Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with John Snow for a few days. At first he had slow movements. John Snow low blinks but allows petting. He becomes nervous and turns head to wall with his tail curled up in the back. During the last interation he was tense at the back of the kennel and very nervous. He leans head forward and allowed rubs
Reaction to assessor: John Snow does not come to front but remains neutral
When spoken quietly: Johh Snow does not come to front but remains neutral
Reaction to door cage opening: John Snow remains motionless
Reaction to touch: John Snow tries to avoid being touched
Try picking cat up: John Snow is not tolerant of this type of handling.
Behavior Determination: Experience
John Snow was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
