Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Mazy is fearul around strangers and will run and hide. He’s never been around children and he doesn’t play with adults. Mazy lived with 4 other cats and has been fearful around them and will run and hide. His previous owner reports that he is fearful and has been having accidents a few times a week by spraying outside his litter box for about 3 years. He struggles when held or being picked up and is afraid of being put inside a carrier. His owner describes his as shy and fearful with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Mazy was curled up on his blanket at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mazy turns his head towards the assessor, squints then curls up tight and lowers his head. Reaction to cage door opening: Mazy remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Mazy is hesitant of contact and leans away when the assessor extends his hand out. He slow blinks at the assessor and tolerates petting with a very slow approach on his head. His body is tense and slowly leans in when rubbed on his cheek but becomes uncomfortable when touched along his body and will whip around quickly. Mazy’s previous owner reports that he was eliminating (urinating) outside the litterbox but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Mazy be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litterbox(es). Behavior Determination: Experience No Children Mazy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
