Bumble was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Fleed immediately when brought out of carrier, tense and hunched, reactive to sudden movements
Crouched on top of kuranda bed, body tense and ears flattened. Face is also tensed. Tolerates petting along head and body with the bear-claw briefly before darting to the other side of the bed. Nervous and uncomfortable with touch â€“ needs more time to adjust.
Crouched on top of kuranda bed, pupils dilated and tail wrapped around feet. Face is tense. Tolerates petting along head and body with the bear-claw while flinching, then darting to the other side of the bed. Nervous, needs more time to adjust. I left her some treats and left her alone.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Bumble was tense and perched up on top her kuranda bed.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Bumble’s watches the assessor’s movements with wide, dilated eyes and her whiskers fan out.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Bumble quickly retreats to the other side of the double kennel.
Reaction to touch:
Bumble looks around the kennel frantically, she starts breathing rapidly and she shifts away when approached. When the assessor extended his hand out she hissed, then bit and darted forward trying to escape.
Potential challenges comments:
Bumble 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 her 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.
New hope only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Bumble is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to bite, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment 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.
