SAMIE – A1077135
Gone - 6-17-2016 Brooklyn
**GONE 06/17/16** SAMIE is a neutered 12-year-old gent who was taken to the ACC because, supposedly, his owner was sick….but read his medical notes. Samie is also in need of veterinary care from a competent vet, and one wonders how long it’s been since SAMIE has actually had the best of care. His matted coat suggests it’s been a while, and his bobbed tail may be congenital, but he really does need to have his severe constipation addressed. This handsome fellow likes to take a minute to get to know someone, but is reported as being good with people of all ages, and he earned a nice EXPERIENCE rating. Please make sure SAMIE gets a foster/adopter tonight, or this distinguished chap could have his constipation “cured” with a lethal injection while NYC eats lunch, tomorrow.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Around strangers Samie is fearful and will hiss but he is gentle with adults. He has spent time with children and is tolerant but doesn’t play. Samie has no experience with other cats or dogs. Samie has being has litter box issues for awhile. Samie is described as being quiet with a medium activity level. When in her previous home she would follow you around or play with her toy balls Reaction to assessor: Samie does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed When spoken quietly: Samie does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed Reaction to door cage opening: Samie remains soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: Samie allows petting and attention Try picking cat up: Samie is tolerant of this type of handling. Samie’s previous owner reports that he was defecating outside the litterbox, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Please note as well that Samie’s previous living situation may have contributed to the behavior seen. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Samie be provided with numerous litterboxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litterbox. Behavior Determination: Experience Samie was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention and tolerates all petting. Samie becomes uncomfortable when held. Due to Samie having litter box issues in the previous home he is displaying behavior appropriate for experienced cat parents.
