05/27/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/27/15 11:11 Intake Behavior: Graphite sat tense in the carrier. He was walked into the care center’s carrier on his own. The counselor used a carrier with a top loading door and she was able to scan and collar him without the him moving or showing any aggressive behavior. Graphite allowed petting on his back but he did not solicit attention or show that he enjoyed the petting. The counselor was able to pick Graphite up and place him on the counter for one picture. Graphite then walked across the counter, hissed, and jumped down. The counselor gently placed a towel over Graphite, he did not move and allowed the counselor to pick him up and place him back in the carrier through the top door.
No Web Memo
05/29/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Graphite 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 very fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and remains motionless when the kennel was open and as I got closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices he relaxed a little and I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. Although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children. Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but remains neutral (2) When spoken quietly: does not come to front but remains neutral (2) Reaction to door cage opening: remains motionless (2) Reaction to touch: seems indifferent to my presence and touch (2) Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Placement Determination: Experience no child
