Reaction to touch: Alex head-butts the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. Reaction to being picked up: Allows the pickup then calmly walked back into the cage. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: **The cat’s behavior in kennel earned her a Beginner rating however, she seems to be in heat at the time of assessment, and the behavior presented at the time of evaluation may differ when the heat cycle is complete due to a change in hormonal balance.
