10/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Alba looks neutral, sititng upright by the front when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Alba stands at the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, meowing attention. Reaction to touch: Alba head-butts the assessor’s hand, but began to stress meow and hiss during the stoke while she continues to solicit. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Alba solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hisses and stress meows 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 Alba becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
