MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Did not allow handling, growling/hissing/attempting to bite ACTIVITY LEVEL: Nervous VOCAL: Growls CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Skittish, Not Socialized RECOMMENDATIONS: _X_ Placement with a New Hope partner POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful Crochet has displayed fearful behavior during his stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him/her 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 observations – New Hope Only Crochet is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, scratch, bite, is extremely fearful in the shelter and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
