Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per the previous owner, Tiger was described as independent and fearful. He was relaxed around the family and would allow petting. He lived with a Yorkshire terrier and was tolerant of the dog, but when the dog was near him he would become fearful and hide because the dog would chase him around the home. He normally hides when there are visitors. Reaction to assessor: Tiger was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tiger rolls onto his side and rubs his cheeks on his bedding. Reaction to cage door opening: Tiger comes to the front and remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Tiger leans on the assessor’s hand, head-butts, and his tail starts to sway. He hisses randomly when pet, but doesn’t strike out. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Initially Tiger solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to hiss 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 Tiger becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. 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.
