02/04/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Unknown EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Lane was pressed up against the back of the kennel with wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lane lip licks then slowly turns her head and tries to hide behind her blanket. Reaction to cage door opening: Lane remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Lane’s ears bend flat and she lip licks with wide eyes fixated on the assessor’s movements. She leans away when approached and flinches when touched. Her body feels tense, she’s easily startled and might flee with any sudden movement. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very fearful, tense, tries to flee. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Experienced, Adult Only Lane 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace. Lane has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. 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.
