11/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Oswego was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Oswego was lying down at the front of the kennel and slowly turns and makes eye contact at the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Oswego slowly gets up and moves to the back with his tail lowered when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Oswego remains neutral and lies down with his paws folded under his body. Reaction to touch: Oswego watches the assessor with wide eyes and slowly leans his body back when the assessor approaches. His body is tense and he remains immobile when pet along his body with a slow approach. After a couple soft passes he starts to shift away and retreats into his litter box. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Oswego tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
