Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Mila was brought into our care center as a stray, so there is no previous history available. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: scared Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Mila is sitting upright in the back of her kennel with a tense body as the assessor approaches. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mila makes eye contact and hisses when spoken to Reaction to cage door opening: Mila flattens her ears and remains in an upright position as the cage door opens. Reaction to touch: Mila backs away and hisses as the assessor’s hand reaches towards her. She tolerates petting while raising her paw and backing away, body low with flat ears. Attempts to retreat through her portal door. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Undeterminable VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Mila 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 him/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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner Mila is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
