Please note that Mario is being treated at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation.
Reaction to assessor: Mario does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed
When spoken quietly: Mario does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed
Reaction to door cage opening: Mario remains soft and relaxed
Reaction to touch: Mario allows petting and attention. He also liked being rubbed on his belly.
Try picking cat up: Did not attempt to pick up Mario due to him having a fracture
Behavior Determination: Average Home
Mario was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention and tolerates all petting. Mario is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
