04/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: ShortBread was brought to the shelter as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. He seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that prevent placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful and currently does not much tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: was hiding when I approach cage (3) When spoken quietly: continues to hide (3) Reaction to door cage opening: becomes stiff, alert (3) Reaction to touch: hisses Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick the cat up Placement Determination: NewHope
