Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Batista was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He hissed and swatted while inside his carrier during intake. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: During intake exam, patient was scruffed and he meowed/yowled several times but did not show any signs of aggression. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat. Reaction to assessor: Batista was inside a den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Batista does not respond and remains motionless. Reaction to cage door opening: Batista becomes stiff and alert, looking out from the peep hole with dilated eyes. Reaction to touch: Batista hisses as the assessor extends their hand towards the den. He does not allow touch, he strikes when petting was attempted. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Unknown VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful – Batista 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: _x_ Placement with a New Hope partner – Batista is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat 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.
