Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiger was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was fractious during her initial medical exam, quiet when in carrier but low growls. She displayed distance-increasing behaviors afterwards and resisted handling. Reaction to assessor: Tiger was inside a den, looking out from the opening. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tiger looks at the assessor and appears interested in interacting, but was hesitant. She slowly comes out of the den and comes to the front to sniff around. Reaction to cage door opening: Tiger becomes stiff and alert, retreating to the back with her tail lowered. Reaction to touch: Tiger sniffs the assessor’s hand and accepts brief petting on her head, but retreats back inside her den and growls. She looks out from the peep hold and blinks. She seems very cautious of her surroundings and tries to look out whenever there is noise. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Tiger tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
