Animal Name: Megaman
Age: 3 Years 1 Week
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Spayed / Neutered: Yes
Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Megaman was brought in as a stray so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Sitting up on bedding towards back, soft eyes and body, looking around. Lay down after a while, ate offered treats, then sat up and looked around for more. Allowed, briefly leaned into pets, distracted by treats.
Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor:
Megaman rests on his bedding towards the back, looking at the assessor with soft eyes and body.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Megaman lays in place, continues to look at the assessor.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Megaman remains calm and relaxed.
Reaction to touch:
Megaman leans into head pets and closes his eyes, then becomes agitated when pet along the body and begins to nip at the assess-a-hand.
Potential challenges comments:
Initially Megaman solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to nip at the assessor’s hand. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Megaman becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Megaman 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 an experienced, adult only home.
