Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Please note that this cat is being treated for a significant medical condition. We cannot be sure how this condition may be influencing her behavior in the care center, so we advise that her behavior may change as her medical condition is addressed Reaction to assessor: Alex does not come to the front, but remains neutral. Reaction when softly spoken to: Alex does not come to the front, but remains neutral. Reaction to cage door opening: Alex becomes stiff and alert, and tries to retreat. Reaction to touch: Alex tolerates the stroke, but hisses intermittently. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Alex tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or 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
