ENRICHMENT NOTES: 09/27/17
Lying in back of kennel, head hidden behind blanket. He lifts his head when touched and turns to watch my hand as I pet him along the back. Hisses with ears flattened. Needs more time to adjust.
Lying in back of kennel with a low body. Makes eye contact and licks lips. He tolerates petting along head and body initially while turning head to smell my hand, then begins to warm up with continued petting. He leans in for when touched on the head and head-butts my hand. Scoots forward to allow more petting, ears forward and eye soft. Sweet boy. Beginning to warm up – did well today!
Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged
Reaction to assessor: Francis was and lying down underneath his kuranda bed.

Reaction to cage door opening: Francis lip licks then pauses and becomes focused on his surroundings.
Reaction to touch: Francis sniffs the assessor’s hand then leans in and accepts petting gently on his head and body. His body feels tense and he’s constantly pausing and becoming focused on his surroundings whenever he hears or sees anything.
