03/06/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Fruit Loops was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was displaying distance-increasing behaviors during intake and did not allow handling to be conducted. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Striking, examined in net EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Fruit Loops becomes alert and sits up by the back, looking around. Reaction when softly spoken to: Fruit Loop’s ears tilt sideways and his eyes dart around. Reaction to cage door opening: Fruit Loops continues to look around, wide-eyed, and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Fruit Loops hisses as the assessor extends their hand and lifts his paw, ready to swat. He does not allow touch, he shifts away to avoid contact and attempts to flee. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Unknown VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Fruit Loops 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/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 SUMMARY: Please note that this cat is being treated for a medical condition at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner – Fruit Loops 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, 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.
