Behavior – Experience Home No Children:
Adeni was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder reports she did not tolerate handling and it was very difficult to capture her. She hissed and swatted when approached. She attempted to flee upon intake and displayed distance-increasing behaviors when approached. The medical team reports she was hissing and growling during her initial medical exam, but allowed handling to be conducted.
Reaction to Assessor: Adeni was inside a den upon approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Adeni does not respond.
Reaction to cage door opening: Adeni remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Adeni shifts away from the assessor’s hand, blinking and hissing. She tries to avoid contact and pushes further into the den, but allows gentle strokes and appeared very uncomfortable.
Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children
Adeni tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to her 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.
Resting outside of her den, slowly waking up and sitting up as I open the cage door. She starts eating food when provided, but flinches and backs away when touched briefly. She is very tense, and seemed to prefer to be left alone. Did not push her further.
