01/11/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Acadia was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder stated she has seen him around the neighborhood for a few weeks and says he is fearful, but allowed petting. He was fearful and had a tense body upon intake, retreating to the back of the carrier. He was also tense and nervous during his initial medical exam, but allowed handling. Reaction to Assessor: Acadia does not come to the front, but remains neutral in his cage. Reaction when softly spoken to: Acadia becomes stiff and alert, and his eyes wander. Reaction to cage door opening: Acadia remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Acadia lowers his head and lip licks, but he remains immobile and allows all petting. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Acadia tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children. 1/13 update: Acadia is not thriving in the shelter environment, and he avoids interaction with his caretakers. When approached, his body is flat against the ground and he is hiding behind the litterbox. He backs away from the assessor’s hand when reached for and allows touch but flinches. The busy adoptions room will likely be overwhelming for Acadia, so we recommend that he move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
