02/12/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Huron was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He hissed during intake when the counselor attempted to take him out of the carrier and displayed distance-increasing behaviors to avoid handling. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Huron was calm and relaxed by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Huron looks around, flicking his tail, but later he plops onto his side and rubs his cheeks against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Huron gets up and greets the assessor by the front. Reaction to touch: Huron head-butts and leans against the assessor’s hand. He flips his head back to look at the assessor’s hand when touched on his back, cautious. When stroking him on his back again, he nips near the assessor’s hand and pats the hand gently without nails. When petting stops, he continues to solicit attention and rubs against various objects. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate, Lively VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Affectionate, Overstimulated POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Overstimulation – Huron is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Huron becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only – Huron solicits attention and tolerates petting but appears to get overstimulated when touched on certain areas of his body. He gives clear warnings, however, and will not escalate if petting stops. Due to his tendency to nip and pat the assessor’s hand away when touched on his back, we feel that this cat will do best in an adult only home.
