06/10/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/10/15 13:50 Intake Behavior: Unicorn was brought into the care center as a stray. He sat in the front of the carrier and did not retreat when carrier was approached. When the carrier door was opened, Unicorn tried to walk out but retreated when the door was closed. The counselor opened the door and introduced the scanner to Unicorn. Unicorn sniffed the scanner and tried to walk out of the carrier. When the scanner touched the top of his head he would retreat; after a few attempts he backed up to the back of the carrier. No other handling was attempted to avoid further stress to Unicorn.

Notes: Unicorn was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Unicorn is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner. Reaction to assessor: comes to the front of the cage, soliciting, rubbing against the cage front When spoken quietly: stays at front, continues soliciting attention Reaction to door cage opening: remains soft & relaxed Reaction to touch: solicits petting and attention Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling.
