12/06/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mysha was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder stated she appeared friendly and allowed them to handle her just fine. She allowed handling upon intake, but her tail started to flicker after extended periods of handling. She continued to allow them to pet her, however. She also allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Mysha was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mysha turns her head to face the opening and blinks softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Mysha remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Mysha flinches slightly when initially touched, but accepts petting and warms up. She leans in for cheek rubs, but her body is a bit tense. Reaction to being picked up: Mysha attempts to shift away from pick up, but allows handling and remains calm. Please note that this cat is blind. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting her behavior. Behavior Determination: Average Mysha interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
