Still very scared. Fled, hissing and spitting to the back. Started to cry when pet. Came slowly forward for treats when left alone, but does not tolerate interaction at all. Sprayed feliway.
Donna was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was curled up in her carrier, and fled around the room when outside of the carrier. She was tense and fearful during her initial medical exam, and was very vocal, but did not show any aggressive behaviors. The enrichment facilitator reports she is a scared and anxious kitten. She stress meows by the front, but hisses and flees to the back when her cage door was opened.
Reaction to assessor: Donna was by the front, lying down.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Donna looks at the assessor, shifts her weight a little, and meows softly.
Reaction to cage door opening: Donna retreats to the back and crouches inside a box.
Reaction to touch: Donna hisses at the assessor’s hand, but sniffs it and allows gentle petting. She hisses once more, but does not display further reaction and remains in place.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Donna 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.
This cat crawled up the carrier and when it did come out, it fled and ran all around the room. The cat did go into the MACC carrier after about 10 minutes if sitting in front of it.
