12/02/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Sarah was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sarah looks at the assessor and blinks slowly, but she comes to the front afterwards and lightly head-butts the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Sarah remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Sarah was a bit hesitant, but head-butts and begins to purr. She leans into petting and seems to appreciate it, but her tail flickers and thumps wildly. Reaction to being picked up: Sarah becomes tense and allows handling, but she starts to growl. She continues to allow petting afterwards, but her tail flickers harder and she blinks. Behavior Determination: Experience Sarah now interacts with the observer and she appreciates attention, but she 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 Sarah 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. Date: 11/29/15 Sarah was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. According to her finder she was friendly and easily went into the carrier Reaction to assessor: Sarah has wide eyes focused on the assessor and her ears perk up. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sarah’s body is curled up in the litter box. She doesn’t come forward and her tail starts to flicker. Reaction to cage door opening: Sarah inches back slowly away with her head lowered. Reaction to touch: Sarah licks lips and is tolerant of petting. Her tail continues to flicker but she warms up quickly and will solicit attention. Behavior Determination: Experience Sarah tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
