07/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Smokey’s previous owner reports he has been socialized with young children and got along well with them, playing gently. He is friendly and outgoing around strangers, and was relaxed and affectionate with the resident cats he lived with. Smokey enjoys getting brushed and being picked up and held. He doesn’t like going into carrier, so the owner wrapped him around in a towel to easily place him inside. He was described as friendly, playful, affectionate, and very loving with a medium activity level. He usually follows the family around at home and seeks attention. Reaction to assessor: Smokey was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Smokey wakes and looks at the assessor with squinty eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Smokey remains motionless and blinks. Reaction to touch: Smokey was hesitant, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. He lowers his body and twitches when touched on his back, but remains in place and allows gentle petting. He appears very uncomfortable throughout the interaction and lip licks. Behavior Determination: Experience Smokey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and any future home with young children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
