Hissed whenever approached ACTIVITY LEVEL: unable to determine, VOCAL: Unable to determine CHARACTER TYPE: unable to determine, POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Mario has displayed fearful behavior during his 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 him 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. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Mario may need more time and socialization to calm down at the shelter. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner _x_ New Hope Only Mario is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat and is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. Owner surrender describes Mario as “feral”..He may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. ?
