Behavior Assessment Date:
Next Test Date:
Wednesday Adams was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Nervous and tries to flee but no hissing or growling. Tense and once out of the box did well for handling.
Lying in litter box with a tense face and body. Tolerates petting along head and body while remaining very still. Turns head to watch my hand, eyes wide. Needs more time to adjust.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Wednesday Adams was crouched in the front of the kennel, watching the assessor with wide eyes.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Wednesday Adams squints and meows softly when the assessor tries coaxing her forward.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Wednesday Adams slowly rises up and backs away.
Reaction to touch:
Wednesday Adams meows softly and lowers her body when the assessor approaches. She accepts gentle pets on her head and body but slowly moves forward and tries to leave the kennel. The assessor was easily able to pick her up and place her back inside the kennel with no issue. She appreciate attention but still appears a little wary of her surroundings.
Reaction to being picked up:
Wednesday Adams was a bit tense when picked up but remained calm and allows all handling.
Potential challenges comments:
Wednesday Adams is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. She may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes she has potential to warm up to people. 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.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Wednesday Adams may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. She may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
