09/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Harriet was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very vocal, very scared, tried to get away ENRICHMENT NOTES: 08/31/17 Lying in back of kennel with a low body, ears titled. Tolerates petting along head and body while shifting weight and vocalizing loudly. Needs more time to adjust. Uncomfortable with touch at this time. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Harriet was crouched at the back of the cage with her tail wrapped around her body. Reaction when softly spoken to: Harriet was alert and slowly inched away. Reaction to cage door opening: Harriet quickly retreats to the other side of the double kennel. Reaction to touch: Harriet retreats to the back of the kennel and presses her body against the wall. She stress meows when the assessor extends his hand and flinches when touched on her head. She follows the assessor’s movements and seems very uncomfortable. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Harriet 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 – Harriet 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.
