Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Avery was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 04/10/17 Hissed when approached and maintained hissing when spoken to. Body was tense, with ears flattened against skull and whiskers back. Front arms held rigid in front while the rest of the body was leaning backwards. Eyes focused on me. Not ready to interact yet. Sprayed feliway and gave shoreline cover. 04/12/17 Still not open to interacting. Displays distance increasing behaviors when approached. Not adjusting well to the shelter environment. Needs NH placement asap. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Avery was crouched at the back of the kennel and hisses when the assessor pulls up the cage cover. Reaction when softly spoken to: Avery’s ear flatten, his body arches and hisses when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Avery low growls and his eyes dart looking for an exit. Reaction to touch: Avery hisses and displays distance increasing behaviors when the assessor approaches him. He appears very uncomfortable and currently doesn’t allow any contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Avery has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Placement with a New Hope partner – Avery is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
