Ronda is a 13yr old spayed female domestic short haired cat that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of.
Social Life & Personality
The owner has never had Ronda around children, other cats, or dogs and isn’t sure how she would react in the presence of either. Ronda is and indoor only cat that in more recent times has accidents outside of the litter box. These accidents happen on a daily basis according to the owner. Ronda is described to be shy, mellow, and friendly with a medium activity level.
Ronda has bitten the owner in the past but nothing within the last 10days. She has never bitten another animal according to the owner. The owner has never tried to bath or trim Ronda’s nails and isn’t sure how she would respond to those grooming agents. However she likes to have her coat brushed and to be held.
For a New Family to Know:
Ronda was brought up using regular clay litter and standard litter box. Ronda show minimal to no interest in cat toys. When in the home Ronda is the type to follow you around seeking attention or be in a favorite spot inside the home. When interacting with humans Ronda plays in a gentle manner. When in the car for transport Ronda appears to be afraid and will meow/cry. Ronda was brought up eating both wet/dry food and there was no specific brand that the owner gave.
As per previous owner, Ronda is shy, mellow and friendly.
Reaction to assessor: Ronda is lying in her den in her cage.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Ronda comes out of the den and approaches the front of the cage.
Reaction to cage door opening: Ronda head-butts the assessor.
Reaction to touch: Ronda purrs and solicits petting and attention, allows petting all over body.
Reaction to pick up: Ronda is tolerant and calm during this type of handling.
Placement Determination: Experience
Ronda approaches the assessor, solicits petting and attention, and tolerates all handling.
Ronda’s previous owner reports that she was eliminating outside the litterbox, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try to address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment.
