ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/05/17 In back of kennel with a low body and wide eyes, ears tilted. Tolerates petting while licking lips and looking around the room. 06/06/17 Lying in back of kennel with a low body and head lowered, tail wrapped around litter box. He tolerates petting along head and body while breathing rapidly and flattening his ears, eyes wide. Not interested in treats today. 06/07/17 Squished in his litter box, tense body. Alert and very wary of his surroundings. His eyes dart around the kennel, didn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. He backs away and hisses. His tail thrashes around and he raises his paw up as a warning to back away. Seems very stressed, not open to interacting. Sprayed feliway and left him alone. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Rubie has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Placement with a New Hope partner – Rubie is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
