He lived with a 4 year old child and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant of her but plays rough and scratches her. He hasn’t bit anyone. BEHAVIOR Lulu scratches the couch and mattress but didn’t have a scratching post. He’s relaxed in the car. He doesn’t mind when someone puts him in a carrier or wakes him up. He struggles during baths and nail trims. He doesn’t mind being held for 2-3 minutes but then wiggles away. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Lulu’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, and high energy. He follows his family and sometimes sits in their laps. He plays with balls. Lulu lived inside and slept on a cat bed. He ate dry food. He’s littertrained, doesn’t have accidents, and used a hooded box with clumping litter.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lulu’s former owner stated he is shy with new people at first. He lived with a 4 year old child and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant of her but plays rough and scratches her. Also, describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, and high energy. Reaction to assessor: Lulu immediately comes soliciting at the front of the cage. Reaction to door opening: Lulu remains sitting upright at the front of the cage, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Lulu head-butts the assessor’s hand, purrs, and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, during the touch his body begn to twitch with a low tail flick. He then modertaly nips at the hand and swats (with no calws). Reaction to Being Picked up: He calmly jumps back into his cage. Placement determination: Experience/ no child Initially Lulu solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to moderately nip and swat (with no claws) 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 Lulu becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
