03/28/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Coach was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder reports he allowed them to pet him and place him inside a carrier with no resistance. He allowed handling during intake after he was lured out of the carrier with food. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tried to flee from cage when handler put cat in feral den. Once in feral den – handled with towel, patient was tense and did some growling but did not try to bite, hiss or yowl. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Coach briefly looks at the assessor, and then feint sleeps. Reaction when softly spoken to: Coach does not respond. Reaction to cage door opening: Coach becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Coach was hesitant, but lowers his head and allows gentle petting on his head and body. His ears tilt sideways and he appears uncomfortable, but he is tolerant of all petting. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Coach has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may be uncomfortable with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him 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. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Please note that Coach is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Coach tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
