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: Recently cleaned Reaction to assessor: Barke was tense and crouched over her blanket with her tail curled up at her side. Reaction when softly spoken to: Barke seems wary; she looks around scanning her surroundings and doesn’t come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Barke remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Barke shifts away to the other side of the double kennel and lowers her body in her litter box. She has a tense/ stiff body and tolerates petting with a slow approach. She seems unsure, looks around the kennel frantically then lowers her head trying to avoid eye contact. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/21/17 Really cute older girl, has a great appetite. Quiet, sticks to the back of her kennel on her blanket mostly, sometimes will sit in her box. She tolerates petting and handling but is tense and wary here, makes it somewhat uncomfortable for her, she’ll flinch a little and shift away. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Nervous, tense, allows handling. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only – Barke 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.
