08/28/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Avery’s previous owner reports she is friendly around strangers. She has never lived or been around children, but plays in a gentle manner with adults. She has lived with a kitten and was relaxed, respectful, and tolerant of the kitten. She has also spent time with a medium sized dog and was tolerant of the dog, but mostly ignored the dog. She was described as friendly, affectionate, and mellow with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Avery was calm and relaxed by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Avery comes forward and sniffs around, and then rubs her cheeks on the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Avery remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Avery sniffs the assessor’s hand and accepts petting, closing her eyes. She stiffens when touched on her back, however, and whines and grumble. Reaction to being picked up: Avery becomes antsy and struggles to be placed back down. Behavior Determination: Experienced Florida tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
