02/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Unknown Hoots was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cat hiding under, cage rearranged, no change, recently cleaned, other Reaction to assessor: Hoots was sitting on top his feral den with his eyes closed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Hoots turns towards the assessor with wide eyes, starts breathing rapidly and lip licks. Reaction to cage door opening: Hoots remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Hoots lip licks and watches the assessor with wide eyes when approached. He flinches when touched but tolerates petting with a very slow approach. His body feels a bit tense, he closes his eyes when rubbed on his head and he doesn’t come forward when coaxed. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/07/17 Curled up, tense and wary, but allowed slow, gentle petting all over, didn’t react much. Tongue was hanging out. Beautiful cat. Shifted to litter box after I closed cage door, body and head low. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Fractious ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only- tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace. POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful- Hoots 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 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.
