02/10/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Atlantic was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cat hiding under, cage rearranged, no change, recently cleaned, other Reaction to assessor: Atlantic was hiding behind her litter box with her body lying flat. Reaction when softly spoken to: Atlantic slow blinks at the assessor, lip licks then turns her head away. Reaction to cage door opening: Atlantic sinks lower trying to avoid eye contact. Reaction to touch: Atlantic seems very wary and allows petting along her body with a slow gentle approach. She closes her eyes when pet and slowly warms up to contact. Her body feels a bit tense and she reluctant to come forward. Reaction to being picked up: Atlantic was tense when picked up and curls up tight in the assessor’s arms. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/08/17 Lying at very back of cage, quiet, alert, allows touching all over, leans away but doesn’t get up and move. Stays quiet throughout. Is eating well and used box appropriately overnight. Older girl. All cats in the litter are exhibiting similar behavior, nervous and wary but allowing handling, all eating well. 02/09/17 Seems to really not be feeling well today, trying to rest. Allowed some quick touching, but tense. Gave her some special treats and a honeysuckle and catnip infused plush toy. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Shy, allows all handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced cat parent – Atlantic 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. Please note that Atlantic is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation.
