03/11/17 17:56 Basic Info Ruby is a 1 1/2 year old spayed female DSH. She was given to the owner as a gift from a friend and was under his care for a year. Unfortunately, she no longer can be with her family because of a child’s conflict with asthma. She is said to not have any injuries or health problems. She hasn’t been seen by a vet in about a year. Socialization Around strangers, Ruby tends to be hiss and swat. She has lived with a six year old girl and a ten month old girl whom she was tolerable with. She played gently with her previous owners which said took a week initially to gain trust. However, she does play rough and has bit once during play. Previous owner was playing with a mouse and she pounced on his hand to get the toy and bit his hand(which broke skin and drew blood) and toy six months prior. Ruby has not lived with cats or dogs. She has never played or interacted with cats or dogs. Behavior Ruby often scratches the furniture and new people. In the car on her way to our care center, she was described to us as meowing/crying the whole ride. When given a bath or undergo a nail trim, she tends to struggle.

EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Ruby comes forward and starts grumbling when the assessor approaches. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ruby seems conflicted and continues to grumble then gently rubs her cheeks up against the kennel door. Reaction to cage door opening: Ruby arches her back then hisses. Reaction to touch: Ruby doesn’t seem fully comfortable being touched and will tuck/ slink away when the assessor attempts to make contact. She seems to like being pet on her terms when she leans her head in for attention. Her body feels a bit tense and she easily becomes upset with any sudden movement. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Affectionate RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Ruby tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
