Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Pinky’s previous owner reports she is shy around strangers for a few minutes, but will open up afterwards. She has lived with a child and was fearful of him. She isn’t playful with adults or children, and may hide in fear at home. She isn’t bothered by having her coat brushed or disturbed while sleeping, but does not like being picked up for a long time and will struggle to be placed back down. She was best described as a mellow and fearful cat, with a low activity level. The owner says she is intuitive, however, and can tell when the owner is feeling down. Pinky will go to them and give them head-butts. Reaction to assessor: Pinky was curled up by the back, but remains calm and relaxed when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pinky looks at the assessor and blinks softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Pinky remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Pinky sniffs the assessor’s hand and leans against it afterward. She appears shy, but seems to appreciate chin and cheek rubs, leaning against the assessor’s hand for petting. She warms up and begins to purr, lifting her rear when pet on her lower back. She is very affectionate throughout the interaction, but is hesitant to come towards the front. Reaction to being picked up: Pinky remains soft, and calmly jumps back into her kennel after. Behavior Determination: Average Pinky interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents. Due to her previous owner stating she is fearful of children, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
