02/07/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Indoors Previously lived with: Adult and 15 other cats Behavior toward strangers: Leery of people Other notes: Dotty was nervous during intake, but she allowed handling when slowly approached. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Dotty was sitting in her litter box and focuses on the assessor with wide eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Dotty’s eyes dart around frantically and starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to cage door opening: Dotty remains motionless and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Dotty lowers her body and curls her tail tightly against her body. She lifts her paw and swats when petting is attempted, and then retreats to the other side of her kennel. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/04/17 Low body posture, pressed up against the back wall of the kennel. Wide eyes fixated on all movements. Lip licks and looks around for an exit when the door opens. Very wary, wasn’t able to coax forward. Leans back and starts rapid breathing when approached. Tolerates petting (on head) briefly then hisses with ears pinned back. 02/06/17 Not able to coax forward to interact with chicken or other treats. Alertly fixated on my movements, never left litter box at back of cage but shifted weight back, tensed and hissed when I slowly extended my hand. Was not receptive to being touched. RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Placement with a New Hope partner – Dotty is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment 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. POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful – Dotty has displayed fearful behavior during her 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 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.
