Animal Profile


Joey

Hello, my name is Joey. My animal id is #56757. I am a desexed male orange tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 10-Mar-2019.

Reserved

Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Joey was placed at risk due to behavioral concerns; Joey is not thriving here in the care center and is displaying fearful-distant behavior. Allows minimal handling and interactions and will benefit from placement as soon as possible. Joey was diagnosed with Lameness on his Right front.

My medical notes are...

Weight: 10.15 lbs

For a New Family to Know: Unknown information

KNOWN HISTORY:: Joey was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to this cat’s behavior in a previous home.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:: 03/10/19 Observed behavior: Hissing and spitting, trying to flee. Required sedation with 0.1 ml telazol for exam.

Cage Condition:: Cage is neat

Reaction to assessor:: Joey is laying in the center of his kennel spread out and relaxed.

Reaction when softly spoken to:: Joey makes eye contact and semi rolls.

Reaction to cage door opening:: Joey rolls over and watches the assessors.

Reaction to touch:: Joey allows all petting on his head and cheeks but will whip his head, hiss, and false nip when pet on his body.

ACTIVITY LEVEL:: Moderate

VOCAL:: Quiet

CHARACTER TYPE: : Sweet,Independent

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: Pet-induced aggression

Potential challenges comments:: Initially Joey solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to whip his head and hiss at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Joey becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. Joey's more sensitive area is along his back and body.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experienced, adult only

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Joey solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. Due to his petting induced aggression and/or sensitivity to being pet along his back, we feel that this cat will do best in an adult only home.
