08/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Watermelon was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on his behavior in a home environment. He had a stiff body during intake, but attempted to flee when the counselor attempted to handle him. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very nervous, attempted to flee, limited exam EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage recently cleaned Reaction to assessor: Watermelon was hiding in his litter box. Reaction when softly spoken to: Watermelon does not respond and continues to hide. Reaction to cage door opening: Watermelon becomes tense. His ears bend down and he hisses. Reaction to touch: Watermelon fled from the assessor. He hisses when petting is attempted. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Cannot evaluate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Kitten Socialization – Watermelon is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. He may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes he has potential to warm up to humans. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people. Please speak to an adoption counselor to learn more about socialization techniques. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult only home – Watermelon tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He 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 an experienced, adult only home.
