BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Average
Dong Dong interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
Sitting towards front of kennel with feet folded beneath him. He tolerates petting initially with a tense, still body, then begins to warm up with continued petting. Begins to raise his rear when pet along his back and eventually begins to raise his tail as well. Comes forward as interaction continues, vocalizing softly. A bit nervous after first day, just needs some time to adjust. Sprayed fleiway.
Lying underneath kuranda bed. She leans in for petting when touched and stands up to come forward after a few moments – builds confidence quickly. She leans in for petting at the front of the kennel and head-butts my hand. Stays close to me for duration of session. Very sweet, she’s warmed up a lot since yesterday. She pauses to look outside the room when someone passes by, then focuses back on the interaction. Kneading blanket after I close the kennel door. Did great today!
Lying down on top her kuranda bed, tail wrapped at her side. She hops down and hides underneath her bed. Looks around, scans surroundings. I was able to coax her forward by talking softly to her. She approaches the front, sniffs then leans in for attention. Tail rises up & her body still feels tense when touched. She’s very wary of her surroundings- constantly pauses and staring intensely at the door whenever she hears something or when someone walks by. When I tried picking her up she tensed up and wiggled away from me. I offered her some treats and sprayed feliway.
Lying on top of kuranda bed with a relaxed body. She jumps down when I open the kennel door and greets me with a head-butt. She allows all petting, leaning in and nudging my arms. Remains in the font of the kennel for the duration of the session, leaning in for petting with much energy. Affectionate – doing great!

At front of kennel, sitting upright with ears forward and eyes alert. Allows petting along his head and body while leaning in and head-butting me with all her might. Very enthusiastic. Tail is raised and she makes eye contact with soft eyes. She remains calm and relaxed as I pick her up and carry her. Doing great!
Lying down & relaxed on top her kuranda bed. She lip licks then hops down and comes over to greet when I started talking to her softly. Ears pointed forward, relaxed, rubs against the door. Very affectionate but she tends to become very focused on her surroundings when she sees/hears something. She nuzzles up for attention, gives head butts and allows petting all her body. Her body feels slightly tense but she’s social and very friendly. She doesn’t mind being picked up/held. Doing great! Sprayed feliway.
Lying on top of kuranda bed as I approach. She jumps down and allows petting along her head and body, leaning in with gusto and keeping her tail raised.
