11/25/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/25/16 09:57 Ozzie A1097813 is a male orange tabby & white DSH feline who was found in a crate with food, water & toys at the finder’s job a little while ago in the Bronx. They aren’t willing/able to keep him and didn’t handle Ozzie as he was in his crate. During intake Ozzie allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. Ozzie solicited attention/affection and rubbed his face/body along my hands and kennel bars. He didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease.

11/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Ozzie looks neutral, standing on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Ozzie engages the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Ozzie slowly leans into the assessor’s hand, but becomes agitated with the touch and began to growl and hiss. He seems conflicted and continues to solicit attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Ozzie solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to growl and hiss at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Ozzie becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
