08/30/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owners, Petey hasn’t really been around strangers but has lived with a newborn child and a 13 year old and was tolerant of them. He started to have litter box accidents since the newborn child came home and tends to scratch on the furniture. Petey started urinating outside the litter box daily and this been going on for about 1 to 6 months. It could be due to the change in the environment and doesn’t mind being picked up or held. His owners describe him as quiet with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Petey was resting in his litter box at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Petey curls up tight and lip licks with his tail at his side. Reaction to cage door opening: Petey remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Petey is hesitant and lowers his head when the assessor approached. He lip licks when you approach and he is tense when pet along his body. He looks around wary of his surroundings, closes his eyes and leans in when rubbed on his cheeks. Reaction to being picked up: Petey has a tense body, lip licks and curls up in the assessor’s arms. Petey’s previous owner reports that he was eliminating (urinating) outside the litter box but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Petey be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litter box. Behavior Determination: Experience Petey 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.
