– Fearful – Culver has displayed fearful behavior during his stay in the care center and may shift away from contact with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
– Experienced cat parent – Culver tolerates some attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
