Intake condition GERIATRIC Intake Date 03/07/2017, From NY 11225, DueOut Date 03/10/2017,
Tiggie is an 11 year old female DSH that has not current or previous health issues. Around strangers, she is nervous for a few minutes but onces she warms up she plays gently. She has never been around children or other animals so behavior is unknown. Tiggie is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box with clumping litter in the home. She was fed both wet and dry food (brands not given). Tiggie does not have a bite history.
Behavior during intake: Tiggie had a stiff body and was trying to hide. Counselor was able to scan for a mc, collar and take a picture without any issues.
Scared, hiding in box, startles easily. Sweet, social, cute older girl, will need time to adjust. Lost her guardian, who passed away a few weeks ago, and is dealing with a tremendous amount of change in a short period of time. When I speak softly to her from outside the kennel she slow blinks. Gave some tuna and Temptations and a pinch of catnip-silver vine. Sprayed Feliway.
Somewhat more at ease today, resting quietly on blanket but wide-eyed and startles a little with the frequent loud and hasty movements in the hallway. Appreciative of petting, leans chin in for more rubs. This environment is very stressful for her, it may be hard for her to really warm up a lot here. She’s a sweet, social 11yo housecat that struggles with change, especially the dramatic changes she’s enduring of late. Perhaps New Hope or Foster can work on placement for her; she’d likely do much better in a (foster) home. Not eating much on her own, will eat socially.
