Tobbi A1102998 – 8 yr. spayed brown tabby, OS:
Tobbi is 8 year old Spayed Brown Tabby Domestic SH mix; she came to her owner’s home as stray. She was surrendered due to her showing behavior concerns towards the family’s child. Tobbi has no known health issues or injures and is up to date with her Rabies vaccine.
Around strangers Tobbi is shy and will hiss or hide if an individual tries to approach. Tobbi has lived with a 2 year old child, when the child comes near Tobbi or tries to pull her tail she hisses and swats at the child but did not draw blood.
Tobbi is slightly tense while being brushed however she allows the individual to brush her. Tobbi does struggle whenever someone tries to hold her, but goes into the carrier with ease. Tobbi likes to scratch on the furniture and carpet.

During intake Tobbi was very relaxed she allowed the counselor to hold her and give her soft pets of her head. The counselor was able to collar and take a photo with no issue.
Tense and wary, crouching in litter box at back of cage, hisses occasionally. When I offer some chicken she slowly comes forward, but won’t take from my hand or come all the way to the front. Not ready for much interaction yet, needs some time. Sprayed Feliway.
Rolling around playfully when I enter the room, calm and friendly. Keeps rolling around when I open the cage door, social, calm, playful. Lets me pet her head and rub her belly. Keeps rolling around, playing. Lets me pick up and hold. Stays social and friendly when I return to cage. Gave her some catnip and she, yes, rolled around playfully in it. Seems to like the feather-on-a-pipecleaner toy I offer, bats it around a little bit. Removed “use caution” sticker. Doing great!
