10/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Porthos was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Porthos immediately stops moving as the assessor approach, keeps his body low and watches with wide focused eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Porthos hisses then retreats to the back and presses up against the back wall. Reaction to cage door opening: Porthos remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Porthos lies motionless and closes his eyes when the assessor extends his hand out. He tolerates petting but lip licks then tries to bury his head behind his blanket avoiding eye contact. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Porthos tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
