Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Indoors Previously lived with: Adult and 35 other cats Behavior toward strangers: Social Other notes: Coco Puff was tense during intake, but tolerated pick up and allowed to be placed into a carrier. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Coco Puff was hunched over in his litter box and hisses when noticing the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Coco Puff begins to growl and his eyes are wide and dilated. Reaction to cage door opening: Coco Puff shifts away and continues to growl. Reaction to touch: Coco Puff charges forward and displays distance-increasing behaviors. He does not allow contact and lip licks during the interaction. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/06/17 Agitated this morning, lunging at front of kennel, swatting, low growling, couldn’t open doors to check. Displaying different behavior from initial medical exam. MEDICAL NOTES: Friendly, head butts, allows all handling. RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, Adult Only – 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. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: While Coco Puff was reported to be social and affectionate in a home environment, we are seeing behavior in the shelter that is not noted on their profile. He has not been receptive to interaction with his human caretakers and displays distance-increasing behaviors when approached. We cannot be sure that this cat will respond the same way in a home environment, but we believe the behavior seen is exhibited due to being in a high stressful environment. We are basing the determination primarily on the owner’s profile; however we advise that adopters are aware of the behavior and that he may need to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
