Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Beth was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was difficult to handle upon intake because she came in with a fracture. She was fractious during her initial medical exam and showed distance-increasing behavior. We may not be seeing any true behavior because of her medical condition and her behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves. Reaction to assessor: Beth was hiding under paper upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Beth does not react, but looks at the assessor and breathes heavily. Reaction to cage door opening: Beth remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Beth remains in place and allows brief petting on her head, but she hisses and swats near the hand afterwards with her ears tilted sideways. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Beth is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat 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.
