***SAFE 10/27/16***TWILIGHT TIME: CREAMSICLE GAL WITH GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING NEEDS YOU! Twilight is an eight year old friendly feline who desperately needs a furever friend. She lived with her former family since kittenhood when she was adopted at the ASPCA. Twilight is used to being around children and even lived with a dog (who was also recently dumped at the shelter). According to her former owner, Twilight began to urinate around the house recently. It could be a household change or medical condition. We won’t know since her former peeps could not be bothered to take her to the vet to address the issue. Just sounds like the family could not be bothered period–at all with taking care of their pets.. Twilight received an awesome pawesome “average” behavior rating at the shelter–tolerant of all petting and handling. She is a good, low maintenance girl who needs her rescue angel tonight. Please be that special purrson by offering to foster or adopt this sweet creamsicle.. Email our help desk for assistance–[email protected] Twilight only has tonight. We are her only hope. Don’t let this sweetheart down!!!

Previous owners adopted her from the ASPCA when she was a kitten. Socialization Previous owners claimed that Twilight would often hiss at strangers. Twilight lived with a couple and their seven and three month old daughters. Twilight never interacted with the infant. Twilight would hide underneath furniture and swipe at the seven year old when she walked by. Twilight lived with a small dog until the dog was also surrendered. The dog would often try to mount Twilight, which Twilight would respond to by hissing and swiping. Behavior Previous owner states that Twilight recently began urinating outside of the litterbox a few times per week. She also stated that Twilight will sometimes scratch her daughter after pouncing out from a hidden location. Twilight will allow people to hold her and is not difficult to put into a carrier.

10/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Twilight’s previous owner reports she would often hiss at strangers. She has lived with children and although she doesn’t interact with the infant in the home, she sometimes would swipe at the 7 year old whenever she walks by. She has also lived with a small dog that would often try to mount her, so Twilight would respond by hissing and swiping. The owner reports she has a medium-high activity level. Although Twilight’s owner reports Twilight would hiss at strangers, our counselor reports she rubbed against their hand as soon as her carrier door was opened during intake. She blinked at the counselor several times and would purr as the counselor pet her all over her body. She allowed the counselor to conduct all handling throughout the intake process, but displayed distance-increasing behaviors during her initial medical exam. We are unsure if her reaction during her medical exam was elicited due to the nature of handling for the procedure. Reaction to assessor: Twilight was inside a den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Twilight comes out of her den and perches on top of it, sniffing around. She meows softly afterwards and pokes her head forward, curious. Reaction to cage door opening: Twilight remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Twilight head-butts the assessor and leans in for petting. She begins to purr and seems to appreciate attention. Reaction to being picked up: Twilight remains calm and continues to purr when held. Twilight’s previous owner reports she had recently began urinating outside of her litter box a few times per week. We are unaware if any modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. Behavior Determination: Average Twilight interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
