MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior -netted, trying to bite, screaming ENRICHMENT NOTES: 10/11/17 In den, extremely tense, eyes fully dilated.. Started hissing and deep growling on approach. Poked head out when offered treats, picked up one by one and withdrew into den to eat. Only ate treats within close reach. Continued grumbling on and off. Startled at room noise, retreated fully into den. Sprayed feliway. 10/12/17 In den on approach, head poking out, eyes dilated. Seemed wary. Slowly came halfway the rest of the way out for treats, still eating one by one. Came briefly to the front and sniffed hand through the bars, tense. Scratched around in litter box for a prolonged period of time, squatted repeatedly, but didnâ€™t appear to successfully urinate. Became extremely alert when door opened, growled, nipped assess-a-hand. Backed away and crouched in place when door closed. Stopped growling and started slow blinking after being quietly spoken to for a while. Sprayed feliway. Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Logan remains hiding in his cat den during the approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Logan seems interested, peaks out from the den. Reaction to cage door opening: Logan engages the front, alert with eyes dilated, ears erect and forward. Reaction to touch: Logan slowly sniffs the assessor’s hand, raises arm and gradually attempts to paw, but doesn’t. While trying to pet, distance increases then growls and hisses to avoid contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Bold Curious Independent BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: New hope only Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Logan is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is stressed in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Recommendations Adoption Recommendations: Comments: Suitability With Children: Other: NH ONLY Yard Size: Overall Rating: Passed For Rehoming: Indemnity/Waiver: Adoption Summary: Color Match: Profile/Activity Level:
