Allows all handling
Lying down relaxed on blanket, doesn’t move much. Allows petting, leans in when rubbed on her cheeks. Started to lip lick, grumbled when she had enough.
Cage Condition: No change
Reaction to assessor: Dollar was relaxed and lying down on her blanket at the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Dollar rolls over on her side, stretches her paws and doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed.
Reaction to cage door opening: Dollar sits up and focuses on the assessor’s hand.
Reaction to touch: Dollar sniffs the assessor’s hand, her tail end starts to flicker and she seems wary of contact. She squints when the assessor extends his hand out and allows petting gently on his head and body. When the assessor touched her along her back she quickly whipped around and hissed. She started lip licking, was focused and took some time before she relaxed.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Affectionate
Experienced, adult home only – Dollar 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 his or 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to her new home and family at her own pace.
