Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mitts was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder reports they found her outside and tried to bring her in their home. The finder reports she became aggressive and destructive in the home, and was no longer friendly. Mitts no longer allowed them to touch her, and will hiss and try to bite when petting was attempted. She was fearful upon intake and only allowed limited handling. Reaction to assessor: Mitts was inside a den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mitts looks out from a hole in the den and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Mitts lowers her body inside of the den and continues to blink. Reaction to touch: Mitts becomes alert, retreating to the back of the den as the assessor shifts the den to get a better look at her. She shifts to the side to avoid petting, but allows gentle stroke on her head and on her body with a slow approach. Her tail wraps tightly against her body and she appears unsure, lip licking, but does not display any further reaction. Placement Determination: Experienced, No Children Mitts tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
