06/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: 1 adult Behavior toward strangers: Hides Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Lived with other cats and got along well with them Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Energy level/descriptors: Hisses and displays distance increasing behaviors. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Reluctant to come out of carrier, hissed extensively and had exam in net but never became aggressive ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/21/17 Lying in back of kennel with a low body, head pressed against kennel wall. She tolerates petting along her head and body while licking her lips and turning her head to watch the bear-claw while she hisses. Needs more time to adjust. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Luna was lying completely flat in her litter box with wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Luna is alert, focused and remains immobile in her litter box. Reaction to cage door opening: Luna keeps her body low and slowly inches away. Reaction to touch: Luna’s ears bend flat and she leans away when the assessor extends his hand out. She rears up, hisses and displays distance increasing behaviors when approached. She seems very uncomfortable, starts breathing more rapidly and currently doesn’t allow any contact. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Luna 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: Placement with a New Hope partner – Luna is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
