12/04/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Pebbles was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was nervous upon intake, attempting to flee, but allowed the counselor to handle her. The medical team reports she was a little shy initially, but became friendlier during her initial medical exam and allowed all handling. Please note that Pebbles 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. Reaction to assessor: Pebbles was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pebbles makes eye contact with the assessor, but then she averts her gaze. Reaction to cage door opening: Pebbles curls up, wrapping her tail against her body and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Pebbles was hesitant initially, but allows petting. She begins to warm up, her body softens, and appears to like chin and cheek rubs. Reaction to pick up: Pebbles remains calm and allows handling. Behavior Determination: Experienced Pebbles tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
