02/21/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Adults, 2 turtles, 1 bird, 8 dogs and other 14 cats EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cat hiding under bogus paper Reaction to assessor: Baha was hiding underneath her bogus paper at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Baha shifts around under the paper and slowly peeped her head out when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Baha remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Baha keeps her body lowered, seems unsure of contact and flinches when the assessor touched her. She has a tense/ stiff body and she remains immobile when the assessor pets her along her back. She seems uncomfortable and quickly shifts away trying to avoid any more contact. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/21/17 Frightened, trembles at times. Eludes touching, shifts from one side of the kennel to the other via the porthole to avoid. But, with a very slow, gentle approach I was able to get her to not run away and sniff my extended fingers. While sitting outside the kennel with the door closed I sat and spoke softly to her and she eased a little, slow blinked some. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Tries to escape, but no attempts to bite ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful- Baha has displayed fearful behavior during their 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. RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only- Baha 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
