03/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Alex was brought in without information on her behavioral tendencies in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Growling, very tense. Examined in Freeman net. When net was opened to examine face – hissed, tried to run. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 2/28/17 Ear mites, fleas, wounds around ears. Laying at the back, under the bed on approach. Stiff posture, eyes totally dilated. Ate treats when left alone or I turned away. Took a very long time to be willing to eat in my presence, only ate a few treats. Retreated, then walked slowly to other kennel when attempted touch. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Alex was lying down by the back, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Alex looks at the assessor and appeared unsure. She blinks softly, places her paw under her body, and then looks away. Reaction to cage door opening: Alex looks around but stays in place. Reaction to touch: Alex leans her head forward to sniff the assessor’s hand. She allows brief petting on her head, but shifts away quickly and starts to grumble. When petting was attempted again, she gently pats the assessor’s hand as a warning and continues to grumble. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Alex 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/her 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only Alex tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
