Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ace was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. His finder reports he was wandering in their yard for a few months and says he’s shy, trying to hide from strangers. He would, however, approach when food is offered. He was a bit tense and nervous upon intake, attempting to hide, but slowly allowed gentle handling. The medical team reports he was tense, nervous, and fearful during his initial medical exam, attempting to flee, but did not display any signs of aggression and allowed them to handle him. Reaction to assessor: Ace was curled up by the back and has squinted eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ace’s ears tilt slightly sideways, but he makes eye contact with the assessor and starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to cage door opening: Ace becomes alert and lowers his head. Reaction to touch: Ace was tense, but accepts gentle petting with a slow approach. He meows softly and appeared fearful, but he tolerates petting on his head and body, remaining immobile. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Ace 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.
