THEO – A1046498
Theo is a handsome and regal orange and white tabby cat, with a friendly and playful personality. He lived with the same owner for almost all of his life. Now at 5 years old, he was dropped off at the shelter because his owner had personal problems. Theo has a big purr and a big heart, and he’s just waiting for someone to rescue him from lethal injection. He is a loving talky guy, full of head-butts and purrs. He has soft eyes and a huge heart. This little lion doesn’t deserve to die. Please save his life today!

08/06/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Theo looks neutral in his cage when aproached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Theo remains sitting upright by the front of the cage, alert with soft eyes, meowing attention. Reaction to touch: Theo head-butts the assessor’s hand, purrs in place, and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, he becomes overly aroused and starts to gently love nip then solicits more attention. Placement determination: Experience Theo is social and affectionate but appears to be 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 Theo becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
