05/10/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/10/17 17:05 Stripy is a 7 year old domestic shorthair; she was adopted from the ACC 7 years ago and is surrendering her due to allergies and developing asthma from the allergies. She has no injuries or health problems that the owner is aware of. Around strangers, Stripy will go to another room and not come out until the strangers leave. It takes a while for Stripy to get use to strangers, but once she does, Stripy can be seen right in the middle of the room, soaking up attention. She has lived with young toddlers, under 10 months, and she is relaxed around them. She plays very gently with adults and children. She has not lived with other cat or dogs so her behavior living with them is unknown. She has not bitten another animal or person. Her owner is not aware of any behavioral issues except that she tends to go to other rooms when there are strangers in her home. During car rides, she tends to be fearful and meow the whole time. The owner is not aware of any litterbox issues in the 7 years she has had Stripy. She once tried to giver her a bath and trim her nails but Stripy struggled too much and the owner gave up. Her also struggles while you brush her out but settles after awhile. She loves to be picked up and held only from people she is comfortable with. She is not bothered being woken up from her sleep. Stripy is a shy but friendly cat who takes time to get to know people.Her activity level is high and loves to play with any toys her owners provide, her favorite being feathered wands. She is often running around her home from room to room. She will patiently wait by the window until she sees her owner come home and then run to greet her at the door and follow her around. Her favorite place to nap is behind a living room chair near the window she watched her owner come home. She was fed Science Diet and just had a bowl out all day. She is use to using a hooded litterbox with clumping clay. She was given a vertical scrtching post made of caroet and rough rope.

05/21/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults and children Behavior toward strangers: Stripy is initially timid around strangers and will retreat into another room. It takes a while for Stripy to get use to strangers, but once she does, Stripy can be seen right in the middle of the room, soaking up attention Behavior toward children: Stripy is relaxed around children and plays with them gently Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: Stripy has not bitten another person or animal Litter box training: Stripy has had no known litter box accidents in the 7 years she lived with the previous owner. She used a hooded litter box with clumping litter. Energy level/descriptors: Stripy’s activity level is high and loves to play with any toys her owners provide, her favorite being feathered wands. She is often running around her home from room to room. She will patiently wait by the window until she sees her owner come home and then run to greet her at the door and follow her around. Her favorite place to nap is behind a living room chair near the window she watched her owner come home. Other notes: Stripy was given a vertical scratching post made of rough rope in her previous home MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Initially able to handle but cat became progressively more stressed, hissing and resisting handling, striking out. ENRICHMENT NOTES: Curious and pretty vocal. Meowing periodically throughout interaction. Sniffs hand and allows petting. Slow movements, tail sways back and forth. Leans in for rubs, appreciates slow gentle pets. Slow approach is key. She can get uncomfortable with sudden movements or when moving objects around her. When she gets upset she’ll hiss and tense up, but didn’t display any further reaction. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Stripy is seated at the front of the kennel as the assessor approaches, body relaxed and eyes soft Reaction when softly spoken to: Stripy stands up and vocalizes softly when spoken to, tail raised Reaction to cage door opening: Stripy remains in front of the kennel with a raised tail as the cage door opens Reaction to touch: Stripy hisses as the assessor’s hand moves towards her. She leans into petting with along her head and body with her tail raised and flicking back and forth. She then turns her head around and hisses with continued petting, swatting the assessor’s hand.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Independent, Bold POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Pet-induced aggression Initially Stripy solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she becomes tense and begins to hiss at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Stripy becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parent Stripy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. The behavior team recommends that Stripy goes to a home with experienced cat parents.
