Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Bret was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Timid, needs firm restraint for exam and treatments.
Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor:
Bret was tense and crouched near the front of the kennel with his tail wrapped around his body.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Bret’s eyes widen and he starts to breathe more rapidly.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Bret quickly retreats into his litter box.
Reaction to touch:
Bret lowers his body and appears hesitant when the assessor extends his hand forward. He sniffs, then gently leans in and accepts petting and rubs on his cheeks. His body perks up, he comes forward, purrs and solicits attention.
Reaction to being picked up:
Bret is a bit tense when picked up, but remains calm and allows all handling.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Bret 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.
