Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Aunty Yum was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was a bit nervous and cautious upon intake, but she allowed all handling. Reaction to Assessor: Aunty Yum was lying down and resting in her cage. Reaction when softly spoken to: Aunty Yum looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Aunty Yum remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Aunty Yum sniffs the assessor’s hand, head-butts, and then rubs her entire body against the assessor. She was very affectionate; however when touched on her lower back area where her matted fur used to be, she would hiss hard and attack her tail. She starts to growl and does not allow further contact. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Aunty Yum initially solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swipe at her tail. 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. This may also be a result of pain from touching her lower back area where her matted fur was shaven. 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 Aunty Yum becomes reactive. 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.
