01/29/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/29/17 11:19 Basic Info: Precious A1102446 is a female black and white DSH feline who was found as a stray in the owner’s neighborhood 3 months ago & is being surrendered due to pet health. She hasn’t been seen by a veterinarian and currently hasn’t been eating for the past 2 days and vomiting blood. Socialization: Around strangers Precious is shy is several minutes. She hasn’t been around other animals or children but was gentle and relaxed with the adult in the home. Precious hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: Precious isn’t bothered by the following: being brushed, being in a car, being picked up/held (as long as she comes to you for it and it isn’t for too long) or with being placed into a carrier. She hasn’t had her nails trimmed, been bathed nor has she been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Precious is described as friendly, confident, playful (at times), mellow & quiet with a low activity level. When the owner is home she follows them around sometimes. She enjoys ball & mouse toys at times and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home. Precious eats wet Friskies 1-3x a day. She is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within. Precious doesn’t have a scratching post and it wasn’t noticed if she scratched on items in the home. Intake Behavior: Precious allowed minimal handling. She allowed to be scanned (-) (while growling). Due to her hissing, having a tense body and growling I was unable to collar her or take her pictures on the back drop. When Precious walked out of her carrier her body was hunched low and as I picked her up to place her into her kennel she tensed up and began growling and hissing; at no time did she attempt to bite and or swat.
