ENRICHMENT NOTES:: 02/08/19 Laying in the front of his kennel when the assessor approaches Jeremy is making eye contact with the assessor with widen eyes. When the kennel door opens, he gets up and sits in the center of the kennel. When given treats he eats them and growls. When pet with the scratcher he will hiss and whip his head back. He eventually pets the scratcher rand the assessor ends the interaction due to stress. The assessor gives him treats, toys and sprays feliway. 02/10/19 Lying in front of kennel, ears forward and eyes alert. She makes eye contact when spoken to, then rolls over onto her side and stretches while playing with her blanket. She stands up as I open the kennel door, then tolerates petting along her head and body with the scratcher while leaning in with energy and turning her head back to watch the claw as it passes along her lower back. She grumbles and begins to whip her head back with extended interaction, ears flattening. Conflicted behavior – may be stressed or showing mild signs of petting induced aggression.

Cage Condition:: Cage is neat

Reaction to assessor:: Jeremy is crouched in the center of his kennel eating when the assessor approaches. When lifting his kennel cover he pauses, looks at the assessor then continues to eat.

Reaction when softly spoken to:: Jeremy makes eye contact when softly spoken to.

Reaction to cage door opening:: Jeremy comes forward with a low body but his tail is high and lose when the kennel door opens.

Reaction to touch:: Jeremy allows all petting and leans in at first, after some time he will growl and whip his head back but does not display any other concerning behaviors.

Reaction to being picked up:: Jeremy allows the assessor to pick him up with no issue.

ACTIVITY LEVEL:: Moderate

VOCAL:: Quiet

CHARACTER TYPE: : Sweet,Curious

POTENTIAL CHALLENGES:: Pet-induced aggression

Potential challenges comments:: Initially Jeremy solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to growl at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of over stimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Jeremy becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experience

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

RECOMMENDATIONS:: No young children

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Jeremy solicits attention and allows petting but may be uncomfortable when pet for long periods of time or on certain areas like his back. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no young children.
