Temporary waiver due to illness
Storm was brought in as a stray so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Friendly, well behaved during PE and allowed for all med handling.
Resting in litter box, eyes almost closed, ears a bit sideways, seemed really rundown. Lay in place when door opened, allowed and slowly leaned into pets, purred quietly. Sat calmly and allowed me to gently clean off nose. Sweet, but very lethargic.
Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor:
Storm is asleep on approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Storm wakes up and looks at the assessor with soft eyes and body.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Storm remains calm and relaxed.
Reaction to touch:
Storm lays in place, leans into the stroke and purrs.
Reaction to being picked up:
Storm sits calmly in the assessor’s arms and looks around.
Potential challenges comments:
Please note that Storm is being treated for an upper respiratory infection at the time of the behavior assessment. This condition may affect some of the behaviors shown during evaluation.
H – Healthy
Storm interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting.
