Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Behavior toward strangers: Hissed and fled when approached by counselor. Bite history: Bit owner during petting Scratch history: Scratched owner during petting Litter box training: Unknown Energy level/descriptors: Unknown EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Chanelle was calm and relaxed by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chanelle looks at the assessor, and then looks around at her surroundings. Her eyes are almond-shaped and her ears forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Chanelle retreated to the cubby and crouched over by the back. She inches forward again and appeared curious, but seemed unsure. Reaction to touch: Chanelle hisses at the assessor’s hand and squeezed her body against the back. She will sniff the assessor’s hand when extended, but will hiss and swipe when petting was attempted. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Hissing and swatting when cage opened and transferred to net. The medical team was unable to give a thorough exam due to Chanelle displaying distance-increasing behaviors when restrained. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow and Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Calm, Curious, Independent RECOMMENDATIONS: _x Placement with a New Hope partner Chanelle is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat and is fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. She may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: (Refer to Behavior Terminology sheet for detailed recommendations) _x Fearful Chanelle 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.
