11/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Katar’s previous owner reports he is fearful around strangers and will stay hidden when they visit the home. He has lived with two adults and spent time with children. He was respectful around children, but will keep his distance. The owner reports he will often escape from the home through windows. He prefers not to be picked up, but was described as a mellow cat with a low activity level. He tends to stay in his favorite spot at home. Reaction to assessor: Katar was lying down upon approach, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Katar gets up and his tail begins to quiver. He meows softly and approaches the front. Reaction to cage door opening: Katar remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Katar leans in for petting, begins to purr, and starts to knead. He nudges the assessor with his head, soliciting attention. Reaction to pick up: Katar was tense during pick up, but wiggles to get back down. He may be uncomfortable being held because of his girth. Katar’s previous owner reports he will urinate outside of his litter box when he is upset. We are unaware of what, if any, modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. Behavior Determination: Average Katar interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
