06/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and playful Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Lived with a male cat and was relaxed and affectionate Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly and shy with a high activity level. Other notes: She enjoys being brushed, picked up/held, placed in a carrier and doesn’t mind being disturbed while resting/sleeping. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Wants to be pet on her terms, fractious for exam ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/15/17 At front of kennel, head-butting kennel door and making eye contact with soft eyes. She backs away and lowers her head when I attempt to touch her. Tolerates petting while leaning head and body away from me, ears tilted and eyes squinty. Needs more time to adjust. Added to socialization list. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Mishi was purring and rolling around playfully at the front of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mishi chirps then reaches out trying to get the assessor’s attention. Reaction to cage door opening: Mishi is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Mishi back peddles with her body lowered and chirps as the assessor pets her along her body. She rolls around playfully, nuzzles against the assessor and reaches out to give hugs. Reaction to being picked up: Mishi is calm, relaxed and has a soft body when held. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Energetic VOCAL: Talkative CHARACTER TYPE: Easy going, Demanding, Affectionate BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Beginner Mishi interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat can go to a beginner home. **Update** RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only When Mishi first arrived she was a little shy and wary of attention but slowly started to warm up. She started to show signs that she was in-heat and became very social and affectionate. A few days after her spay surgery she started to become more distant and less tolerant of handling. She currently tolerates limited petting before hissing and growling. Her body tenses up as soon as you interact with her and she raises her paw up as a warning to back away. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
