Tinkerbell A1097195 – 3 yr. spayed brown tabby/white, Os,
The owner reports that the cat started to sneeze and throw up a couple days ago.
Tinkerbell walked out of the carrier on her own and nuzzled the couneslor’s hand and allowed to be picked up. Tinkerbell seeked attention by rubbing her head on the kennel door and meowing. Her previous home profile states:
Tinkerbell is a three year old brown tabby and white spayed domestic shorthair. She was surrendered due to allergies of a family member. She was with her owner since she was a kitten and was given to owner by a family friend.
Tinkerbell has lived with five adults and two infants’ age 7 months. She is described as shy around strangers and takes a few minutes to warm up to new people, once she is comfortable she will engage in gentle play. Tinkerbell was kept separate from the infants due to allergies but owner stated she spent time with a twelve year old child. She would engage in gentle play with the child and was tolerant; owner stated if her tail was pulled she would not react aggressively towards the child. She has not been around cats or dogs.
Tinkerbell is a quiet cat and likes to stay hidden in the home. Tinkerbell enjoys being bathed and groomed, owner stated she was taken to a professional groomer and was said to have great behavior. She likes to be held and does not mind when she is placed in a carrier. Tinkerbell has been kept only indoors. She is litterbox trained and uses an open litterbox and any litter. Tinkerbell had a rough rope scratch
BEHAVIOR FROM 11/21:
Tinkerbell’s previous owner reports she has lived with five adults and two children. She is shy around strangers and takes a few minutes to warm up to them, but once she is comfortable she will engage in gentle play. She engaged in gentle play with children and was tolerant around them, even when they pulled her tail, she would not react aggressively toward them. She was described as a quiet cat and likes to stay hidden at home. She was taken to a professional groomer and they reports she has great behavior. She likes to be held and does not mind being placed in a carrier.
Reaction to assessor: Tinkerbell was lying down, blinking softly and making eye contact with the assessor.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Tinkerbell places her head down to rest and stretches her paw.
Reaction to cage door opening: Tinkerbell’s tail waves from side to side as she greets by the opening.
Reaction to touch: Tinkerbell sniffs the assessor’s hand and head-butts afterwards. She leans in for petting and begins to purr, but focuses on things going around in her surroundings.
Reaction to pick up: Tinkerbell remains calm, but wiggles to be placed back down. She lip licks when placed back in her kennel and crouches over, but will head-butt gently when coaxed.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Tinkerbell appreciates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
