Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults and other cats Behavior toward strangers: Aloof, keeps to herself and allows all petting Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Lived with 13 other cats and was tolerant and mellow Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes, used a hooded litter box Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, affectionate and mellow and very high activity level. Other notes: He isn’t brother when someone tries to hold him or place him in the carrier. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Allowed all handling, slightly tense, hissed once ENRICHMENT NOTES: 05/10/17 Sitting crouched in front of kennel. Makes eye contact when spoken to and body tenses as I approach. Tolerates petting along head with a low body, retreating to back of the kennel. Needs more time to adjust. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage recently cleaned Reaction to assessor: Tincker was resting at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tincker was a little curious and slowly leaned forward to sniff the assessor with a lowered body posture. Reaction to cage door opening: Tincker lip licks then quickly moves to the back and presses his body up against the wall. Reaction to touch: Tincker leans away and slow blinks when the assessor extends his hand out. He flinched at first but tolerated very slow pets on his head and along his body. After a few soft passes he retreated to the other side of the double kennel with his tail lowered. He appears uncomfortable and lies flat in his litter box, trying to avoid eye contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Tincker tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
