09/01/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
According to the former owner he was living with a 6 year old, but was fearful and would hide. He did not play or interact with her. Reaction to assessor: Mr Boots looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Mr Boots remains lying down on his cage bedding, alert with soft eyes and a low tail flick. Reaction to touch: Mr Boots slowly sniffs the assessor’s hand then began to accept the stroke but shows no interest to the touch. Placement determination: Experience / no child Mr Boots tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
