Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Name and A#: Spell KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Indoor Litter box training: Y EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cat hiding in back of kennel Reaction to assessor: Watchful but did not come forward Reaction when softly spoken to: Did not come forward Reaction to cage door opening: Did not approach door Reaction to touch: Allowed assess-a-hand to rub his head and neck. Further retreated when gloved hand was offered Reaction to being picked up: Would not allow pick up ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back, Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Spell has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and would retreat with extended handling. 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: _x_ Experienced cat parent – Spell tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
