Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Behavior Determination: Adult Only
Yeti is at-risk with an adult only determination. Her previous owner reports she is shy and spends most of her time hidden in the home. She hisses when approached for interaction and focuses on the person. Although she allows gentle petting with a slow approach, she appears very uncomfortable and starts to grumble.
My medical notes are…
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Assessment Date: 10/2/2017 KNOWN HISTORY: Yeti was brought in with limited information on her behavior history and tendencies in a home environment. She lived in a home with adults, seniors, and with other cats. She was reported to be shy and tends to hide a lot. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Behavior: Nervous ENRICHMENT NOTES: 10/2/2017 Sitting hunched in front of kennel, tail wrapped around body and body tense. She tolerates petting along her head and body while backing away and pulling her whiskers back, whiskers flattening. Leans away from touch. Uncomfortable- needs more time to adjust. 10/1/2017 Lying in back of kennel , head facing the wall. He tolerates petting along his head and body while turning to face me and licking his lips. Tail is wrapped around body. Nervous â€“ needs more time to adjust. Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Yeti looks at the assessor with almond shaped eyes, but her ears tilt slightly sideways. Reaction when softly spoken to: Yeti hisses and continues to look at the assessor while blinking her eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Yeti becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Yeti was hesitant of touch and shifts away to avoid petting, and then starts to grumble. She allows gentle petting on her head and body, but she remains tense and appears uncomfortable. Reaction to being picked up: Did not attempt. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy Timid Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful Potential challenges comments: Yeti has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and appears uncomfortable with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her 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. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experienced, adult only Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable RECOMMENDATIONS: None BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Yeti tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to her new home and family. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
10/02/17 Behavior: Adult only
