07/18/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Teal was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Fractious, Growling. Trying to bite and scratching. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 07/16/17 Sitting crouched in back of kennel, ears forward. Allows petting along head and body while leaning in gently as his eyes look around the room. A but nervous after his first day, but remained calm and allowed all petting for our session. 07/17/17 Lying in back of kennel, crouched and tense with eyes open wide and ears forward, staring at the floor just head of her. She comes forward as I open the kennel door, ears remaining forward. I give her some treats and clicker train her – rewarded her each time she allows touch on her head or along body. I try petting her regularly – with no treats – and she whips her head around to watch my hand, retreating to the back of her kennel and crouching back down with flat ears. Growling and hissing when I walk by after session has ended. Needs more time to adjust. 07/18/17 Crouched and tense and at the back of the cage. She rises up, hisses and focuses on my movements when I pulled the cage cover up. Seems very uncomfortable. Not open to interacting today. She presses her body up against the back of the cage, hisses and doesn’t allow any contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Teal 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: Placement with a New Hope partner – Teal is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
