07/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Chazzdy comes to the front and solicits attention, rubbing her entire body on the cage door. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chazzdy rubs her cheeks and is calm, relaxed, and friendly. Reaction to cage door opening: Chazzdy remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Chazzdy leans in for petting and rubs against the assessor. She attempts to explore outside her kennel, but becomes tense and whines when noticing another cat. She continues to accept petting from the assessor, but displays signs of agitation. She grumbles, her tail waves from side to side, and she focuses on the other cats. When the assessor tries to distract her, she whines and does not allow further contact. Reaction to pick up: Chazzdy becomes antsy and struggles away from the assessor’s arms. Behavior Determination: Experience Chazzdy remains social and easy to handle with her human care takers, but please be aware that she may be uncomfortable around other cats. Due to this behavior, we recommend Chazzdy goes to a home with no other cats OR into a multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time. Because she continued to display signs of agitation long after noticing another cat, we recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Chazzdy becomes overstimulated.
