12/27/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sully’s previous owner stated that he is shy around strangers. He will hide for a few hours until he is comfortable enough to come out. He lived in a home with a 9 and 5 year old and plays exuberantly with them. The owner did not allow the 9 year old to play with him because she plays too rough, but the 5 year old plays well with him. He loves to be brushed and was described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and mellow. He has a medium activity level and likes to cuddle and sleep with the owner. He allows to be held, but will try to flee when held too long. Reaction to assessor: Sully was inside of a box, with his head sticking out upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sully becomes alert and starts to stress meow and whine. He rubs his cheeks on the box after some time, but still seems cautious. Reaction to cage door opening: Sully looks around and is wide-eyed. Reaction to touch: Sully sniffs the assessor’s hand and head-butts, but remains stiff and is cautious of the assessor’s hand. He growls during the interaction, but seems to appreciate petting. However, he swipes the hand randomly and sets it down without nails, and will nip. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Sully tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
