Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cookie was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Someone close to Cookie reports she is friendly, outgoing and plays gently with adults. She spent time with young 5 year old children and would run and hide from them. Cookie has lived with two other cats for one week, around them Cookie was relaxed and affectionate. She enjoys having her coat brushed, being picked up/held, placed in a carrier and doesn’t mind being disturbed while resting/sleeping. Her finder describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy and quiet with a medium activity level. Reaction to assessor: Cookie was relaxed on her blanket at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Cookie starts to grumble, then rises up and slowly approaches the front to see the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Cookie moves back and lies down in her litter box with her paws hanging out. Reaction to touch: Cookie continues to grumble and leans forward to sniff the assessor’s hand. She slowly leans her head in for rubs and doesn’t mind being pet on her head. Her tail rises up but she keeps turning around and focusing her attention to the assessor’s hand when touched on her back. She seems uncomfortable, wary of her surroundings and slowly moves away when she’s had enough. Reaction to being picked up: Cookie slowly backed away when attempting to pick her up. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Cookie 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.
