Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Unknown Previously lived with: __ adults and __ children ages ___ Unknown Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward strangers: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite history: Unknown Scratch history: Unknown Litter box training: Unknown Energy level/descriptors: Unknown Other notes: Was removed from a home after owner was hospitalized; had, apparently, been living with two other adult cats. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Jewel was hiding under her blanket Reaction to assessor: Remained hiding Reaction when softly spoken to: Remained hiding Reaction to cage door opening: Poked head out to look, but stayed under blanket Reaction to touch: Able to give head rubs, but uncomfortable ENRICHMENT NOTES: 01/29/17 Quiet, unmoving, dull. Doesn’t seem to be eating any of the new offerings provided by Medical. Gave her a little Royal Canin Babycat to see if she might try that, but doesn’t sniff or move from lying position in box. With a slow approach she let me pet her head; didn’t force anything further, but will add to socialization list. Arrived from same home as Ashton, 1102351, and Alex, 1102350, each in his/her own cage. 01/30/17 ACO observation log is blank, no idea if she ate overnight. Offered a couple types of wet food, and Medical is trying selections too. Stays at back of cage, nervous, allowed some head scratches, follows my hand with her eyes and head. Not sure how much being separated from her former housemates is affecting her behavior. Is receiving medical treatment, will hopefully have her feeling better. Update: Is now hiding under the blanket, doesn’t seem to have eaten. Offered a couple other selections, baby food, Wellness wet, and some Kong “easy treat” paste. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: __ Experienced cat parent X_ Experienced, adult home only __ No other cats OR multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: X_ Experienced, Adult Only Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel Jewel will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands she may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace. Please note that this cat has a severe medical condition so we may not be seeing any true behavior and behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves.
