Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Admiral was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He allowed all handling during intake and did not display any signs of aggression. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tense, tries to run away and hide. Allows all handling. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Admiral lays in place and looks at the assessor with eyes half open. Reaction when softly spoken to: Admiral continues to lay in place and look at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Admiral remains in place, but hisses. Reaction to touch: Admiral hisses and swats at the assessor, then moves to the other side of the cage. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Admiral has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Please note that this cat has a severe medical condition so we may not be seeing any true behavior and behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner – Admiral is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
