Elsa is an brown tabby with white, male that is possible 9 months old. Elsa was surrendered to ACC due to owner being evicted. Sugar has lived with 15 cats in the house. Elsa can be very nervous and seeks to hide.

Other notes: Elsa was a bit nervous during intake, but she allowed handling when approached slowly.
Cage Condition: Cage is neat.
Reaction to assessor: Elsa was crouched over on her blanket by the front, but has her tail wrapped around her body.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Elsa leaned forward to sniff around.
Reaction to cage door opening: Elsa remains motionless but scans her surroundings and slow blinks.
Reaction to touch: Elsa was tense and closes her eyes, flinching when touched. She tolerates petting on her head, but lowers her body when touched along her back. She lip licks and appears very focused throughout the interaction.
ENRICHMENT NOTES: Comes forward when coaxed, enjoys salmon. Sniffs hand and watches with wide eyes. Very wary and a little skittish when approached. Receptive to touch with a slow approach. Tail stays lowered. Food motivated, will try to clicker train.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very nervous, trembling, allows all handling.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy
_x_ Experienced, adult home only – Elsa tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
_x_ Fearful – Elsa has displayed fearful behavior during her stay in the care center. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her 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.
Litter-/roommate Berry left today. so she’s on her own. For now, she has a triple kennel. Nervous, wary, uncomfortable with touching, but able to pet and pick up (was tense while held, kicked to be put back in cage).
Sitting towards the back of her cage, on her blanket. Quiet, makes a little eye contact. Skittish, but with a slow, gentle approach she responds, letting me pet all over, doesn’t run away. She eventually warms some and arches her back up and into the petting. Sweet cat, has potential to warm up. Gave some new toys and treats.
S/O: BAR. Attention seeking, eating well
EENT: No ocular or nasal discharge
HL: No sneezing
A: Apparently healthy
P: After chart review and cage exam, OK for spay tomorrow.
