02/10/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Pacific was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Pacific was resting in his litter box at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pacific lifts his head up to make eye contact, his ears rotate and he doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Pacific remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Pacific lip licks and looks around frantically when the assessor approaches. He remains immobile and allows gentle petting along his body with a slow approach. He closes his eyes when rubbed and slowly relaxes. Reaction to being picked up: Pacific was tense when picked up then got antsy and leaped away. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/08/17 Lying at very back of cage, quiet, alert, allows touching all over, leans away but doesn’t get up and move. Stays quiet throughout. Is eating well and used box appropriately overnight. Old guy, thin. All cats in the litter are exhibiting similar behaviors, nervous and wary but allowing handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Nervous, tries to flee, no hissing, growling or swatting. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced cat parent – Pacific may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Please note that Pacific is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation.
