ENRICHMENT NOTES:: 10/29/19 Lying in the back with round pupils, staring around past me. Sniffs treats. Allows petting on the head but then gives a hiss. Does this twice. Needs time, but looks like a cat who will settle in. 10/30/19 Meows when spoken to. Resting on kuranda bed when approached by the assessor. She immediately sat up and engages the front. Head rubs and body leans into the hand when petted. Purrs throughout the interaction and appreciates the attention. No interest for offered tuna and temptation treats. 11/04/19 Resting by the front and becomes alert when spoken to. She looks around and slowly relaxes, and then averts her gaze from the assessor. She allows gentle petting on her head, but her tail remains lowered and she appears indifferent. She will sometimes lean away when hand extends, but allows petting while she eats treats. 11/05/19 Sitting upright near the back of the kennel alert of surroundings. Makes eye contact with wide pupils and hisses at the assessor on approach. Doesn’t engage when coaxed with treats. Comes forward and continues to hiss and low growl. Getting agitated quickly today. Gave feliway and cage cover. 11/6/19 Sitting upright at the back of the cage when approached. She remains alert, scanning the room when cage door opens. Ears erect and forward.

Engages when offered party mix treats and eats them in front of the assessor but gets agitated and starts to hiss and growl at the assessor. Not interested in toys. Gave shortline cover.


VOCAL:: Somewhat chatty

CHARACTER TYPE: : Bold,Social,Sweet,Affectionate

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: New home adjustment period

Potential challenges comments:: Lola should be given a slow introduction to the home, one room at a time starting in a small room like a bathroom with food, litter and water, because of behaviors seen at the Care Center [hissing, attempting to flee] strongly suggest that she will need time to settle in. Interact with her in this room until she seems sufficiently confident that you feel you can introduce her to the next part of the home without running the risk that she will hide. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to help introduce your cat to the home.


Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: During her interaction, Lola was stress meowing by the front. She allowed a few strokes on the head and back with tail high but was pacing back and forth in the kennel with dilated pupils and was trying to get out. Lola was not interested in tuna or temptation treats. When the kennel door was closed, she started to hiss, low growl and scratch at the door as a sign of frustration. Placed a shortline cover with feliway on her kennel and seemed more relaxed a few minutes after. Lola is a sweet cat, tolerates attention and petting but appears stressed and frustrated in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
