12/05/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Oliver’s previous owner reports he is friendly and outgoing around strangers, rubbing against them. He has lived with a child and was respectful around this child. He plays exuberantly with adults, but is gentle with children. He also lived with another cat and was respectful with this cat. He isn’t bothered when picked up, held, or being placed in a carrier. He was described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and quiet with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Oliver was resting inside a den upon approach, with one of his paws sticking out from the opening. Reaction when softly spoken to: Oliver shifts inside of his den slightly, but doesn’t peek out from a hole and remains in place. Reaction to cage door opening: Oliver sticks his paw back inside the den. Reaction to touch: Oliver gets up and looks at the assessor’s hand when placed by the opening. He sniffs the hand, but retreats when petting was attempted. He hisses once and focuses on the hand, shifting away to avoid contact, but allows gentle petting with a very slow approach. He remains tense and lip licks during the interaction. Oliver’s previous owner reports he was defecating outside the litter box for over three years, but we are unaware if any modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Please note that the owner brought him to the vet, and they stated it was because he had irritable bowel syndrome. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a home environment after treatment for the medical condition has been completed, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. Behavior Determination: Experience Oliver tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Although his previous owner reports he has done well in a home with children, due to his stress levels in the care center, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
