SAFE 2/2/17 A volunteer writes: A cat with Grace Kelly looks! She has stunning gold eyes that seek a friendly look in return. The shelter is a bit overwhelming for her. But when I tell her what a beauty she is in whispered tones, she begins to roll around on her back in delight. Ah ha! This beauty queen just needs a safe place to call home. Can you provide a gentle loving home for Grace?

Grace was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She had a tense and stiff body during intake, but allowed the counselors to conduct all handling.
Cage Condition: Grace’s cage was neat.
Reaction to assessor: Grace was lying on top of her litter box, calm and relaxed.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Grace looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Grace remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Grace sniffs the assessor’s hand and nuzzles her face against their arm. She head-butts during petting, leans in for cheek rubs, and rolls over to display her belly. She is very affectionate throughout the interaction, purring loudly.
Reaction to being picked up: Grace was slightly tense, but remains calm when held.
Just moved up to hallway. Hunched in litter box, eyes dilated. Sniffed treats, but didn’t eat. Allowed and slightly leaned into pets, and closed eyes.

ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow
CHARACTER TYPE: Calm, Sweet, Affectionate
BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Average
