Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Adults, 2 turtles, 1 bird, 8 dogs and other 14 cats EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage rearranged Reaction to assessor: Bambi was hiding inside her feral den at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Bambi makes eye contact through the air holes and didn’t come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Bambi remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Bambi lip licks then presses her body up against the back of her den. Her eyes are wide/ dilated and she starts to hiss when the assessor approaches. She displays distance increasing behaviors and didn’t allow any contact. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Nervous, tries to flee, allows all handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful- Bambi 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 her 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: _x_ Placement with a New Hope partner-Bambi is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She 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.
