07/02/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/02/17 15:05 Tyler is a seven year old unaltered brown tabby male cat who the owner has had for seven years. She does not remember how long she has had Tyler for. She is not aware of any injuries or health problems that he may have. Around strangers, Tyler is shy and avoids contact with them since the owner does not have company over often. He is use to only seeing the owner. He has not lived with any dogs or children. Tyler has lived with 6 other cats and was relaxed around each other. Owner states they do swat at times to each other but never have bitten each other as far as she knows. Tyler has not bitten a person or another animal before. According to owner, Tyler may have litter box issues. Tyler and the other 6 cats share two litter boxes and she often finds pee and poop outside the box a few times a month. She does not know exactly which cat is having the accidents. Tyler has never ridden in a car before. She has tried to bathe them before and he was afraid and struggled a lot. She has never trimmed his nails or brushed him out. He tends to like a bit of handling. He was never placed in a carrier. Tyler is described as a shy, independent, and mellow cat with a medium activity level. His favorite thing to do is walk around the house and sleep. He rarely seeks attention when the owner arrives home. He does not have any toys and is kept indoors only. Tyler sleeps in a room with the 6 other cats. He was fed Alley Cats dry food morning and night. He may be having litter box accidents but the owner is unsure due to having 7 cats with only 2 litter boxes. She states she has seen the poop or pee out of the box and usually just cleans it. Both litter boxes were hooded and she used clumping clay litter. Tyler was allowed to scratch a wooden threshold in the kitchen and was not given a scratching post.
