Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Junior’s previous owner reports he is friendly and outgoing, and will rub against stranger’s legs. He has spent time with children, but doesn’t like it when they run around and make loud noises. He will hide under the bed in fear. He plays somewhat rough with adults, latching onto their arms. He doesn’t play with children, however. He has lived with other cats and was respectful with all of them. He can be somewhat rough when playing with the other cats, nipping them, but never puncturing or scratching. He was best described as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, assertive, and quiet with a medium activity level. He likes balls, strings, and catnip toys. Reaction to assessor: Junior was calm and relaxed upon approach and had a neutral body posture. Reaction when softly spoken to: Junior’s eyes soften as he averts his gaze and looks around. Reaction to cage door opening: Junior curls up and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Junior was slightly hesitant, but he accepts touch all over his body. His body was shaking, but he begins to purr. He appears to appreciate touch, leaning in for cheek rubs and arching his back, but seems wary of his surroundings. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Junior tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
