03/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Mausi was brought in on behalf of her owner, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was receptive to all handling during intake and did not display any signs of aggression. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Scared, allows handling ENRICHMENT NOTES: 3/8/17 – Severe dental disease. In feral den on approach, eyes dilated. Remained laying in place when den was rotated. Allowed all pets, slightly lowered head, continued to look around. Did not move or vocalize throughout interaction. Sprayed feliway. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Mausi is hiding in her cat den. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mausi continues to hide. Reaction to cage door opening: Mausi continues to hide. Reaction to touch: Mausi remains immobile as the den was rotated to the front. She looks at the assessor with wide, dilated eyes, and allows petting on the head and body. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Mausi has displayed fearful behavior during their 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 her 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: Please note that this cat has a severe medical condition so we may not be seeing any true behavior and behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves. Mausi tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parent
