Behavior – Beginner Home:
Coral was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder reports she is sweet and will approach people for rubs and hugs. She was nervous and attempted to run for cover, but allowed the counselor to handle her and doesn’t struggle when picked up or held. She was a bit nervous during her initial medical exam, but allowed the medical team to handle her.
Reaction to Assessor: Coral approaches the front and was calm, relaxed, and friendly.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Coral presses her head against the cage door, rubbing on it.
Reaction to cage door opening: Coral remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Coral head-butts, begins to purr, and leans in for more petting. She lies down by the assessor and rolls over during the interaction.
Reaction to being picked up: Coral remains calm and continues to purr when held.
Behavior Determination: Beginner
Coral interacts with the observer, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. No known history of behavioral problems. This cat can go to a beginner home.
Calm, relaxed, and friendly by the front. She meows softly when I speak softly to her and starts to solicit attention, purring loudly. She has a soft body as I pet her and rubs her entire body against me. Her tail quivers throughout the interaction and she will roll over, continuing to solicit attention. Super sweet and affectionate cat.
