1/30/18 Observed Behavior -attacking net, striking
Lying down by the back, flat behind his bedding. He looks up with dilated eyes and ears tilted to the side. His breathing becomes rapid and he starts to shiver as I extend my hand, very scared. He flinches when touched and presses his head, facing the cage wall. Needs more time to adjust.
Reaction to assessor:
Sully hissed, sitting upright at the back of the cage during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Sully becomes alert with eyes wide open and pupils dilated.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Sully he stiffens up in place, seems unsure, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Sully slowly leans away, but accepts the touch and closes eyes while low grumbling. He becomes agitated after a few strokes then attempts to bite the assessor’s hand.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Sully tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
