06/26/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: 1 senior and other cats Behavior toward strangers: Hides a lot, hisses Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Got along Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: May become defensive around strangers Litter box training: Yes Other notes: The owner believed he would do well in a home with seniors MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – very aggressive, charging/hissing/spitting for exam. Exam in net – limited physical. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Tony was hiding underneath his blankets. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tony does not respond. Reaction to cage door opening: Tony remains immobile. Reaction to touch: Tony remains motionless as the assessor uncovers him. When his body is exposed, he allows the assessor to pet him gently along his back. However when his head is exposed, his ears flatten against his head and he hisses and spits, no longer allowing contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Cannot evaluate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Tony has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Placement with a New Hope partner – Tony 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, scratch, bite, 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.
