Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ophelia was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was nervous throughout the intake process and resisted handling. She would growl, hiss, and struggle when touched. She was also difficult to handle during her initial medical exam. Reaction to Assessor: Ophelia becomes alert upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ophelia attempts to sniff the assessor by the front. Reaction to cage door opening: Ophelia comes to the front, but starts to growl when she notices a neighboring cat. Reaction to touch: Ophelia head-butts lightly and starts to eat. She stiffens in place and continues to growl whenever she sees another cat. When continuing to pet her, she hisses and focuses on the other cat. The interaction was stopped to reduce stress levels for the cat. Note: While Ophelia seems to have warmed up to her human caretakers in the care center, she may be uncomfortable around other cats. She has been noted to focus and growl at other cats, and may re-direct her frustrations onto her human caretakers. Due to this behavior, we recommend Ophelia goes to a home with no other cats OR into a multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Ophelia tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
