Behavior – Average Home:
Carolyn was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder described her as a sweet cat; she likes to rub her head against their leg. She allowed the finder to pick her up and appeared to be living outside for the past few months, being cared for by the neighbors. She had a tense body upon intake and during her initial medical exam, but allowed the counselor and medical team to handle her.
Reaction to Assessor: Carolyn was curled up by the back, resting.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Carolyn looks at the assessor with soft eyes, blinking sleepily.
Reaction to cage door opening: Carolyn lifts her head to look at the opening and starts to knead.
Reaction to touch: Carolyn leans on her side, continuing to knead and starting to purr. She approaches the front after, head-butting the assessor lightly.
Reaction to being picked up: Carolyn remains soft and continues to purr when held.
Behavior Determination: Average
Carolyn interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. No known history of behavioral problems. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
