06/08/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/08/17 14:53 Orisa tolerated some handling such as transfering in and out of carrier. She allowed me to collar her while she was eating. During the medical exam a freeman net had to be utilized because she would not let anyone near her. She was hissing, biting and swatting the handler who wore safety gloves. To minimize handling she was left alone in her kennel with a privacy curtain until the driver had to take her out for transport. Safety gloves were used to have her walk inside the carrier while she was still inside the kennel.

06/11/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Orisa was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on her behavior in her previous home. Her finder trapped her and brought her to the care center. They report people in the building has been feeding her, but she displayed distance-increasing behaviors when approached. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Hissing, swatting, spitting and lunging when trying to remove from the carrier. Very limited exam through net as patient continued to swat and hiss. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Orisa looks at the assessor with dilated eyes and looks around, crouched over. Reaction when softly spoken to: Orisa continues to look around and does not approach the front. Reaction to cage door opening: Orisa becomes stiff and alert, meowing softly. Reaction to touch: Orisa hisses as the assessor extends their hand. She hisses again when pet gently, but she tolerates gentle strokes. She looks very uncomfortable, lying flat with her ears tilted. She hisses again for petting top stop and lifts her paw as a warning. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Cannot evaluate VOCAL: Somewhat chatty CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Orisa has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him/her 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Orisa tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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.
