Animal Behavior Saved At: 8-Oct-2017 14:16:53.000 Animal ID: 8906 Animal Name: Pepsi Age: 2 Years 1 Week Tag Number: Breed: Domestic Short Hair Gender: Female Spayed / Neutered: Yes Handler: Observer: Behavior Assessment Date: 10/8/2017 Retest Date: Retest Reason: Next Test Date: KNOWN HISTORY: Pepsi was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on her behavior history or tendencies in a home environment. She was easy to handle during the intake process. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior -calm, allows exam Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Pepsi was eating upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pepsi looks at the assessor momentarily, and then resumes to eat. Reaction to cage door opening: Pepsi pauses and sniffs the assessor. Reaction to touch: Pepsi was hesitant of touch and appears to dislike the smell of the assessor’s glove. With a slow approach, she allows petting and arches her back, but after a few strokes she meows and hisses, and then retreats into her cubby. She comes back out and investigates around her cubby, continuing to allow soft and gentle strokes, but she hisses again and focuses on movement in the room. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy Curious POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Pet-induced aggression Potential challenges comments: Pepsi initially seemed to appreciate attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and retreats from further contact. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Pepsi becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experience Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Pepsi tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
