Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Viejito is shy around strangers. He’s never been around children and he plays somewhat rough with adults. Viejito lived with 4 other cats and has been in altercations with the other cats by swatting, growling, and hissing. His previous owner reports that he has been having accidents a few times a week by spraying outside his litter box for about 3 years. He isn’t bothered when held or being picked up and is afraid of being put inside a carrier. His owner describes his as shy and independent with a low activity level. He was kept mostly outdoors and used a vertical scratching post made of wood. Reaction to assessor: Viejito was at the back of the kennel curled up on his blanket with wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Viejito’s ears bend flat and he starts to grumble at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Viejito remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Viejito has wide, dilated eyes fixated on the assessor’s movements. He leans away when the assessor extends his hand out then grumbles when pet on his head. His body is tense, he seems uncomfortable and he slowly turns his head away while lip licking. Viejito’s previous owner reports that he was eliminating (urinating) outside the litterbox but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Viejito be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litterbox(es). Behavior Determination: Experience No Children Viejito 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
