Banjo was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Subjective: Friendly and well behaved during PE and med handling,
Curled up in litter box, head down, face hidden. Lay in place when door opened. Tolerated head pets, then stood and retreated to back when pet on body. Lay down again, hid face in corner.
Curled up at back, stiff posture, eyes dilated. Lay in place when door opened, turned and pressed face into corner. Allowed, eventually leaned into pets. Lifted rear very slightly for butt scratches, trying to keep body low. Pressed face into corner again after door closed.
Small improvement. Crouched towards back, eyes dilated, but soft gaze, seemed a little wary. Shifted back when door opened, then sniffed hand, leaned slightly into pets, but huddled close to wall. Hesitant when first given mouse toy, then started to play energetically!
Resting behind litter box, eyes dilated but half closed. Shifted back when spoken to, then lay in place when door opened. Sniffed hand, allowed brief pets, then retreated and curled up tightly, leaned away to avoid further touch. Pressed face into wall after door closed.
Moved to adoptions. Curled up asleep in litter box, woke when door opened. Lay in place, eyes somewhat dilated, seemed sleepy. Allowed all pets, put head down, closed eyes. After a while, shifted away, hunched own again.
Briefly in main compartment, eating dry food. Slowly retreated to cubby when spoken to, crouched behind litter box, closed eyes. Stayed hunched in place when door opened, briefly lifted head, then hid face when touched. Allowed all pets, stayed crouched down, eyes closed. No real response.
Reaction to assessor:
Banjo remains neutral, crouched position turned sideways with head up at the back of the cage.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Banjo becomes alert with normal shape eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Banjo remains in place, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Banjo accepts the touch and slowly head rubs and body leans into the petting. However, he seems unsure with his surroundings and remains cautious in place.
