Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Indoor Litter box training: Y EVALUATION: Cage Condition: no change Reaction to assessor: Comes to front Reaction when softly spoken to: Stays at front soliciting attention Reaction to cage door opening: Remained soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: Allows head and chin despite the E-collar Reaction to being picked up: Not comfortable with pickup attempt ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful – Stewie 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 him/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. _x_ Uncomfortable with pick up – Stewie did not appear to like being picked up during their behavior evaluation. Please keep in mind there are many reasons why a cat may be uncomfortable with this type of handling and that this may not necessarily translate into a home environment. RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced cat parent – We recommend any future home with children be counseled in respecting the cat’s space and for the family to use care when picking him up, especially while he is adjusting to his new home.
