07/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Zuma was brought into our care center as a stray so we have no previous history available. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: scared, nervous, allowed limited handling ENRICHMENT NOTES: 07/06/17 Lying in front of kennel with a relaxed body. Makes eye contact as I open the kennel door and remains in the front as I reach towards her. Tolerates petting along head and body while tilting ears and looking around the room. May be uncomfortable due to medical condition. 07/08/17 Curled up in the back of the cage, low body posture. Tense, leans away when approached. She flinches slightly but tolerates petting on her head with a slow approach. I offered her tuna and she slowly ate it. Seemed to slowly get more comfortable with me interacting with her. She slow blinks and stays at the back where she feels comfortable. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Zuma is lying towards the front of her kennel with a low body as the assessor approaches. Reaction when softly spoken to: Zuma makes eye contact when spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Zuma tilts her ears as the cage door opens and remains in place. Reaction to touch: Zuma tolerates petting along her head and body while leaning away and watching the assessor’s hand, body tense and ears flattened. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Zuma has displayed fearful behavior during her stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. 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. -Medical Condition Please note that this cat is being treated for a medical condition at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior.
RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only Zuma 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 an experienced, adult only home.
