Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zara’s previous owner reports she has never been around children. She has lived in a home with three adults and was relaxed and affectionate with the family. She approaches strangers and would lean on them to solicit petting. She allows the owner to handle her and enjoys being picked up. She was described as playful, friendly, and affectionate. She enjoys playing with strings, wands, and stuffed toys. Reaction to assessor: Zara was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Zara turns to face the assessor and makes eye contact with the assessor. She blinks after and has almond-shaped eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Zara remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Zara hisses as the assessor extends their hand, but sniffs it when placed in front of her. She was hesitant of contact, but allows gentle petting. Her ears tilt sideways, but she closes her eyes and lip licks during the interaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Zara tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her 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.
