2/10/18 Observed Behavior – calm allowed full PE
Curled up at back of cubby, head down, eyes fully dilated. Lay in place when door opened, sniffed treats but didnâ€™t eat. Tolerated pets, but curled up tighter and started lip licking. Left alone for now.
Asleep on bedding in top cubby, woke when door opened. Lay in place, looked up, eyes dilated. Started lip licking when touched, then turned head away, tolerated all pets with no real response.
Small improvement. Curled up in litter box, dozing. Became alert when door opened. Lifted head, continued to lay in place. Allowed touch, some lip licking at first, then began to lean into pets, extended neck for throat scratches, purred quietly. Curled up again after door closed, depressed?
Reaction to assessor:
Mardi Gras remains tense, crouched position with head down in his cage cubby during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Mardi Gras becomes alert with eyes wide open.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Mardi Gras stiffens up in place, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Mardi Gras accepts the touch and slowly head rubs the assessor’s hand. However, after a few stroke he continues to lip lick in place while eyes wandering towards sudden noises.
Reaction to being picked up:
He panics and retreats towards the back.
H – Healthy
