11/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Carmen’s previous owner reports she is shy around strangers for a few minutes and rarely seeks attention from them. She has never lived with children, but around adults she plays exuberantly. She has lived with another cat and was relaxed and respectful around this cat, playing gently. She also spent time with two small breed dogs and was respectful around them. She will swat when cornered, however, but has not bite history with people or other animals. The owner stated she does not have any behavioral issues, but says you need to be patient with her. She was best described as a mellow, shy, independent, and quiet cat with a medium activity level. She likes to sit on you when you’re at home and enjoys playing with strings. Reaction to assessor: Carmin was grooming herself upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Carmin doesn’t respond right away, but she eventually stops grooming and looks at the assessor with dilated eyes, lip licking. Reaction to cage door opening: Carmin remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Carmin hisses initially, but she sniffs the assessor’s hand and accepts petting with a slow approach. She arches her back and warms up, leaning in for cheek rubs and lying down. She appears to appreciate attention and begins to purr. Reaction to pick up: Carmin starts to growl and her body tenses up during attempt. Pick up was not done to avoid stress and escalating the interaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Carmin 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.
