Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jet was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. His finder reports he did not like being picked up. He was tense and nervous during his initial medical exam, emitting some mild hissing, but allowed the medical team to conduct all handling. The enrichment facilitator reports he was nervous and unsure during their first interaction, but he came forward to greet them and had soft eyes and body. He warmed up with attention and allowed them to pet him and handle him. He moved around a lot and was a bit skittish, but displayed curiosity and appeared to appreciate attention. Reaction to assessor: Jet was lying down upon approach, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jet took a moment, but approached the front to sniff the assessor. He sat upright by the front and leaned against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Jet remained soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Jet head-butts, arches his back, and begins to purr. Reaction to pick up: Jet remains soft and lies gently on the assessor’s arms. He was easily placed back into his kennel, and continues to solicit gentle attention after. Behavior Determination: Average Jet interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
