Animal Name: Nutella
Age: 9 Weeks
Breed: Domestic Longhair
Spayed / Neutered: No
Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Nutella was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Curled up by the back with siblings, looking out with dilated eyes. Becomes stiff when door opens, but remains immobile. Hesitant of touch and lowers body, but allows gentle petting and blinks softly. May shift away to avoid additional petting, but tolerant of contact. Needs more time to adjust, but has potential to warm up.
Cuddled up with siblings in litter box, alert, eyes dilated. Ate a few offered treats, played energetically when given toys. Became alert when door opened. Initially fled to avoid touch, then hunched in place and tolerated pets. Brief, minor hissing when first touched. Fled to other kennel after door closed, then came slowly back, started eating more treats. Sprayed feliway.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Nutella remains tense, crouched position with head down at the back of the cage during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Nutella becomes alert with eyes wide open.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Nutella stiffens up, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Nutella hisses at the assessor’s hand, increases distance, but when touched she remains immobile in place.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Nutella 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 an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
