Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Checkers was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was tense during intake, but allowed all handling. He was hissy and swatted slightly when approached for his initial medical exam, but became calm and allows easy handling once brought out of the cage. Reaction to Assessor: Checkers was crouched over mid-cage, and looks at the assessor with dilated eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Checkers’s ears tilt sideways and he focuses on the assessor. He hisses and begins to growl. Reaction to cage door opening: Checkers lowers his body and becomes tense. Reaction to touch: Checkers hisses and his ears bend flat against his head, but he remains in place and allows the assessor to pet him all over. He may grumble and appears very uncomfortable, but he does not display any further reaction. Reaction to being picked up: Checkers is a bit tense, but remains calm when held. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Checkers tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
