Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Misu’s previous owner states she is very shy and fearful of strangers. She has lived with children, but the children did not like to interact with her since she often growled and hissed at them. She does not mind having her coat brushed, being picked up, or being placed in a carrier by her owner. She was described as a shy and fearful cat, with a medium activity level. She plays with rubber balls and squeaky toys. She tends to follow the owner around at home and stays in the same room as the owner. Reaction to assessor: Misu was resting, but becomes alert upon approach and hisses at the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Misu hisses again and starts to growl, lip licking. Reaction to cage door opening: Misu charges to the front and spits. She focuses on the assessor’s hand on the cage door, lifting her paw to prepare to strike. Reaction to touch: Misu does not allow touch; she hisses and swats at the assessor’s hand and continues to growl. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Misu is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, 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.
