04/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
**Update 04/13/16** While Bruce would come to the front and solicit attention, he may be sensitive to touch on certain areas of his body. He appears to appreciate petting on his head and would lean into cheek rubs; however when stroked along his body, he is quick to turn around, focus on the assessor’s hand, and attempts to nip. He is tolerant and allows the assessor to pick him up, but will grumble when held. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Initially Bruce solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body his body tenses up and attempts to nip the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Bruce becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in home with experienced cat parents and without children. Date: 03/23/16 Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Bruce and at the time he was at the back curled up tight. Bruce tensely licks his lips and swats when close. Bruce ears bend flat and he starts to hiss. Reaction to assessor: Bruce does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed When spoken quietly: Bruce comes to the front of cage soliciting attention Reaction to door cage opening: Bruce remains soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: Bruce solicits petting and attention Try picking cat up: Bruce starts to grumble while bein picked up. Once placed back down Bruce goes back to seeking attention. Behavior Determination: Experince Bruce was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention and tolerates all petting. Bruce does not like being picked up or held if pushed he may swat. Bruce is displaying behavior appropriate for a experienced cat owner.
