12/01/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/01/15 13:01 Basic information: Blinky is a 7 year old spayed, domestic short hair. Her previous owners found her as a stray when she was a kitten. She was surrendered because her previous owner is moving and can’t take her with him. She has no known injuries and the last time she went to the vet was 6 years ago. The two things her previous owner liked most about her were she’s mellow and quiet. Social Life and Personality: Blinky has not been around children or dogs. Around cats she is relaxed and affectionate and when she plays she is gentle. Blinky is litter box trained and had a low activity level. She can be described as playful, shy, mellow, fearful, affectionate, quiet and independent. Behavior: Blinky has never bitten a person or animal. Her previous owner didn’t attempt to bathe her or trim her nails. She enjoys having her coat brushed. she isn’t bothered if she is picked up, put in a carrier or disturbed while sleeping. For a New Family to Know: Blinky used clumping cat litter in an uncovered litter box. She showed no interest in toys. She used furniture to scratch on. When her previous owner was home she would tend to be in her favorite or stay hidden. She didn’t play with her previous owners and in car rides she was relaxed. She ate both wet and dry cat food and at night she slept in, or under, her previous owner’s bed. Behavior during intake: Blinky had a crouched body and dilated pupils. Her ears were turned out and fat. When she came out of her carrier she went into a corner and when I tried to approach her she growled, hissed and swatted. She also urinated when I toweled her.

12/04/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Blinky lived for seven years with her previous owner. She is noted to be relaxed, affectionate, and gentle with other cats. Her previous owner describes her as “playful, shy, mellow, fearful, affectionate, quiet and independent.” Blinky was tense and fearful at intake and was not tolerant of handling during her initial medical examination. She does not appear to be acclimating well to the care center environment and after several days is still avoiding interaction and hissing when approached. Reaction to assessor: Blinky is at the back of her cage, body tense. Reaction to cage door opening: remains in place, tense. Reaction to touch: Blinky allows the assessor’s hand to approach, though she remains frozen in place. As the hand gets closer, Blinky looks up at the assessor’s face and hisses. In order not to cause further distress, the assessor ends the evaluation here. Placement determination: New Hope Only While Blinky’s previous owner describes an affectionate cat, she is also noted to be shy and fearful at times. She is not thriving in the care center environment and is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Blinky is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
