10/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – BEGINNER
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Frank was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Frank was at the back of the kennel lying down on her blanket. Reaction when softly spoken to: Frank is curious, lifts his head up then slowly came forward and gently rubbed against the kennel door. Reaction to cage door opening: Frank is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Frank is very sweet and starts to purr softly when pet along his body. He allows petting all over, gently head butts and leans in when rubbed on his cheeks and head. His tail is raised and he continues to purr as he solicits attention. Reaction to being picked up: Frank was a bit tense when picked up but remains calm and allows all handling. Behavior Determination: Beginner Frank interacts with the assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. No known history of behavioral problems. This cat can go to a beginner home.
