***SAFE 12/21/15*** ADOPTED IN SEPTEMBER, RETURNED IN DECEMBER….So much for a happy holiday for SANDY!! SANDY has been doing her business outside the litterbox for two months and yet her adopter never took her to the vet to find out if there was a physical problem…..much easier to just dump SANDY back at the shelter. At the ACC, SANDY is using the litterbox and is friendly but hesitant as you would expect a shelter cat to be. SANDY is already SPAYED and one year old. PLEASE GIVE SANDY THE LOVING AND UNDERSTANDING HOME SHE NEEDS…Something clearly was not right in her previous home and she needs the right purrson by noon tomorrow!! BRING SANDY HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!! APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HER NOW!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sandy’s previous owner stated that she has lived with an elderly woman, adults, and children ages 13, 11, and 4. She is relaxed and tolerant towards people in the home, but she has never been around other animals. She was kept indoors and has a medium activity level. She was described as shy, assertive, and affectionate. Sometimes when the owner pets her she will turn around and nip the hand, but it never punctured skin. Sandy will struggle when picked up and held. Reaction to Assessor: Sandy was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sandy looks at the assessor and then looks around her surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Sandy remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Sandy was a bit hesitant, but she meows softly and shows interest in interacting. She head-butts lightly, leans into petting, and rolls over. She hisses when pet too roughly and her tail starts to wave back and forth, but she appreciates petting when approached slowly and slowly warms up. She still seems cautious of the assessor’s hand throughout the interaction though. Reaction to being picked up: Sandy becomes tense and struggles to be put back down. Sandy’s previous owners report that she was eliminating outside the litter box for two months and has been urinating and defecating on clothes, the carpet, and the couch. We are unaware if any modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. She has used the litter box appropriately during her stay in the care center. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Sandy interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, and tolerates petting, but she appears to be easily overstimulated. 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 Sandy becomes overstimulated. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center we feel that this cat will do best in a home with experienced cat parents and without children.
