09/25/2017 AT RISK MEMO
A1126168 Paprika is at-risk with an adult only determination. He appears neutral when approached, but becomes stiff and alert during interactions and will try to shift away to avoid contact. He allows gentle petting, but will start to growl and presses his body against the far back corner. He does not appear to be thriving in the stressful shelter environment.

09/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Paprika was brought in with limited information on his behavior history in a home environment. He lived with adults and other cats and was reported to eat both wet and dry food. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Subjective: allows for medical handling EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Paprika makes eye contact with the assessor and appears calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Paprika continues to look at the assessor and remains in place. Reaction to cage door opening: Paprika becomes stiff and alert and wraps his tail tightly against his body. Reaction to touch: Paprika allows petting with a slow approach and averts his gaze. He begins to growl while attempting to pet him on his body and presses his body against the back corner of his kennel. He appears very uncomfortable, but does not display any further reaction. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Cannot evaluate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Shy, Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Paprika has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him 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: – Experienced, adult home only – Paprika tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He will need time to warm up to his new home and family. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
