Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Adults and 7 other cats Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Relaxed but plays rough Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, affectionate, and playful with a high activity level Other notes: He loves to be brushed and held. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Allows full exam, quiet, calm EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Shadow was curled up tight in the back of the cubby. Reaction when softly spoken to: Shadow makes eye contact, his ears bend flat and he seems very wary of his surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Shadow presses his body against the back wall of the cubby. Reaction to touch: Shadow lip licks and hisses with wide dilated eyes when the assessor extends his hand out. He tolerates petting, has a tense body and seems very uncomfortable when touched. The end of his tail flickers and he starts low growling until you leave him alone. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Shadow 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: Experienced, adult home only – Shadow 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 an experienced, adult only home.
