08/19/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lisa was tense and didn’t allow handling during intake. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Shows signs of fear (pinned at back of cage, flinches when touched). Handler was able to get out of cage, but then cat immediately flee off exam table. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 08/17/17 Sitting crouched in back of kennel, tense. Tolerates petting while raising her paw and squinting her eyes closed. Backs away with tail wrapped around body. Needs more time to adjust. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Lisa was curled up tight underneath her kuranda bed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lisa turns to make eye contact. Her ears are tilted forward, she slow blinks and she doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Lisa is tense and alert. Reaction to touch: Lisa rises up and leans away when the assessor extends his hand forward. She flinches slightly when touched, closes her eyes and briefly tolerates gentle pets on her head before shifting away. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Lisa 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 him/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 – Lisa 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.
