**SAFE 09/21/2017** BAILEY is a mellow indoor cat who was nice to the kids in his former home. When those folks had “landlord problems,” they took him to the shelter where the poor guy was “TREMBLING” during the intake process. HEARTBREAKING! Please message [email protected] if YOU are able to foster/adopt this gentle soul, tonight!

09/11/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults and two children, ages 12 and 15 Behavior toward strangers: Shy, usually stays hidden at home Behavior toward children: Respectful, playing gently Behavior toward cats or dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes, uses a hooded litter box with clumping litter Energy level/descriptors: Bailey is described as affectionate, shy, independent and quiet. His energy level is low. Other notes: He spends most of his time hiding, but will come out and socialize with the main owner at home who feeds him. He will sleep in his primary owner’s bedroom under the bed, or under the couch in the living room. He likes toys with bells in them and chasing toys. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – allows exam, nervous EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Bailey was hunched over by the back of his cubby, neutral. Reaction when softly spoken to: Bailey looks at the assessor and averts his gaze. Reaction to cage door opening: Bailey becomes stiff and alert and starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to touch: Bailey’s ears tilt sideways as the assessor’s hand extends, but he leans forward to sniff it. He allows gentle petting with a slow approach, but remains tense and emits a high pitched grumble/whine. He continues to allow gentle strokes, but appears very uncomfortable. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Bailey has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may be uncomfortable with extended handling. 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Bailey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Although his previous family reports he was respectful around children, he may be more comfortable in a home with only adults. He will need time to warm up to his new home and family. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
