***SAFE 06/04/16 *** SOPHIE FINDS HERSELF RETURNED!! SOPHIE was adopted from the ACC and didn’t get along with the children in the household because she was scared of them…..Of course, the new family gave her 2, count em, 2 whole days to get used to a new environment……Honestly….So now SOPHIE faces the firing squad, because people had no patience. SOPHIE is doing great at the ACC! Interacting with the assessor, head butting, chirping and seeking attention! SOPHIE’S new home should be aware that children may need a slow introduction of more than 2 days! Or SOPHIE may prefer an all adult home! She’s only 7 months old and still has a lot of acclimating to do, if she gets the chance!! She’s already SPAYED and ready for that Purrfect Fit!! Apply to Foster or Adopt now!! Especially if you can give a cat more than 2 days!! If you need assistance, email [email protected]

05/22/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/22/16 12:41 Sophie is a 6 month old spayed DSH cat. She was origianlly found as a stray and brought to ACC after her finder cared for her for 1 week. The finder reported that she was friendly, affectionate, and playful. She ate Fancy Feast food and used a litterbox with clay litter. She allowed staff to handle her, including taking pictures and collaring her. Sophie was adopted from ACC and returned 2 days later due to child conflict. She seemed independent and didn’t seek attention or approach her family yet. She tolerated petting from calm adults. There were 8, 12, and 16 year old children in the home. The children would approach and pet her while she was lying down by herself on the floor. She would growl. They would continue to sit next to her and talk to her. She scratched two of the children on two different occasions like this, breaking skin once. Afterwards, she ran and hid under the bed. Sophie used an open litterbox with clumping litter and didn’t have accidents. She ate dry cat food. Sophie had a soft body and head butted me while I pet her, scanned her (+), and collared her.

05/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sophie was originally found as a stray and was cared for by the finder for a week. The finder reported she was friendly, affectionate, and playful. She was adopted and returned after two days due to a child conflict. She appeared independent in the home, and did not seek attention or approach from her new family within those two days. She tolerated petting from calm adults, but would growl when approached by the children. She scratched them while they spoke to her, and then hid underneath the bed. The enrichment facilitator has reported sweet and friendly behavior when she was returned to the shelter. She was monitored throughout her stay and would come to the front, chirping and soliciting attention. Reaction to assessor: Sophie was meowing by the front and was calm, relaxed, and friendly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sophie chirps and rubs against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Sophie remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Sophie head-butts, begins to purr, and leans her entire body against the assessor. She walks onto the assessor’s lap and is very affectionate, soliciting attention throughout the interaction. Reaction to being picked up: Sophie remains calm and purrs when held. Behavior Determination: Experience Sophie interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although she has displayed friendly and social behaviors in the care center, due to the information provided by the previous adopter, she may need time to acclimate to her new home. We recommend she go to a home with experienced cat parents and any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
