08/08/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Balance was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Growls, charges, swats, and attempts to bite when approached and during any handling. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Balance was relaxed and eating his food at the front of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Balance turns towards the assessor, sniffs then goes back to eating. Reaction to cage door opening: Balance is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Balance sniffs the assessor’s hand then leans in and accepts gentle petting on his head and along his body. His body perks up, his tail rises and he gives gentle head butts when rubbed. He occasionally pauses then becomes focused on his surroundings and quickly whips around and hisses when he’s had enough attention. Reaction to being picked up: Balance was a bit tense when picked up and immediately jumped back into the cage. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Curious, Affectionate RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced cat parent – Balance may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
