08/08/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/08/15 13:45 Basic Information: Chucky is a 13yr old neutered male domestic short haired cat that has no past or current medical issues according to the owner. Social Life & Personality: Chucky has been around children and interacted with them in a gentle manner according to the owner. He has also lived with another cat and they got along just fine according to the owner. The owner isn’t sure how Chucky would respond in the presence of a dog due to never having one around for Chucky to interact with. Chucky is an indoor only cat that is litter box trained. Chucky is described to be friendly, quiet, and playful with a high activity level. Behavior Issues: According to the owner Chucky has never bitten a person or another animal. The owner has never tried to bath Chucky or trim his nails. So the owner isn’t sure how Chucky would respond to having these grooming agents done. However he would allow you to brush his coat and this can be done with no issues. Chucky likes to be held and when being put in the cat carrier for transport he is fine. For a New Family to Know: Chucky was brought up using clumping litter and a hooded litter box. Chucky loves all sorts of cat toys and will play with just about anything according to the owner. Chucky did have a scratching post but prefered to use the furniture instead of the scratching post. When in the home Chucky is the type to follow you around seeking attention. When interacting with humans Chucky plays in a gentle manner. When in the car for transport Chucky appears to be fine and will most likely just go to sleep. Chucky was brought up eating wet food and the brand the owner gave was Fancy Fiest. Behavior During Intake: Chucky came into the facility in a cardboard cat carrier by the owner. At first Chucky seemed to be fine, he was vocal and allowed petting. A few moments after the owner left I went to collar him and he hissed. I gave it a moment and tried again and at this time he hissed and swatted towards my hand. I wasn’t able to collar, handle, or take a photo of Chucky due to this behavior.

08/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Chucky was calm and relaxed upon approach. He solicits attention and rubs against the cage door when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Chucky become stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Chucky becomes alert, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. After thoroughly sniffing, he rubs lightly and allowed petting. He stress meows during the interaction, but he gradually starts to yowl and becomes overstimulated as he swats at the assessor’s hand several times. Note: Chucky initially solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to yowl and swats at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Chucky becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Chucky is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat and does not currently tolerate petting or handling for long. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
