06/02/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/02/15 16:46 Sweetie was brought here by a family member after her owner passed away. The family member told us that Sweetie is friendly with people and uses her litterbox. She allowed her to put her in a carrier and bring her here. She doesn’t think she has any health issues. Sweetie allowed us to scan (-) and photograph her but began hissing and thus we couldn’t collar her.
No Web Memo
06/05/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Sweetie looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Sweetie hisses at first, but remains lying down on her cage bedding. Reaction to touch: Sweetie stands with tail up, head-butts the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, after a few strokes she moderately nips at the hand then resumed to solicit attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Sweetie solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to nip 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 Sweetie becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
