11/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mark’s previous owner reports he has only lived with one person throughout his entire life. He has also lived with other cats and they got along with each other pretty well. The owner reports he is shy and tends to hide a lot. He does have a history of biting, but information on these incidences is unknown. The medical team reports he was nervous during his initial medical exam, hissing and growling. The enrichment team reports he was inside of a den, facing the back wall during their first interaction. He remained really quiet and still. They were unable to coax him out with wet food or treats. He was found outside of his den during the next day, but retreats as soon as he is approached for interaction. They attempted to coax him out with more treats, but he started to growl in response. Reaction to assessor: Mark was inside a den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mark peeks out from a hole on the den, looking with dilated eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Mark crouches over and becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Mark retreats to the far side of the den, hissing and lip licking as the assessor extends their hand. He does not allow touch; he hisses and strikes when petting was attempted, growling as the assessor pulls their hand away. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Mark is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. 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.
