12/14/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Betty comes to the front of the cage – soliciting attention. Reaction when softly spoken to: Betty stays at the front – continues to solicit attention and rub against the cage front. Reaction to cage door opening: Betty remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Betty solicits petting and attention – rubbing against the assessor’s hand. After a few moments, she becomes overstimulated and begins to nip gently. Betty is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Betty becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Behavior Determination: Experienced. Betty may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. She may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
