How is this cat around strangers?
Around stranger Butterfinger isfriendly and slowing came out of the carrier to eat dry food.
Butterfinger was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Easy to handle but did not like restraint.
Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor:
Butterfinger was relaxed and lying down on her blanket near the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Butterfinger slow blinks then slowly turns her head away.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Butterfinger curls up tight and avoids eye contact.
Reaction to touch:
Butterfinger lip licks and closes her eyes when touched, but she slowly warms up with attention. Her body starts to perk up and she gently nudges the assessor’s hand when pet along her body. Her tail remains lowered and she seems very wary of her surroundings.
Reaction to being picked up:
Butterfinger was a bit tense when picked up and meows softly to be put down.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Butterfinger may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
