Titi is at risk for behavior concerns. Titi has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling.

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Titi has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him/her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
