02/10/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Coast was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Recently cleaned Reaction to assessor: Coast was crouched in his litter box and looking around his kennel with wide eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Coast lip licks and sinks lower into his litter trying to avoid contact. Reaction to cage door opening: Coast seems very wary and quickly moves over to the other side of the double kennel. Reaction to touch: Coast hissed and curled up tight in the corner of the kennel. He seems very uncomfortable, turned his head to the wall and allowed petting along his body with a slow gentle approach. His body feels tense when petted and he continues to lip lick throughout the interaction. Reaction to being picked up: ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/08/17 Lying at very back of cage, quiet, alert, allows touching all over, leans away but doesn’t get up and move. Stays quiet throughout. Is eating well and used box appropriately overnight. Older guy, really needs grooming. All cats in the litter are exhibiting similar behaviors, nervous and wary but allowing handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Fearful, tense, allows all handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only – Coast tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and 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 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. Please note that Coast 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.
