Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Cocoa is shy around strangers for a few minutes and has never been around other cats or dogs. She has been introduced to children ages 13 years and up and was relaxes with them. Cocoa plays exuberantly with children, adults and doesn’t mind being brushed and picked up/held. Her owner describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, and talkative with a medium activity level. She likes balls and strings and was kept mostly indoors. Reaction to assessor: Cocoa was lying down at the front of the kennel and looking around at her surroundings with her paw hanging out. Reaction when softly spoken to: Cocoa rises up, leans forward to sniff the assessor then slowly moves away with her tail at body level. Reaction to cage door opening: Cocoa lip licks and seems wary of her surroundings. Reaction to touch: Cocoa seems unsure when the assessor approaches, keeps her body low and closes her eyes when pet. She seems to enjoy cheek rubs, leans in and gives a gently head butt for attention. Her tail pilo-erects and the end of her tail starts to twitch while interacting with her. She seems to get aroused quickly and starts to grumble and hiss to stop. Cocoa is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Cocoa becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Cocao tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her 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.
