02/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Unknown Gran was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Grand was relaxed on his blanket near the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Grand leans forward to sniff the assessor then slowly rolls over on his side and rubs up against the objects in his kennel. Reaction to cage door opening: Grand sits up and waits to greet the assessor. Reaction to touch: Grand sniffs the assessor then gently leans in allowing rubs and petting all over his body. He appreciates attention, rolls around playfully and gives the assessor soft head butts. Reaction to being picked up: Grand was a little tense when picked up, then got antsy and leaped away. He hissed when placed down but quickly warms up and continues solciting attention. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/07/17 Bright and alert, but sounds congested, appears to have a runny nose, noted on room’s symptoms log; vet rounds later this a.m. Needs to beef up, too thin. Allowed head rubs. 02/08/17 Lying in box, alert, calm. Allows petting all over. After some attention comes right to the front (he’s an older guy with a URI, so everything’s a little slow). Meows, solicits attention, reaches paws out without intentionally using claws (needs a trim), sometimes hisses. Eating well. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Shy but allowed all handling ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Sweet, Affectionate BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Average Grand interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents. Please note that Grand 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.
