Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per her previous owner, Mini is shy, independent and will run and hide when strangers come over. After some time she will eventually come out of hiding however, she will stay away from that unknown person. She lived with other cats and was respectful of them but didn’t really interact with them. Mini has never lived with children, cats or dogs. Her owner says she doesn’t like to be picked up or touched and will hiss and run away. Mini has litter box accidents about 2-3 times a week and will go to the bathroom on the couch or owner’s bed. She goes inside her litter box when the owners aren’t home. Reaction to assessor: Mini was curled up in her litter box at the front of the kennel with her tail at her side. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mini makes eye contact then hisses at the assessor and lowers her head. Reaction to cage door opening: Mini remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Mini leans away with wide eyes focused on all movements and her ears bent flat then hisses as a warning. She shifts away contact with her tail lowered and currently allows no handling. Mini’s previous owner reports that she was eliminating (urinating and defecating) outside the litter box, 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 litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Mini be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litter box. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Mini is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and 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.
