Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Jesse was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder reports she tries to run and hide. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tries to flee, scared, but allows handling for a bit when restrained. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Jesse was lying down in her litter box and had a low body posture. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jesse looks at the assessor and then looks away. Reaction to cage door opening: Jesse becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Jesse tenses up and shifts her body to avoid contact. She allows gentle petting with a slow approach, but will continuously try to shift away. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Unknown VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Jesse has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and would attempt to avoid contact when approached. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, Adult Only home – Jesse tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
