Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: 1 Adult Behavior toward strangers: Hides Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Lived with other cats and got along well with them Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Energy level/descriptors: Fearful MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Striking hissing EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Tulsa was pressed up against the back wall of the kennel with her head lowered. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tulsa lip licks, has wide eyes focused on the assessor and doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Tulsa flinched and his eyes dart around. Reaction to touch: Tulsa’s ears bend flat, she lowers her body and she hisses when the assessor approached her. She displays distance increasing behaviors and currently doesn’t allow any contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Tulsa 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. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Placement with a New Hope partner – Tulsa is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. He may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
