Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Currant was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was clawing inside her carrier, trying to get out of it during intake. The medical team reports she was hissing and attempting to flee during her initial medical exam as well. Reaction to assessor: Currant had a low body posture and was stiff and alert upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Currant focuses on the assessor, but her eyes start to dart back and forth from the surroundings and the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Currant lowers her body even more. Reaction to touch: Currant was hesitant of contact, but inches her head forward to sniff the assessor’s hand. She shifts away as the assessor extends their hand to pet her, attempting to avoid touch, but allows gentle petting on her head and body as she squeezes herself into the back corner, looking around for an exit. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Currant 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.
