Exam Type BEHAVIOR
The former owner stated that around strangers Tommy very shy and does not interact with people he does not know. Tommy has not lived with children. Tommy has never been around dogs or other cats so the owner has no idea how Tommy would react around them. Reaction to assessor: Tommy looks tense in the cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Tommy remains standing at the front of the cage, stress meowing in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Tommy accepts the stroke, but seems conflicted then began to nip, hiss, and swat while he solicits attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Tommy tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
