09/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Smiley’s previous owner reports she is shy around strangers who visit the home. She hides from them, but slowly warms up to them after a few hours. She has been around children ages 6 years and younger and was tolerant of petting, but may keep her distance. She is aloof around adults and affectionate sometimes. She doesn’t mind having her coat brushed, but is fearful of being picked up and placed into a carrier. She was described as shy, affectionate, and mellow. She enjoys being on her own and in quiet places, lounging around the home. Reaction to assessor: Smiley was by the back, alert and looking around at her surroundings. Reaction when softly spoken to: Smiley leans against the wall and rubs her cheeks against it, slowly coming forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Smiley remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Smiley head-butts lightly, leans in for cheek rubs, and begins to purr. She seems to appreciate attention, but her tail starts to sway and she becomes tense when the assessor moves or pets her too quickly. When overwhelmed, she focuses on the assessor’s hand and nips the air close to the hand. She will continue to allow petting at a slow and gentle pace. Reaction to pick up: Smiley is a bit tense, but remains calm when held. Behavior Determination: Experience Smiley interacts with the observer and appreciates attention, but may get overwhelmed with quick movements. She may also be fearful or stressed in the shelter environment. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents. She may feel more comfortable in a home without children, but was tolerant of them in her previous home so we recommend any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
