*** SAFE 03/01/17 *** SPAY- ABORTED! Basil is a pretty young kitty who needs some extra time adjusting to new people. While she allows some gentle petting on her head, she’s not completely comfortable with other kinds of petting yet. With some patience and time, Basil could be happiest in an experienced kitty home with no children.

I am a female black and white domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old.

02/26/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Basil arrived at the shelter as a stray, so her behavior in a previous home is unknown. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Curled up on blanket, quietly resting, lifts head up and looks at assessor with soft eyes, then tucks head back into body Reaction when softly spoken to: Motionless, opens eyes but doesn’t react Reaction to cage door opening: Comes forward, checks food bowls, then focuses on assessor, body posture somewhat tense, tail swishing slightly Reaction to touch: Allows some head rubs, leans in, but intently follows assessor’s hand when attempting to give soft body passes, quickly pulls body back and raises a paw to swat, clearly telling me she’d prefer not to be touched on back and rear areas. Reaction to being picked up: Tolerates being picked up but struggles to get down. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Insistent, Independent RECOMMENDATIONS: _X_ Experienced, adult home only BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Behavior observations _X_ Experienced, Adult Only Basil tolerates attention and some petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
