02/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Charlie was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Charlie makes eye contact and was hunched over his bedding with his tail lowered. Reaction when softly spoken to: Charlie leans forward to sniff the assessor then slowly looks around at his surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Charlie hissed and slowly moved to the back of the kennel. Reaction to touch: Charlie has wide eyes focused on the assessor and slowly shifts away to the other side of the double kennel when approached. He sinks down low when the assessor touches him along his back and periodically lip licks throughout the interaction. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/07/17 Initially right at the front of the cage, body and head low, but alert; pulls back and avoids attempt to touch after I open cage door and slowly approach. Needs time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Nervous, trembling, allows all handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only- tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
