Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Katra was brought in without information on her behavior in her previous home. She was brought in for scratching her previous owner, however details of the incident including trigger, warning signs, and severity are unknown. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: A little tense, swatting, growling, and hissing. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 7/5/17 In den on approach, peeking through holes. Stuck head out to sniff assess-a-hand. Repeatedly withdrew for a second, then poked head out again. Eventually kept head out and leaned into pets! Couldn’t coax all the way out. 7/6/17 In den on approach, peeking out and sniffing through holes. Stuck head out to eat nearby treats, tense posture, eyes dilated. Came a little way out with coaxing, but retreated back in very quickly. Able to coax out again when door opened. Seemed wary, but started leaning into pets and purring! Startled by noise from cat in top kennel, retreated back into den. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Katra was inside her cat den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Katra peeks out from the hole and has almond-shaped eyes. She presses her nose against the hole to sniff the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Katra remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Katra meows softly as the assessor extends their hand and she attempts to sniff through the hole on the den. When placing hand outside of the opening, she slowly comes out of the den to sniff. She accepts gentle petting on her head and on her body, meowing softly. Her tail begins to sway and quiver, but she seems to appreciate attention and petting. Reaction to pick up: Katra backs away to avoid pick up. Her tail starts to sway side to side more rapidly. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow, Moderate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Sweet, Curious RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parents – Katra interacts with the observer and appreciates attention, but she may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
