MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – calm, allows exam ENRICHMENT NOTES: 08/25/17 Very stressed. Ears bend completely flat, eyes dilated, low body posture. Not open to interacting. Hisses and swats when approached. Might be due to loose cat- will check again later. Needs more time to adjust. 08/27/17 Sitting on top of kuranda bed, body low and ears flat. Growling and making eye contact. Raises head and continues to growl as assessor hand reaches forward. Bats hand multiple times before it can make contact with her head. Very stressed. EVALUATION: Reaction to assessor: Charlie was crouched over by the back, alert. Reaction when softly spoken to: Charlie focuses on the assessor with dilated eyes and appears unsure. Reaction to cage door opening: Charlie becomes stiff and alert, hissing. Reaction to touch: Charlie’s ears pin down against her head and she focuses on the assessor, growling loudly. She hisses when petting is attempted and will strike to avoid contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Cannot evaluate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Bold, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Charlie 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner – Charlie 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, 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.
