05/30/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Kang was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Hissing, trying to bite net, trying scratch ENRICHMENT NOTES: 05/29/17 Lying in kennel with a low body and ears flattened. She hisses when spoken to and hisses again as the bear-claw reaches towards her. I place the bear claw down and she moves her head towards it to sniff, ears forward. Tolerates petting along head and body while tilting ears and turning her head away. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Kang was curled up tight in her litter box with her tail wrapped around her body. Reaction when softly spoken to: Kang’s alert, her ears perk up and she follows all the assessor’s movements. Reaction to cage door opening: Kang is tense and alert. Reaction to touch: Kang lowers her body and hisses with flattened ears when the assessor extends his hand out. She flinches and stays in place as the assessor pets her on her head. Her body is pretty tense and flinches every time the assessor’s hand passes over her. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Kang has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Kang tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
