Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Baby’s former owner stated he hides from strangers. He runs away from children. He lived with an adult man and an adult woman. He allowed them to pet him while he ate. Gizmo (A1096701) and Baby were relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played gently together. They slept together. Baby was startled by a dog in the home. Also, described him as friendly, playful, shy, quiet, independent, and medium energy. Reaction to assessor: Baby looks anxious, tightly curled up on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Baby retreats to the back with ears slightly to his side, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Baby avoids being touched while he began to lip lick in place, but when touched he stiffens up and flinches. Placement determination: Experience / no child Baby tolerates attention and petting, but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
