Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jacob was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He attempted to flee upon intake and had a low and tense body. He also attempted to flee during his initial medical exam. The enrichment facilitator reports he was hiding inside a den during their first attempt of an interaction. Jacob would watch them through a peephole, but they were unable to coax him out. They attempted to coax him out the next day with treats and wet food, but did not have any luck. Reaction to assessor: Jacob was inside a den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jacob does not respond and the assessor could not see him shift inside his den. Reaction to cage door opening: Jacob remains motionless. Reaction to touch: The assessor shifted the den to get a better look at Jacob, but he becomes stiff and alert and squeezes his body to the far end of his den. He focuses on the assessor’s hand and lip licks, but remains completely immobile during touch. He remains tense and allows gentle petting on his head and body. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Jacob 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
