This gorgeous tuxie is described by his previous owner as being mellow, relaxed, quiet and shy. BRIAN is a playful guy and liked to follow his owner around the house.

Brian’s previous owner reports he is shy around strangers for a few minutes, but plays gently with adults. He has lied with children ages 10 and up, and was reported to be relaxed around them, also playing gently. He was best described as friendly, mellow, shy, and quiet with a low-medium activity level. When at home, Brian will follow his owner around and enjoys playing with balls, strings, and tin foil. Reaction to assessor: Brian was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Brian’s ears tilt sideways and his eyes open slightly, but he doesn’t turn to face the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Brian becomes stiff and alert, and looks at the assessor with wider eyes. Reaction to touch: Brian sniffs the assessor’s hand and allow gentle petting on his head. He leans his head back down and slightly arches his back when touched on his shoulders, but meows when touched along his back. When touched again on his back, he starts to growl, but he doesn’t seem to mind petting on his head. Behavior Determination: Experience Brian tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or 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. Although his previous owner reports he has done well with a home with children, due to his stress levels in the care center, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
