Lying in back of kennel with a low body, ears flattened and eyes wide. Tolerates petting while licking lips and rapid breathing, tail wrapped around body. Very nervous. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Lying in litterbox with a low body, ears tilted. Eyes are wide. He moves his head forward to sniff the air as I reach towards him, then allows petting along his head and body. His ears shift forward and he relaxes after a few moments, rolling over in his box and lifting his rear as my hand passes down his back. He stands up with continued petting and comes forward cautiously, pausing to peek outside into the room each time he hears a noise. Gives me a few head-butts and allows further petting, tail remaining curled between his legs as he raises his butt. Beginning to warm up – did well today! Likes temptations treats.
Curled up tight in his litter box, eyes focused, ears bend slightly. He keeps his tail wrapped up at his side, and remains motionless when I tried coaxing him forward. His body tenses up and he leans back when I extended my hand forward. Hesitant initially but starts to open up/relax with attention. He sniffs me then gently nudges my hand and accepts gentle pets on his head and along his body. His tail stays Becomes more confident and affectionate- gives head butts, rubs his body against my hand. A bit tense when picked up, but he allowed it.
Sitting crouched in back of kennel, ears tilted and eyes wide. He leans his head in when touched and stands up as my hand passes along his body. He allows petting while coming forward and raising his tail. Begins to eat wet food – social eater? Nervous initially, needs to be approached. Warms up once engaged – appreciates attention. Cute and sweet. Showing improvement! Sprayed feliway.
Sitting crouched in cubby. Eyes wide and pupils dilated, tail wrapped around feet. He head-butts my hand softly as I reach towards him and allows petting along his head and body while leaning in and raising his rear into the air. He comes forward to allow further petting and after a few moments I am able to coax out of his portal and into his kennel. He is more focused on his environment when not in his cubby -allows petting while leaning in, then pausing every few seconds to glance outside at the room behind me. Still adjusting to new environment. Timid and sweet, needs to be approached first. Did well today. Sprayed feliway.
Lying in litterbox, ears forward. Sniffs the air and leans in for petting. He raises his butt in the air as my hand passes along his back. He comes forward out of his cubby when I call his name. Continues to lean in and head-butt my hand. Not confident enough yet to raise his tail. Tail remains wrapped around his body as he lifts his rear. Sweet but nervous. Needs some more time to acclimate. Doing better every day. Sprayed feliway.
