12/05/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ava was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in a previous home. Reaction to assessor: Ava sat at the back of her cage, hunched, with legs tucked under body. She made a lot of eye contact with wide eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ava remained motionless, but continued to make a lot of eye contact. Reaction to cage door opening: Ava remained motionless, began rapid breathing, and focused more on surroundings than assessor. Reaction to touch: Ava allowed touching on her head and body but was tense, flinched and moved away, further back in the cage, and lip licked. Please note that Ava is being treated for a URI at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior. Please note that her behavior may change once she has recovered from the URI. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Ava tolerates attention and some 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 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.
