OWEN – A1034073
*** GONE 04/28/15 ***OWEN SITS FACING THE CORNER IN TERROR! A NOW UNWANTED ‘GIFT’, OWEN WAS brought to the ACC! OWEN in WELSH means ‘well born’ and ‘Noble’ but poor OWEN has been kicked to the curb for ‘destructive’ behavior and urinating outside the box….however, his former owner didn’t take OWEN to a vet to have him neutered…nope, not ever. Nor did they seek behavioral advice. They just dumped him at ACC and moved on with their lives as ignorant people. So…now it’s up to the kindness of cat lovers everywhere to help OWEN!!! OWEN is a sweet boy who allows petting and is sitting facing the corner in a cage! He’s frightened-and rightfully so. How can a person have a cat 8 years and just bring him to a place where he might be killed and live with themselves? Please save this gentle boy. He deserves so much better. Neutering, and a proper diet can help Owen-doesn’t he deserve to live and be loved? SAVE OWEN TONIGHT!

04/23/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/23/15 14:10 BASIC INFO: Owen is an 8 year old male, domestic shorthair cat. He was a gift to the Owner by a Friend. Owen is being brought to the Admissions Center to be surrendered due to him urinating outside of the litter box and scratching furniture. According to the Owner he does not have any health concerns and last saw a Vet 3 years ago. SOCIALIZATION: Around strangers, Owen tends to be shy, but does approach after a little while. He can play somewhat rough with adults but that’s because my 12 year old daughter plays rough with him. Owen has never bitten a person or another animal. He has lived with a small dog(mix breed) and he was relaxed and affectionate. BEHAVIOR: Owen tends to scratch the corner of my couch and does have accidents outside of the litter box. He sprays outside of the litter box at least twice a week. It’s been going on for a couple of months. He has not been seen by a Vet for this problem. Owner thinks he is doing this because they moved to a new place. Owen does struggle when you try to bathe him, he allows you to brush him and trim his nails with no problem. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW: Owen is mellow and shy at first. His activity level is best described as medium. My favorite thing about Oven is that he is quiet. When Owner is at home with Owen, he follows Owner around. He enjoys playiung with balls. Owen is mainly an inside cat. Owen likes to sleep on top of the couch/tables and chairs. He is litter box trained but does go outside of the box at least twice a week. He has a hooded litter box and we use Arm And Hammer clumping litter. Owen likes to scratch on the wall, but does have a vertical tubular scratching post.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Please take note: Owen’s former owner stated he tends to be shy around strangers, but does approach after a little while. He can play somewhat rough with adults but that’s because my 12 year old daughter plays rough with him. He has lived with a small dog(mix breed) and he was relaxed and affectionate. Owen previous owner reports that he was eliminating (urinating and/or defecating) outside the litterbox and scratching furniture, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Reaction to assessor: Owen looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Owen remains crouched down at the back, attempting to hide. Reaction to touch: Owen accepts the stroke, but shows no interest with the touch and remains cautious with his surroundings. Placement determination: Experience / no child Owen tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
