11/27/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/27/16 10:53 Snickers can be fearful towards strangers and usually hides when children are present but will play gently with all humans. He has lived with another cat and they would play rough, but would only fight if it was over food. Snickers has spent time around another dog but is fearful of them and won’t play. He has never bitten or scratched another animal or human but will swat at strangers and for the most part is antisocial. His previous owners never tried giving him a bath, trimming his nails, or brushing his fur so it is unknown how he’d react to such situations. Snickers isn’t bothered when people try to hold him and his previous owners describe him as a hyper yet fearful cat. He enjoys balls and has been kept indoors. He likes going potty in his hooded litter box full of clumping litter and has never had any accidents outside the litter box. Snickers enjoys dry food (preferably Meow Mix) and likes Meow brand treats. He didn’t have a scratching post in his previous owners house so he would tend to scratch at the couch.

11/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owners, Snickers is fearful around strangers and usually hides when children are present but will play gently with all adults. He plays gentle with people and doesn’t mind being picked up or held. Snickers lived with another cat and got along well with him until they were fed then they fought. They played rough together and would be fearful when around other dogs. He’s been kept indoors only, was litter box trained and would occasionally scratch at the couch. Reaction to assessor: Snickers was lying down at the back of the kennel with his head turned towards the wall avoiding eye contact. Reaction when softly spoken to: Snickers makes eye contact, has wide eyes focused on all movements and doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Snickers remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Snickers has a tense body and flinches when the assessor tries to pet him. He lip licks throughout the interaction, allows petting with a very slow approach and seems wary of his surroundings. After a couple soft pets he turns his body away and tries to avoid all contact. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Snickers tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
