Behavior Oscar will sometimes scratch furniture, but he has never lived in a home where scratching posts were an option for him. He is a little nervous in a car, and will toss and turn in his carrier. He has been receiving baths since he was a kitten and will tolerate them if they are warm and fast. He has never had his nails trimmed or been brushed. Oscar sometimes allows to be picked up and held but will struggle after several minutes. He will struggle when being put in a carrier, and previous owner said he will sometimes scratch. He has not bitten or scratched in the past ten days. For a New Family to Know Oscar was described as friendly, playful, and talkative. He has a very high activity level and loves to follow his owner around the house. He will play with any toy, but especially loves ones that make noise. He has been mostly indoors, but his previous owner would occassionaly take him on leashed walks or let him off leash in the park and chase him. He likes to sleep on the bed or in the bathtub. He uses a covered litterbox with clumping litter. At the ACC Oscar rubbed against counselor when he came out of his carrier. He allowed for collaring and listened when counselor asked him to sit for pictures. He began to growl when counselor tried to put him back in carrier. He was put back in using safety gloves which he scratched and bit. Once inside the carrier, he meowed a bit and then would once again rub against counselor’s hands.

08/31/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Oscar’s former owner reported he is friendly and outgoing around strangers. He loves to play with anyone, especially with noisy toys. He has never been around children. He briefly stayed with two other adult cats and did not believe there were any behavior issues. Also, described as friendly, playful, and talkative with a very high activity level. Reaction to assessor: Oscar looks neutral, sitting upright by the front soliciting attention when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Oscar stands at the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, alert with eyes wandering. Reaction to touch: Oscar accepts the stroke, but becomes agitated with the touch then began to gentle nip, box, and hiss at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: Experience / no child Oscar is social and affectionate, but appears to be easily overstimulated and plays roughly. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Oscar becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
