07/01/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Wanda was low on the floor and remains neutral inside her cage. When softly spoken to, she looks up at the assessor but remains motionless. Reaction to cage door opening: Wanda becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Wanda does not allow touch; she meows loudly, focuses on the hand, hisses, swats, and growls after. Note: Wanda was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was receptive to touch and was easy to handle upon intake, but became defensive during her initial medical exam. She has not acclimated well into the care center environment, and continues to be defensive throughout interaction with the assessor. Behavior Determination: NH ONLY Wanda is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
