Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Nubbins was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Lying in litterbox with a low, tense boy. Flinches when touched with the bear-claw and leans away, ears flattening and face tensing. Begins to rapid breathe. Nervous, needs more time to adjust.
Crouched in back of kennel, body and face tense. Makes eye contact with wide eyes and shifts weight. Pupils are dilated. Tolerates petting along head and body with the bear-claw while backing away, eyes widening further. Ears are completely flattened. Not interested in treats on the moment â€“ may be too focused on me and environment. Nervous, needs more time to adjust.
Cage is recently cleaned
Reaction to assessor:
Nubbins was tense and crouched inside his litter box, watching the assessor with wide, dilated eyes.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Nubbins lip licks and remains completely motionless when the assessor tried coaxing him forward.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Nubbins flinches and presses his body against the back wall.
Reaction to touch:
Nubbins lip licks and slowly turns his head, following the assessor’s hand as he pets him along his body. He’s very tense, continues lip licking and grumbles, then shifts away to the other side of the double kennel.
Potential challenges comments:
Nubbins has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Nubbins tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
