Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Owner Profile: Mickey was relaxed & affectionate towards children. Mickey played gently with the children. He has not lived with other animals so his behavior towards them remains unknown. Mickey is said to be playful, friendly & affectionate. Mickey is litter box trained. Notes: At the time of the assessment was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get 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. I was also able to pick him up. Although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. 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: retreats (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
