TOYOTA – A1080479
Safe - 7-28-2016 Brooklyn
Toyota A1080479 – 4 month spayed gray kitten:
Reaction to assessor: Toyota does not come to front but remains neutral
When spoken quietly: Toyota does not come to front but remains neutral
Reaction to door cage opening: Toyota becomesd alert but remains motionless
Reaction to touch: Toyota becomes tense but allows petting
Try picking cat up: Toyota is tolerant of this type of handling but tense.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Toyota was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices she relaxed a little and I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. I was also able to pick her up and although she was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
