05/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Rocky was brought in with limited information on his behavior in his several home. He lived in a home with elderly owners and was reported to have bitten multiple times over the past 7 years. The most recent incident took place while the owner was sleeping, but details of the incident including possible triggers and severity are unknown. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Fractious, hissing, scratching, hissing EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Rocky was lying down and relaxed at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Rocky lip licks then comes forward to greet the assessor. He sniffs then gently rubs his whole body up against the kennel furnishings. Reaction to cage door opening: Rocky flinches then hisses and lowers his body. Reaction to touch: Rocky is very wary of his surroundings but slowly relaxes once he sniffs the assessor. He accepts petting, leans in for rubs and nudges the assessor’s hand for attention. His body is relaxed and he rolls over on his side when rubbed on his cheeks. Reaction to being picked up: Rocky was a little tense when picked up but remained calm and allows all handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Calm, Affectionate RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Rocky interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. However due to Rocky’s previous bite history, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
