Date of Intake
Buoy was brought in as a stray so his history is limited at this time.
Previously lived with:
1 adult, 17 cats
Buoy was very friendly during intake, he was head butting the counselor and receptive to being pet.
Buoy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Mild purring, allows handling
Lying in back of kennel, body tense and ears flat. Pupils are dilated. Tolerates petting along head and body while turning head to watch my hand, ears remaining flat. Sniffs my hand and turns head back towards front, licking lips and shifting his weight. Nervous and unsure, needs more time to adjust.
Sitting down near the back of the kennel with his paws folded under his body. He leans forward to sniff, then gently rubs his cheeks against the cage door. He looks around the cage, and seems hesitant initially, but warms up quickly with attention. He arches his body when pet along his back, and he leans in for rubs on his cheeks, but keeps his tail lowered. After a few minutes of attention he comes forward and gives head butts. Doing great! Okay to take off socialization list.
