08/23/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/23/17 18:27 Basic Information: Zoey is a spayed brown tabby cat roughly 2 years old that was given to the owner by a coworker, friend. The new place the owner is moving to doesn’t allow pets and she cannot keep her. The last time Zoe went to the vet was around 2 months old but has no known health conditions. Socialization: Zoey is shy for a few minutes around strangers and may warm up after some time. She spent time in a home with children 5 years old and up and was fearful around them. She plays gentle with children and adults. Behavior: Zoey may meow a little in the car when it’s moving. Zoey has never had a bath or gotten her nails trimmed. She struggled getting into the carriers and tries to move out of your hands. For a New Family to Know: Zoey is mellow and shy with a medium activity level. She has only been kept indoor and eats both wet and dry food. She uses and uncovered litter box with crystal litter. She also enjoys scratching on her carpet platform they had for her in the living. Behavior During Intake: I opened the carrier and instantly she hissed and swatted at me but didn’t break skin. I was unable to get her out of the carrier and throughout the intake she had very elongated meows and growls inside of the carrier. I was unable to reach her to collar her without her trying to swat at my hand.

Reaction to touch: Zoey hisses, her ears bend flat and she displays distance increasing behaviors when approached. She seems very stressed and currently doesn’t allow any contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Zoey has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her 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: Placement with a New Hope partner – Zoey is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling.She may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
