**SAFE 06/17/15** BO is a neutered 10-month-old kitten who is POLYDACTYL on all 4 paws, and who sounds like a real sweetie from his owner surrender sheet. Of course, this exceptional kitten is terrified at the shelter, and has earned a New Hope rating. This guy has been let down by a former owner who was surprised that BO was so active, and even used that as a surrender reason—talk about blaming the victim! The shelter is supposed to find homes for nice cats, not scare the crap out of them to the point that they earn “rescue only” ratings! Seriously, BO should be just fine once he gets into a foster/adoptive home. Make sure his story does not end on the euth table at the ACC, tomorrow, by sharing BO far and wide for a rescue pull, tonight!

06/13/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
6/13/15 11:40 BASIC INFO: Bo is an approximately 10 month old neutered domestic shorthair cat. He has been surrender because the owner is having personal problems with the cat (Cat is being too active) and can’t keep the cat anymore. Socialization: Around stranger Bo is friendly and outgoing but can play rough with people. He has never been around children or other animals so the owner does not know how Bo acts around them, however he interacts well with adults. Bo has never bitten anyone, but he can play rough at times. Behavior: Bo scratches furniture when he gets bored and has no cat toys to play with. In a car ride Bo meows a lot but does not try to escape the carrier. The owner has never given Bo a bath, trim his nails or brush his coat so the owner does not know who he will react when done. Bo allows the owner to place him in a carrier for transport and isn’t bothered being picked up and held by the owner. For a new family to know: The owner describes Bo as friendly and playful with a high activity level. He loves to play with all sorts of cat toys. The owner has stated that at home Bo has stuffed cat toys, cat nip toys and plastic balls with bells inside them. When at home Bo tends to be in the same room as the owner, he is kept indoors. Bo sleeps on a couch in the living room. He eats both wet and dry cat food (no specific brand) and always has food in his bowl. Bo is litter box trained and uses an uncovered litter box with clay litter. Bo has a scratching post that he uses but sometimes if he can’t find the scathing post or is bored he may scratch the arms of furniture. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE: Bo was claim and allowed us to scan (-), take a picture but became upset after we placed an ID collar on him (growled and hissed after handling).
No Web Memo

Reaction to assessor: Bo was stiff and alert upon approach. He was wide-eyed and hisses at the assessor. When softly spoken to, he hisses again, starts to growl, and is focused on the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Bo continues to hiss and starts to yowl. Reaction to touch: Bo does not allow touch; he hisses and swats at the assessor’s hand, backs up, and stares at the assessor. As per previous owner, Bo is friendly, outgoing, and can play rough with people. He has never been around children or other animals, so the owner does not know how he behaves around them. He behaves well around adults. Bo has never bitten anyone, but he can play rough at times. Bo was described as friendly and playful with a high activity level. Behavior Determination: NH ONLY Bo is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home.
