08/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Waltz came into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was tense and timid at intake and during his initial medical exam, trying to flee from human interaction. He seems to have acclimated somewhat to the care center and to his human caretakers, as he is now willing to interact, but he remains fearful and needs a slow approach. Reaction to assessor: Waltz is lying in his litterbox, alert and slightly tense, when the assessor approaches. Reaction to cage door opening: Remains motionless. Reaction to touch: With some soft talking and coaxing, Waltz tentatively approaches the assessor’s outstretched hand. He allows petting but remains slightly tense. Placement determination: Experience Waltz] tolerates attention and petting but appears to be fearful and stressed in the shelter, and may have limited or possibly negative associations with humans to this point. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents who will allow him to warm up to his new family at his own pace. Familiarity with the socialization process and the building of positive associations is recommended.
