MOST RECENT MEDICAL INFORMATION AND WEIGHT
02/02/2017 Exam Type BEHAVIORPART2 – Medical Rating is 4 C – SEVERE CONDITIONS , Behavior Rating is EXPNOCHILD, Weight 7.6 LBS.
BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Experienced, Adult Only Please note that Dicaprio 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. Dicaprio has displayed fearful behavior during their 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 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. Dicaprio 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 or her 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.

Sprayed a little Feliway and provided fresh food and water. 02/01/17 Curled up in a bed made from two litter boxes and a blanket, semi-alert, quiet. Allowed me to give some head rubs, didn’t seem ready for much beyond that. Stayed quiet, unmoving with the petting, but no hissing or growling or attempt to avoid.
