Goldberg was brought in without information on his behavioral tendencies in his previous home. He nuzzled against the counselors hand during intake and allowed them to pick him up. He allowed all handling and hissed when placed into a carrier, but would nuzzle against the counselor’s hand again when petted.
Solicits attention–head butting
come forward but perks up when I open the cage door. I slowly approached and he leaned in for head rubs, allowed petting all over. Social and friendly with me during our interaction.
Attention-seeking, at the front of the kennel. Allows all handling, including pick-up. Always right at front, leaning in for petting, gives gentle head-butts. Seems a little anxious, likely due to still being unsure about his circumstances, but social and friendly.
Sitting at front of kennel, relaxed, slow blinking and purring. Appreciates attention, friendly when I open kennel door and begin petting him. Calm and quiet when I pick him up and hold him. Sweet, friendly cat. Seems people-oriented, showing a little interest in toys and catnip.
