Animal Behavior Saved At: 15-Mar-2018 17:31:53.000
Animal Name: Cindella
Age: 2 Years (approx)
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Spayed / Neutered: No
Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Sass was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Seems conflicted. Crouched next to litter box, tense, eyes dilated. Started growling on approach. Warmed up when given treats and spoken to quietly for a while, tail came up, started cheek rubbing bars and cage furnishings, still growling. Played gently when given catnip mouse, still occasionally hissing and growling. Stayed at the front when door opened, rubbing enthusiastically against the bars, but hissing more. Leaned very briefly into pets, then yowled and repeatedly struck assess-a-hand. Continued hissing after door closed, calmed and quieted when given more treats. Later, curled up and dozed in litter box, hissed or grumbled when spoken to.
Came to the front on approach, eyes fully dilated but soft posture, tail up. Started meowing loudly, rubbing against the bars, rolling over. Ate offered treats, occasionally hissed when spoken to. Hissed and grumbled loudly when I interacted with cat in neighboring kennel. Hissed and growled when door opened, tried to keep rubbing against the bars, then backed away, very focused on assess-a-hand. Sniffed assess-a-hand, briefly head-butted and leaned into pets, resumed eating treats, still grumbling. Immediately resumed rubbing against the bars when door closed.
Reaction to assessor:
Sass remains neutral, standing by the front during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Sass becomes alert, soliciting attention with eyes wide open.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Sass began to hiss with ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Sass seems to be conflicted, allows the touch on the head and body, but becomes agitated with the stroke. She began to increase distance, ears drawn back and hisses at the assessor’s hand. However, when the interaction stops she continues to solicit attention.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Sass may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. She may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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 her new home and family at her own pace.
