Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jack is described as friendly around strangers and will engage in rough play. His owner says he occasionally nips and scratches when playing and he’s never been around children or dogs. He spent time with a 7 year old female cat and was described as fearful and aggressive towards her. Jack will struggle and bite when trimming his nails and enjoys brushing his coat and being held. His owners describe him as affectionate, playful, confident and talkative with a high activity level. He loves to chase laser pointers and likes playing with wand toys at home. Reaction to assessor: Jack was curled up and resting in his litter box at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jack gets up and slowly approaches the front to greet the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Jack takes a few steps back and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Jack allows petting with a slow approach, warms up and leans in for rubs. His tail starts to flicker intensely the more you interact with him and will occasionally whip around and nip with medium to hard amount of pressure. He becomes over- aroused easily and plays rough the more you interact with him. Jack is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated and plays roughly. 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 Jack 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. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Jack solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. Due to Jack playing rough and getting overstimulated easily we feel that this cat will do best in a home without children.
