04/15/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Kitty looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Kitty remains crouched down at the back of his cage, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Kitty avoids contact, hisses with ears down, and yowls at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: NH ONLY Kitty is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
