WIND – A1099637 8M GRAY DSH F
STRAY INTAKE: 12/13/2016
Initial Exam (12/14/16)
age: approximately 6 months
ear, eyes and nose is clear
ear mites negative
tense and nervous during exam
Wind is a ringworm suspect
Wind was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Wind keeps her body lowered in her litter box and watches the assessor with wide eyes.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Wind’s eyes widen, his ears tilt forward and he focuses on the assessor’s movements.
Reaction to cage door opening: Wind remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Wind’s ears flatten and she sinks lower in her litter box when the assessor extends her hand out. Her body is tense/ stiff when pet, she keeps her tail at her side and allows rubs on her head with a slow, gentle approach. She seems uncomfortable and isn’t confident enough to come forward.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Wind tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
Lying flatly in box, pressed against bottom. Stays immobile when I open cage door and approach, allows me to rub head, but ears flatten and presses harder down against bottom of box. Sprayed some Feliway, gave fresh wet food and left some treats. Initial med exam pending.
Curled up at back of kennel, as flat as she can get. Alert, makes some eye contact when I open cage and slowly approach. Hesitant about being touched, able to touch body, but backed out of it. Gave some treats and a catnip toy, sprayed a little Feliway.
01/19/17 (LIC notes)
Focuses on me with his ears bent sideways and flat like a helicopter. She was hesitant of contact and will lift her paw to prepare to swipe when I extended my hand towards her. Will lip lick and blink when spoken to softly, but will lift her paw even more if I get closer to her. Left alone for now, very fearful and unsure.
