Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiger’s previous owner states that he typically ignores strangers. He has lived with another cat for three years and was respectful around her. He has not been around children or dogs. He isn’t bothered when his coat is brushed or when disturbed when sleeping, however, he is afraid when placed inside a carrier. He was described as mellow, confident, independent, and quiet with a low activity level. He tends to be in the same room as the owner when the owner is at home. Reaction to assessor: Tiger was inside a hidey den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tiger does not respond. Reaction to cage door opening: Tiger becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Tiger hisses, lip licks, and blinks as the assessor extends their hand. He sniffs it for a brief moment and hisses again. He does not allow touch; he strikes and growls loudly when petting was attempted. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Tiger is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, 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.
