Casey was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Casey was curled up at the back of the kennel with his head lowered and his tail at his side.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Casey keeps his paws folded under his body, seems a bit nervous and keeps his eyes focused on the assessor.
Reaction to cage door opening: Casey remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Casey lip licks when touched and allows petting all over his body with a slow, gentle approach. His body feels tense, he doesn’t get up or move when touched and he seems uncomfortable. After a couple soft pets on his head he leans forward allowing cheek and neck rubs.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Casey may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Lying in litter box, trying to hide, head pressed into a corner of the box. Big cat. Doesn’t move when I approach, allows me to pet head and give some soft passes over body, which is tense, breathing rapidly. Scared, wary. Potential to warm up here, needs some time.
At back, really nervous and unsure. Box had been spilled and pushed to front of cage. Lets me pet all over, initally rally anxious, but does calm with continuted slow petting and talking. Slow blinks when I talk softly to him after closing cage door. Really sweet cat, adjusting slowly to this stressful environment. Room is extremely noisy today, which is not helping.
Truly handsome cat, with cool ear tufts. Makes an endearing bubbling noise when given head rubs, purrs, too, but really quietly. Shy, mellow cat. Feels safer at the back of the cage still, but appreciates petting. Calms with the touching, eyes and body soften. Still nervous and unsure, but he’s a sweetheart.
Shy, appreciates a slow approach. Still uneasy here, but a sweet cat.
Tried some new toys this morning and seem to have found something he likes. Started playing, up and moving around, doing much better. Was sleeping in his bed-box, relaxed earlier. Awesome cat, good progress.
A little uneasy today, resting in litter box, not bed. A little uncomfy with petting at first, smell of the Latex glove and/or hand sanitizer on my hands may have initally bothered him, but he warms up. Eventually comes forward. Big, shy, awesome. Doesn’t seem to be playing with his toys much. Will put in for a vet check, just to make sure he’s not coming down with a cold.
More relaxed today, back to resting in his bed-box, not his litter box. Vet checked, no cold. Brigher and more attentive today. Awesome cat, needs a home where he can really stretch out. Left some treats, which he enjoyed.
Needs someone to give him a chance. He doesn’t rush to the front to greet people, but if you give him some time he perks up and apprediates it. Big cat, easy to handle, friendly. Gave some new toys, catnip and some treats.
Perks up with attention, may be getting a little restless here. Will try to get him into the interaction room in the early morning to stretch his legs. Gave some new toys and treats.
