06/22/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Jello was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on his behavior in his previous home. He appeared nervous during intake, but allowed petting and handling after a couple of minutes. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tries to flee EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Jello appears alert, but stays in place. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jello looks at the assessor and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Jello remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Jello allows petting. Reaction to being picked up: Jello is tense, but allows handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Kitten socialization – Jello is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. He may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes he has potential to warm up to people. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people. Please speak to an adoption counselor to learn more about socialization techniques. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parents – Jello tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home and family. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
