GONE 04/14/15 -LITTLE BIT – A1031062 – MANHATTAN, NY
WIGGLE IT WITH BEGINNER LITTLE BIT! Delicious black and white cookie, Little Bit is a 10 year old precious pet who desperately needs us to advocate for her tonight. Little Bit was surrendered on 3/23 due to “personal problems.” Little Bit is used to living with kids and has been an indoor only pet. She aced her behavior eval—chirping and meowing when approached and tolerates all petting and handling. Her former owner claims she stopped using the litter box for a week after she moved to a new house. This issue was not addressed with a vet but most likely, it is not an issue at all. Let’s do everything we can to move this great girl, who is already spayed, to safe haven. She is ready to go home with you and we can’t let her die due to a couple of curable kitty sniffles. Make the call for beginner Little Bit. Save a life. Make a difference

03/23/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/23/15 10:52 Basic Info: Little Bit is a 10 year old spayed cat that has no known injuries or medical problems. Social life and Personality: According to the owner she has been around children (from 6 years old and up) and is relaxed and affectionate towards them but doesn’t play. She has not been around dogs or cats so her behaviors are unknown. She has been kept indoors only and has a low to medium level of energy. She is litter box trained. Behaviors: She has not bitten anyone or any animal and allowed to be given a bath with no aggression or trying to escape. She has not had her nails trimmed but is not bothered when brushed and enjoys being picked up and held. She has had litter box issues for the past week where she will defecate outside the litter box but has not been taken to the vet for it. It is believed to be happening because she recently has been relocated to a new home and was fearful of using the litter box that was hidden away. New Family Info: She is used to clumping litter inside an uncovered box. She does not play with toys and at home stays in a favorite spot. She was fed dry food (Purina naturals) and was free fed. Intake Behavior: During intake was calm and quiet. Sat at front of carrier and allowed to be scanned (negative), collared, pictured, and transferred without aggression. When touched/held had stiff body at first and then relaxed. When inside new carrier sat at front and when given food would eat.
