Intake condition EXAM REQ Intake Date 03/11/2017, From NY 11374, DueOut Date 03/18/2017,
Scott was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder kept her overnight and reported she bit and scratched her right hand after they picked Scott up and placed her on their lap. She did not allow handling during intake.
Observed Behavior – Displays distance-increasing behaviors and attempts to avoid handling
Sleeping, but wakes from sound of cage door opening and flinches. Twitches when touched and starts to grumble. Revisited later in the day and she approached the front when spoken to with her tail up, quivering and swaying. She sniffs my hand when offered, but shifts away when petting was attempted. After closing the cage door, she approaches the front and looks around at her surroundings.
Calm and relaxed. Perked up after smelling treats and would come to the front. Definitely seemed more relaxed today and willing to interact. Head-butts as I offer a treat and allows petting all over. Will sometimes ignore the treat to nudge me for rubs, purring. Very sweet, will knead when left alone.
Meows softly as I walked by her kennel. Sniffs through bars then brushes her body against the kennel door. Leans in for attention, body perks up, tail rises. Allows petting and attention all over. Gives soft headbutts when rubbed on head.
At the front of the kennel waiting to interact. Meows softly when I started petting her. Brushes her cheeks against my hand, tail rises when rubbed on her back. Enjoyed her catnip toy, bounced around playing with the toy mouse. Much more relaxed, doing great!
Currently in heat. Her tail is whipped to the side and she is pedaling her back feet, chirping upon approach. She continues to chirp when spoken to and is constantly rubbing against her bedding, cage wall, and me. She is a total love bug right now, but her hormones may have something to do with that. Allows all petting and handling. Very silly girl.

Please be advised that Scott seems to be in heat at the time of assessment, and the behavior presented at the time of evaluation may differ when the heat cycle is complete due to a change in hormonal balance.
– Experienced cat parent – Scott interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although she is displaying behavior appropriate for beginner cat parents, due to an incident with the finder, we recommend Scott goes to a home with experienced cat parents.
