Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Former owner stated around strangers she is friendly and outgoing. he lived with a 1 year old and was usually tolerant with child, but can get defensive by hissing if pet too much. She plays very rough with adults and somewhat rough with children. He has not lived with other cats. He was living with a large dog and was respectful with him. Reaction to assessor: Jelly looks neutral, sitting upright on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Jelly remains in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Jelly accepts a brief stroke on the head, but becomes agitated to the touch then paws the assessor’s hand to stop. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Jelly solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to paw at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Jelly becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
