08/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tie Dye was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was found inside of an apartment building, roaming the hallways. Upon intake, she had a soft body and would rub her head against the counselor. She allowed handling and did not resist, retreat, or vocalize. She was tense and nervous during her initial medical exam, but also allowed handling. Reaction to assessor: Tie Dye was by the front, soliciting attention. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tie Dye continues head-butt and rub against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Tie Dye remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Tie Dye head-butts, leans in for petting, and begins to purr. She turns around to look at the assessor’s hand at times and nips gently when rubbed along her back. The base of her tail pilo-erects and waves back and forth when touched on her lower back, but she seems to appreciate petting on her head. She continues to solicit attention when rubbed gently. Reaction to being picked up: Tie Dye remains calm and purrs when held. Behavior Determination: Experience Tie Dye solicits attention and tolerates petting but may nip gently when pet too roughly on her back. She seems to tolerate touch on her back as long as it is very gentle. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Tie Dye becomes overstimulated. Due to her tendency to nip, we feel that any future home with young children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
