05/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owners, Sam has lived with young children and was relaxed, affectionate, and played gently with them. Sam has spent a few days around a kitten and would hiss at him and was never introduced to another dog. He often has litter box accidents and will defecate when he rides in a car. Sam is described as being fearful, quiet and has a medium activity level. When home Sam stays hidden and likes to play with balls, strings and stuffed toys. Reaction to assessor: Sam’s alert at the back of the kennel with wide eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sam lip licks and lies motionless at the back of the kennel. Reaction to cage door opening: Sam remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Sam is a little tense and allows petting all over. He lowers his head slowly and doesn’t come forward. Reaction to being picked up: Sam is wary of his surroundings and has a stiff body when held. When placed down he retreats to the back and lip licks. Sam’s previous owner reports that he was eliminating (urinating and defecating) on their couch and clothing, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Sam be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litter box. Behavior Determination: Experience Sam may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
