SAFE 8/3/16 RETURN—– A volunteer writes: I found Thea sitting front and center in her kennel, and when I said hello, she began to dance and do the dolphin dive, rubbing up against the door in hopes of enticing me to pet her. So I did. She is just a lovely grey tabby with a pretty white neck, soft and sweet and just waiting for someone’s lap to sit in.

Reaction to touch: Thea sniffs the assessor’s hand and lightly brushes up for attention. She lightly head butts and allows petting all over her body.
Reaction to being picked up: Thea was calm, relaxed and had a soft body when held.
Thea previous owner reports that Thea was eliminating outside of the litter box. The previous owners did not try any modification steps to try and address this behavior. Please note as well that Thea’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 Thea be provided with numerous litterboxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litterbox.
Behavior Determination: Average

Thea is a 2 year old spayed female DSH that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner has had Thea for over a month. Thea was adopted from BACC.
According to the owner Thea has not been around strangers since being adopted. Owner had her young niece in the home one time and stated that Thea hid under the couch the whole time. While in the care of the owner, Thea was not around other cats or dogs therefore behavior is not known. Thea has not bit another animal or person while in the car of previous owner.
Owner has never tried to bathe Thea or trim her nails so she is not sure how Thea would react to those grooming agents. Thea is friendly when having her coat brushed, being picked up/held and being disturbed while she is sleeping. Owner stated that Thea is tolerant of being put in a carrier.
For a New Family to Know:
Thea is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, nervous when there is a loud noise, independent and talkative with a high activity level. When in the home, Thea would stay in her favorite spot. Owner stated her favorite thing about Thea is how loveable and snuggly she is. Thea’s favorite activities are playing with her ball and running around the house. Thea was an indoors only cat that is not litter box trained. She urinate on owners couch daily even after she switched litter box locations and litter around. She would also sometimes defecate on the couch or outside of the litter box on a daily basis. Owner had a hooder litter box with clumping litter in the home. Thea has a scratching post made of tough rope in the home that she liked to use. When it comes to toys, she loves to play with balls with bells on them. Owner fed Thea both wet and dry food but did not remember the brand name. Owner feels that Thea would do well in any type of home that can help her overcome her litter box issues.
Behavior during intake: Thea began to hiss when I went to try to have her come out of the carrier. I was not able to put a collar on her. I was able to take a picture of her in the carrier.
