09/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – BEGINNER
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Simba was brought in with limited information on his behavioral tendencies in a home environment. He was reported to never display any aggressive behaviors to anyone, including children. He was litter box trained and only had accidents if the litter box was not cleaned. He was very easy to handle upon intake and was very calm during his initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Simba was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Simba chirps and comes to the front, purring and soliciting attention. Reaction to cage door opening: Simba remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Simba head-butts, continues to purr, and leans in for petting. He is very affectionate throughout the interaction. He will pat the assessor with his paw gently when petting stops and continue soliciting. Reaction to pick up: Simba was tense with pick up (may be due to girth), but allows handling. Placement Determination: Beginner Simba interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat can go to a beginner home.
