Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cadence was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He had a tense and stiff body during intake and would retreat as the counselor extended their hand, growling and hissing. She attempted to flee during her initial medical exam and displayed fearful behavior. Reaction to assessor: Cadence was squeezed by the back and had a low body posture. Reaction when softly spoken to: Cadence looks at the assessor and blinks softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Cadence becomes stiff and alert, but remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Cadence begins to breathe rapidly, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. She flinches when touched and looks for an exit, but squeezes her body against the back corner and faces the wall during petting. She is tolerant of petting all over her body, but appears very uncomfortable. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Cadence tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her 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.
