06/30/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/30/17 16:07 Tom is a 2 year old male black cat who was surrendered by his owner due to too many animals in the home. The owner stated that he has had Tom since he was a kitten and he has no known medical problems. Owner stated that when around strangers Tom is fearful and mostly hides in the bedroom. Tom has not spent time around children or dogs so it is unknown how he will react. Tom has spent time around other cats and he is relaxed and affectionate. When playing with other cats he is gentle. On the way to the ACC in the car Tom was meowing but stayed in the carrier. He has never been bathed nor had his nails trimmed so it is unknown how he will react. Tom isn’t bothered when he is held. Owner described Tom as not socialable & fearful but Tom likes to play with string and balls. Tom was given wet and dry food. He is very much litter box trained and never has accidents. He is used to an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. He has been kept indoors only. Tom scratches on a scratching post made out of carpet.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults and children ages 2 and up Behavior toward strangers: Fearful and mostly hides in the bedroom Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Spent time around other cats and was relaxed and affectionate Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Not social & fearful Other notes: He doesn’t mind being held MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: scared head down. no hissing etc EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Tom was eating his dry food near the front of the cage. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tom pauses, then lip licks and retreats into his cubby with his tail tucked under his body. Reaction to cage door opening: Tom is alert. Reaction to touch: Tom’s eyes widen, he tenses up and slowly inches away when the assessor extends his hand out. He flinches slightly when touched, lip licks and tolerates slow pets along his body. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Tom tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
