02/18/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Soup was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Soup was hunched over his litter box with wide eyes and his ears tilted forward. Reaction when softly spoken to: Soup is very wary of his surroundings and slowly leans forward to sniff the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Soup shifts away to the other side of the double kennel with his tail lowered. Reaction to touch: Soup is hesitant, looks around the kennel frantically and flinches when the assessor pets him. He remains immobile when rubbed/ petted, he has a tense/ stiff body and starts to lip lick. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/16/17 Tense, wary, skittish, wide-eyed, shifts back and forth between sides of kennel. When I slowly approached after placing a bowl of fresh wet food in cage, he did allow me to give head rubs, but he froze, didn’t really react. Didn’t force further touching or handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very shy, wary, allows handling with slow approach and towel restraint. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only – Soup 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 or her 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
