09/01/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
09/01/15 13:42 BASIC INFO Hunt’s family found him 3.5 years ago as a stray and surrendered him due to pet conflict. SOCIALIZATION Hunt is friendly/outgoing with strangers. He lived with 2 children ages 0-4 and was relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. He played exuberantly with people. He grew up with a female cat who’s currently 4 years old. He used to play with and be relaxed with her, but began starting fights with her. The fights increased in frequency and severity as he got older. Yesterday, they fought and he inflicted an open, bleeding wound on her upper rear leg, which was cleaned at home. This was the worst of their fights. This cat is the only animal Hunt has interacted with. He’s never bit/scratched any people. BEHAVIOR Hunt is nervous in the car. He’s used to being bathed, brushed, and having his nails trimmed at the groomer. He doesn’t mind being woken up. He’s nervous when put into a carrier. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Hunt’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, talkative, and medium energy. He follows his family, sits in their lap, and loves to cuddle. He likes to play with toys and boxes. He lived inside and ate dry and wet food. His stomach is a little sensitive and he seems to digest wet food more easily. He’s littertrained, uses a hooded litterbox with clumping litter, and doesn’t have accidents. He uses a vertical scratching post covered in carpet and rough rope and doesn’t have accidents. INTAKE Hunt had a soft, relaxed body while I pet, scanned (-), collared, positioned for pictures, picked up, and put into a kennel. He head butted me and walked and looked around. He was easy to handle and didn’t resist/retreat/vocalize.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Hunt is friendly and outgoing with strangers. He has lived with two children and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. He plays exuberantly with people. He used to be relaxed around a female cat he lived with, but has been starting fighting with her as he got older. He has never bitten or scratched people, but has fought with the female cat. His family described him as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, and talkative with a medium activity level. He usually follows his family around, sits on their lap, and loves to cuddle. Reaction to assessor: Hunt remains calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Hunt lifts his head and looks at the assessor, but puts it back down to rest afterwards. Reaction to cage door opening: Hunt remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Hunt gets up immediately and head-butts the assessor. He remains in place for petting, begins to purr, and leans in for petting. Reaction to being picked up: Hunt becomes tense (possibly due to girth) and struggles out of the assessor’s arms. Behavior Determination: Experience Hunt interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Hunt has previously lived with another cat and has been reported to become fractious around her. He remains highly human-social and appropriate for new or experienced adopters, but we recommend either a one-cat home OR a home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time.
