Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Adults and a 4 year old Behavior toward strangers: Shy at first and will hide Behavior toward children: Hides and keeps to himself Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Lived with a small dog and displays distance increasing behaviors whenever he approached Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, playful, and shy with a high energy level Other notes: Allows being held once he gets comfortable, and isn’t bothered when being put into a carrier. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change 03/07/17 Hiding under blanket, fearful. Wide-eyed and hissing, trembling. Able to give a quick, gentle hed pat after he sniffed my fingers, but clearly lets me know he’s not ready for much interaction; needs time to adjust. Sprayed Feliway and gave fresh food and treats. Initial med exam pending. 03/08/17 Hiding under bogus paper, clearly lets me know that he wants to remain hiding and not interact. On the other side of his double kennel I added a den and added a screen cover to see if he’ll use that. Needs time. Sprayed Feliway, left some treats. Update: Checked back and he was sitting calmly on top of his den on the side with the screen. He had to be on top of the den because the flap was shut and it was pushed against the rear wall–no access. I removed the screen and pulled the den to the front, so he can use it; and he did go in immediately. He wasn’t ready for any interaction, let me know that clearly. Needs time. Sprayed Feliway. 03/09/17 Sitting on top of den, calmly, right at front of kennel. When I slowly extend my hand he sniffs it, stays calm. I added some wet food, he jumps down to go to the food, vocal. I move on and will check back. When I return a while later he’s eaten all the wet food and is lying at the back of kennel behind den, calmly. Comes quickly to the front, becomes agitated, starts hissing and swatting. I added a screen cover. I check back a little while later and he’s quietly sitting on the covered side of his double kennel. Comes foward softly but starts hissing quickly. I added some catnip-silver vine mix to the other side of his double, and he really enjoys it. Rolls around actively, happy, ignores me. Overall, showing some improvement. Curious, shows interest at times in interaction. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Independent
RECOMMENDATIONS: Placement with a New Hope partner- Blondie is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. He may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. Blondie isn’t neutered and his owners report that he has been spraying in the home. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
