03/16/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Spice Girl was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Will flee ENRICHMENT NOTES: 03/13/17 Hiding under blanket with a low body posture, looking out with dilated eyes. Focuses on me with ears tilted & flinches when door is opened, backing away. Sprayed Feliway and left alone for now. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Spice Girl keeps her body low and was curled up in the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Spice Girl tries to avoid eye contact, starts breathing heavily and doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Spice Girl remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Spice Girl lip licks when approached, her eyes widen and she flinches when touched. Her body is tense/stiff, she seems uncomfortable and she sinks into her litter box trying to avoid contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful- Spice Girl has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her 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: Experienced, adult home only- Spice Girl tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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 her new home and family at her own pace.
