Bandet was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The medical team reports he was tense and nervous during his initial medical exam, displaying distance-increasing behaviors during handling. The enrichment facilitator reports he was growling inside his den during their first interaction, and was unable to coax him out.
Reaction to assessor: Bandet comes to the front and meows loudly, sounding somewhat whining and somewhat demanding.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Bandet begins to meow more softly and rubs his head onto the cage door, soliciting attention.
Reaction to cage door opening: Bandet greets the assessor by the opening and sniffs.
Reaction to touch: Bandet accepts petting on his head and body, but his body is tense and he attempts to push through the assessor to explore outside of his kennel. When blocked off, he meows loudly and tries to move around the assessor. He allows all petting during the interaction, but seems focused on trying to leave the kennel.
Reaction to being picked up: Bandet grumbles slightly, but he allows handling. After a moment he wiggles to leap back inside his kennel.
Behavior Determination: Experienced
Bandet tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
In den, couldn’t coax out, growling. Sprayed Feliway and left treats. No intake notes entered yet.
Won’t stay in den today! Out, active, vocal. Den removed. Doing well today, looking to interact. Has a lot of energy and is nervous, needs some release. Allowing all petting, pushing head in for more. Needs interactive toys.
Quieter today, not quite as busy, a little calmer. Gave him an interactive ball, and he immediately began playing with it. Amazing cat, leonine face, seems much bigger than his 13.4lbs, sturdy, muscular. Fascinating cat. Should be moving to adoptions!
In Rm. 1, really stands out though he’s in a bottom cage in the corner. Social and attention-seeking, active, may be inclined to play a little on the rough side so an experienced adopter would be beneficial. Prefers to be pet on the head, really leans in. Gave some treats and new toys.
Had his first play session in the interaction room today, did really well. After spending some checking out the space, he spent most of his time focused on me, social and friendly. Didn’t show too much interest in toys (tried a wand and bell toy, as well as a crinkle tunnel, which he went through once). Was interested in watching other cats he could see, but stayed neutral. No problem moving from cage to room and back. Did really well. Big, sturdy, really handsome and impressive cat. Once and a while he’d grumble, but he is a vocal cat. Looking foward to further time in the room with him going forward. Sent in vids and a new profilie photo.
Starting to sneeze, nose looks runny. Loves treats. Vocal, whines sometimes, attention-seeking, sometimes backs off of body being pet while in the cage. Really impressive cat that someone with experience will really appreciate. Gave Temptations treats.

Sick, so he wasn’t very lively today. Accepted petting, but doesn’t really display any type of reaction. He closes his eyes while I stroked him gently on his head and body.
