10/30/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tonka’s former owner stated he has been around children ages 9 to 13 and is relaxed and exuberant around them. Tonka has never been around any other cats or dogs so it is unknown how he will react to them. Tonka has been described as playful, confident, mellow, friendly, fearful, aloof, affectionate, quiet and independant with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Tonka looks neutral in his cage when appproached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Tonka remains lying down on his cage bedding, relaxed body posture, alert with normal shape eyes. Reaction to touch: Tonka accepts the stroke, but seems to get agitated when touched on his lower back then began to hiss and swat at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Tonka solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to hiss and attempts to swat 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 Tonka becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
