05/31/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/31/17 20:31 Basic Info: Petra A1113796 is a 10yr old spayed brown tabby DSH feline who was found as a stray kitten & is being surrendered due to the owner moving to where pets aren’t allowed. Petra’s last veterinarian visit was about 3yrs ago and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Petra will hide. She hasn’t been around other animals or children but was gentle, relaxed, playful & affectionate with the adults in the home. Petra hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: During car rides Petra will meow or be relaxed. She isn’t bothered by the following: being picked up/held (but if you pet/hold her too much long she’ll try to get away), brushed or with being placed into a carrier. Petra hasn’t been given a bath since she was a kitten, had her nails trimmed nor has she been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Petra is described as friendly, affectionate (at times), independent & quiet with a low-medium activity level. When the owner is home Petra follows them around sometimes. She used to enjoy ball & mouse toys but now enjoys lounging and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home, eats canned Friskies 1-3x a day (they stated Petra has what appears to be blood in her stool after she has dry food- she hasn’t been to a vet concerning this issue), is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within and used to have a scratching post that she didn’t always use and doesn’t scratch on items in the home. Intake Behavior: Petra had a soft body, eyes and allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned (-), collared & have her picture taken. Petra didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease.

Lowered head further when door opened, started lip licking, fur along back pilo erect. Hid face when pet, hissed when door closed. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Petra remains tense body, tucked limbs in her litter box during the approach. Reaction to cage door opening: Petra becomes alert with eyes wide open, lip licking in place. Reaction to touch: Head is pulled in, tail tucked, ears flat turned sideways during the touch, distance increases (head turned away from the assessor’s hand). Also, while attempting to close the cage door she spits at the assessor’s hand then retreats. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Petra 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.
