03/07/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Johanna was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She tolerated handling during intake, but when the counselor placed her back into a carrier, she began to hiss and swat. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Hissing and swatting when handled, escalates quickly, limited exam EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage recently cleaned Reaction to assessor: Johanna was lying down with blankets wrapped around her, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Johanna looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes, but she begins to growl. Reaction to cage door opening: Johanna becomes stiff and alert, and starts to lip lick. Reaction to touch: Johanna hisses and focuses on the assessor’s hand. She growls loudly, blinks, and lip licks. When petting was attempted, she hisses and lifts her paw, ready to strike. She swipes the air before contact is made and continues to growl. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Johanna has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. 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. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner – Johanna is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
