Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward cats: Relaxed, tolerant, plays gently Behavior toward dogs: Relaxed, tolerant, plays gently Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Hooded with clumping litter Energy level/descriptors: Medium Other notes: MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Growling, hissing EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Linda is resting on her kuranda bed, tense with eyes dilated. Reaction when softly spoken to: Linda starts hissing at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Linda wanders slowly around the cage, still hissing and growling. Reaction to touch: Linda sits in place, a little wary, allows petting on the head and body. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent, Bold POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Linda 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only Linda 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.
