09/13/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Grover was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tense, resisted coming out of carrier, attempted to flee, short low growl after exam when back in carrier ENRICHMENT NOTES: 09/10/17 Lying on side of kennel, body tense and pressed against the wall. Ears are tilted and face is lowered onto floor. She tolerates soft petting along her head and body for a few moments, turning her head to watch my hand and then hissing. Growling after interaction has ended. Uncomfortable – needs more time to adjust. 09/11/17 Crouched down by side of kennel wall. She hisses as I open the kennel door and tolerates petting along her head and body while backing away and wrapping her tail around her body. Ears are completely flattened and her arms are stiff. Uncomfortable. Not interested in treats today. 09/13/17 Lying down completely flat, hiding behind her litter box. Avoids making eye contact, curls up and shrinks body. Very uncomfortable. Hisses upon approach, whips around quickly. She tolerates petting on her head as long as you go very slowly. Flinches when touched, closes eyes, very tense. Starts breathing more rapidly when pet along her back. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Grover has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Grover 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 an experienced, adult only home.
