Owner Surrender Profile
Mimi is about 13 years old. She is a gray domestic short hair. She has no known injuries or health problems. Mimi is being surrender because her owner is hospitalized.
Social Life and Personality:
Mimi lived with one adult and has not been around children, dogs, or other cats. She has a low activity level and is kept indoors.
The person surrendering the cat says that Mimi has accidents outside the litter box about every other day. He believes that is because the owner had a litter box for her and would place newspaper on the floor for her to use. The surrender says that he would only leave a litter box out and that she may be transitioning back to using exclusively the litter box.
For a New Family to Know:
Mimi was using clumping liter inside an uncovered litter box. She did not have a scratching post but she did not scratch on furniture either. The owner was feeding Mimi wet food 6-8 times a day but the surrender that has been caring for Mimi cut it back to twice a day.
Mimi was sitting neutral in the carrier. She allowed to be picked up and placed on the counter for photos. She did not move during the photos. She allowed to be collared and placed back in the carrier. She did not show any aggressive behavior. She did lick her nose a couple times when handled.
Spayed, approximately 13 years old
Fearful when approached. Tolerates handling, but scared when touched in new spots at first. No signs of aggression.
Overweight. Dental issues present – tartar and calculi buildup, gingivitis, missing teeth, gum recession
Activyl applied for flea prevention
Owner Profile: Mimi was bought to the care center because her owner is hospitalized. Mimi lived with one adult and has not been around children, dogs, or other cats. Her behavior around children and other animals are unknown. The surrender says that Mimi has accidents outside the litter box about every other day.
Notes: Mimi was brought to the shelter as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying social but also some fearful behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, allows handling and tolerates all petting. Mimi is displaying behavior appropriate for experienced cat parents.
