Brass was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Brass was curled up on her blanket near the front of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Brass leans forward to sniff the assessor then backs away and moves to the back of the kennel.
Reaction to cage door opening: Brass lies down in her litter box with her paws folded under her body.
Reaction to touch: Brass seems hesitant at first then slowly relaxes and allows petting all over her body. She slowly rises up, approaches the front with her tail erect then gives gentle head butts when rubbed on her head. She builds up confidence, is more comfortable being touched and starts to purr softly.
Reaction to being picked up: Brass was a bit tense when picked up, remains calm and allows all handling.
Behavior Determination: Average
Brass interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
