Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Avery and at the time he was in a cat den. Avery tolerated petting but was tense. He cried out and is wary of surroundings. Avery keeps looking back and slowly becomes used to touch.
Reaction to assessor: Avery was at the front of the cage hiding behind the clipboard
When spoken quietly: Avery becomes nervous and his eyes widen slightly
Reaction to door cage opening: Avery remains motionless
Reaction to touch: Avery was tense but allowed petting
Try picking cat up: Avery is tolerant of this type of handling but tense.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Avery was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. I was also able to pick him up and although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Very nervous. Stress meows. Leans away from contact. Allows petting. Uncomfortable, bounces against the walls trying to escape.
Backs away, wide eyes focused on movements. Allows petting briefly then looks around and retreats, Scales kennel wall and stress meows. Tail lowered.
Feral den was given sometime overnight. I feel like this would only make things worse. Needs more contact not somewhere to hide. Tolerates petting but tense. Cries out, wary of surroundings. Keeps looking back, slowly becomes used to touch. Closes eyes but uncomfortable.
