Timmy is a 6 month old altered male White and black DSH mix; he came to his home from ACC and was with his family for 2 months before he was surrendered for due to his health issues. Timmy has an anal prolapse that reoccurs due to the other cat being territorial over the litter box. All of Timmy’s Paws are declawed. He has no other known health issues or injures. He is up to date with his rabies vaccine.
Around stranger Timmy is shy at first but will allow the individual to pet him and hold him. He has lived in a home with a 7 and 12 year old child, and around the children Timmy is gentle and affectionate. Timmy has also lived with a female cat who is his litter mate, and is relaxed and but Timmy is fearful of the other cat due to her being territorial and playing somewhat rough, but Timmy has no bite history.
During car rides Timmy meows and cries until the car stops moving. He does have litter box accidents and often poops outside of the Litter-box a few times a week. Timmy has been to a vet and the doctor stated it was mostly likely due to behavior reasons.
Timmy loves to be brushed and held, but will struggle during a bath, but once inside he like to lie down in the sink or tub. He also will try to flee when he is placed in the carrier. He was described as affectionate, Friendly, and mellow with a medium activity level. Timmy likes to play with balls and string. Timmy was litter-box trained with an uncovered and hooded box with clumping litter.
Upon intake Timmy was timid and tried to flee once out of the carrier the counselor was able to hold and collar.
Timmy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Cage Condition: Cage rearranged
Reaction to assessor: Timmy was relaxed and playful, bouncing around at the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Timmy pauses and slowly moves with her tail lowered.
Reaction to cage door opening: Timmy moves away.
Reaction to touch: Timmy is a little skittish and moves away when the assessor extends his hand out. He squints when touched, looks around and is a little wary of his surroundings. He slowly warms up when rubbed and approaches the front with his tail erect.
Reaction to being picked up: Timmy was a little tense when picked up but allowed all handling.
ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/26/17
Nervous but easy to handle kittens. Timmy is a little bolder than Tiny. Calm and quiet when held. Seem to be eating well and using box appropriately. Both showed interest in toys, but Timmy was the most playful.
More active and playful than sister teeny Tiny. A little nervous, but easy to handle. No problem picking up and holding. Really cool markings. Absolutely ridiculous and adorable.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Playing and acting normal
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Agenda-driven
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Easy Going
_x_ Kitten socialization- Timmy is a young cat who may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. He may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes he has potential to warm up to people. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people. Please speak to an adoption counselor to learn more about socialization techniques.
_x_ Experienced cat parent- Timmy may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Check for rectal prolapse.
S/O: BARH. Active, playful. Eating well.
