Curled up at back, head down, eyes dilated. Seemed unsure. Lay in place when door opened, tolerated, slightly leaned into pets. Ate treats after door closed. Shivering?
Curled up asleep in cat bed, mostly under blanket. Woke when door opened, lay in place, soft eyes and body, started eating offered treats. Very food motivated! Allowed all pets while eating, then continued to look for more. Repeatedly sniffed hand, then leaned slightly into pets, ate additional treats from my hand.
