Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Boost’s previous owner reports he has never been introduced to children. He has only lived with one adult since he was a kitten and will hide in fear when strangers visit the home. It takes him a few days to warm up to new people, and will sometimes hiss when strangers pet him. He has been introduced to other cats, but avoids them and stays to himself. He was described as a shy, fearful, and quiet cat. He will sometimes engage in play with strings and toys. He will solicit attention from the owner for a few, but will retreat to another room after. Reaction to assessor: Boost becomes stiff and alert. Reaction when softly spoken to: Boost looks at the assessor and starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to cage door opening: Boost remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Boost sniffs the assessor’s hand and meows softly. He allows petting on his head and body and slowly warms up. However, his body remains tense and his tail is wrapped tightly against his body. Placement Determination: Experienced, No Children Boost tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
