Abigail’s previous owner reports she is shy around strangers for a few days and plays somewhat rough with them. She has been around a 9 year old child and was relaxed and affectionate with them, but also plays somewhat rough. She enjoys being brushed and picked up, and doesn’t mind when disturbed while sleeping. She was described as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, and quiet with a medium activity level. She tends to stay in her favorite spot at home and play with balls, strings, and pencils. Reaction to assessor: Abigail was crouched over by the front, looking around at her surroundings. Reaction when softly spoken to: Abigail hisses, but continues to sniff around and appears curious. Reaction to cage door opening: Abigail becomes alert and retreats to the back. Reaction to touch: Abigail was hesitant, but sniffs the assessor’s hand when extended slowly. She shifts away slightly, but allows gentle petting on her head and lays her head down. She growls when touched on her body, but doesn’t lift up her head. When petting stops, she blinks and lip licks. Behavior Determination: Experience Abigail tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Because her previous owner reports she tends to be rough when playing, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
