11/02/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: You know how people sometimes refer to black cats as “house panthers”? Never has that name been more fitting, looks-wise anyway. Fennel has a face that looks like, if he were sized up a few times, he’d fit right into the jungle. Luckily, he’s only the size of a cat, and he can fit right into your home instead. Fennel is generally pretty chill – while some cats run up begging for attention, Fennel preferred to sit serenely and let me come to him. While I pet him, he nuzzled me in a calm way. But Fennel’s inner jungle cat comes out when he gets catnip, which causes him to roll around with frenzied joy, adorably getting the little catnip leaves all over his silky coat.
10/25/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Fennel was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Fennel was lying down on his blanket, relaxed at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Fennel seems unsure and looks around wary of his surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Fennel’s eyes widen and he becomes alert. Reaction to touch: Fennel is hesitant of contact and lip licks when the assessor extends his hand forward. He leans forward to sniff the assessor, allows petting with a gentle approach and starts to lean in when rubbed on his cheeks. His body feels a bit tense and he feels confident near the back and doesn’t get up or come forward. Behavior Determination: Experience Fennel may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
