Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Christian was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was not handled upon intake and attempted to flee. He became fractious during his initial medical exam, but has been attention seeking in his cage throughout his stay in the care center. Reaction to assessor: Christian was calm, relaxed, and friendly by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Christian head-butts and rubs against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Christian remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Christian allows brief petting, but will swat and attempt to scratch randomly throughout the interaction. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Christian is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to swat at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Christian becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
