09/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Quest was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was by the front of her carrier upon intake and allowed the counselor to conduct all handling. She became nervous during her initial medical exam, and displayed distance-increasing behaviors when trying to restrain. Reaction to assessor: Quest was crouched by the back, becoming stiff and alert when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Quest looks at the assessor with soft eyes and arches her back against the kennel wall, leaning against her side. Reaction to cage door opening: Quest looks at the opening, but remains calm. Reaction to touch: Quest head-butts and arches her back when pet softly on her head and body. She leans in and seems to appreciate attention, purring and rubbing against various objects in her kennel. However, her tail remains lowered and she grumbles randomly throughout the interaction. She continues to rub against objects in her kennel and does not appear to be agitated with continuous petting. Behavior Determination: Experienced Quest appears to appreciate attention and petting but she emits a growl-like sound randomly during the interaction. This sound does not appear to be a warning or a distance-increasing behavior, and none of her body language matches that normally seen when a cat is growling, so at this time we are unsure how to interpret this response. We recommend using care when interacting with Quest, especially while she is still adjusting to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
