Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Piper and at the time he had his eyes wide and dilated. Tense, flinches when touched on back. Curled up in the back. Licks lips. Flinches and lowers body while petting. Reaction to assessor: Piper does not come to front but remains neutral When spoken quietly: Piper does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: Piper starts to retreats Reaction to touch: Piper’s eyes widen and he retreats further back Try picking cat up: Piper tries to flee Behavior Determination: Experience No Child At the time of the assessment Piper was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children. Update 02/07: Although Piper is tolerant to gentle petting when approached slowly, he does not appear to be thriving in the shelter environment. He hisses when approached and would retreat during an interaction. He has not warmed up to his caretakers and continues to display fearful behavior in his kennel. We feel that it is Piper’s best interest to move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
