She remains tense the paper as the kennel door opens and hisses when the bear-claw reaches towards her, whiskers back and ears flattened. Needs more time to adjust. I gave her a hidey box and sprayed feliway. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Diamond was curled up tight in her litter box with her head lowered. Reaction when softly spoken to: Diamond’s ears being flat and she slowly turns her head away when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Diamond lip licks and lowers her head into the litter box. Reaction to touch: Diamond’s eyes become fixated on the assessor’s hand and she starts lip licking when pet on her head. She tolerates petting, grumbles when pet along her body and remains completely immobile throughout the interaction. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Diamond tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
