06/02/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/02/15 19:49 Basic Info: Pepito is a 6 year old neutered orange and white cat. His owner got him from a breeder about 6 years ago. He is on Urinary S/O food for bladder stones. He is described as independent and loving. Social Life and Personality: This cat is comfortable around small children but he doesn’t really play with them. He is gentle when he does interact with the kids. Papito does NOT like other cats. He lived with his sister for a short time and he would not allow her near the litter box, his or her own. The opposite is true of dogs. Papito has a good history with dogs. He gets along with large and small dogs alike. He is master of the litter box and has been kept exclusively indoors. Papito’s activity level is just about average. He is described as mellow, friendly and affectionate. Behavior Issues: Papito will struggle in the bath. He really does not like it and he will swat at you and hiss until that is made clear. He isn’t bothered by a good brushing but he doesn’t like to be picked up or held. In the carrier Papito will meow and cry for a short time but he does calm down after a few minutes. For a New Family to Know: This big boy is most used to Tidy Cats litter in his automatic box. He is a big fan of ball toys and stuffed toys. Stuffed mice are his top prize. He loves to scratch a carpeted post or even just the carpet itself. When his owner is home, Papito likes to be in the same room or following close behind them. He is gentle at play time and he has been known to meow while in the car. He is fed S/O food to keep his urinary crystals in check. This guy is on a feeding schedule of morning feed, 3 pm feed and 9 pm feed. After his 9 pm meal he has been seen passed out at the end of his owner’s bed. Behavior During Intake: This cat was brought in inside of a backpack. He went into the carrier without an issue. He allowed me to collar him and take his photo. While I was collaring the cat, he became hard bodied and was looking at the window. When I finished with the collar he started to make his way closer to the window. I put my hand up to slow him and he stopped and hissed at my hand. I took two quick pictures and he hissed again. I placed the food inside the carrier and he followed. As I closed the door, the cat hissed two more times.
