Behavior Notes:Harry was brought into the care center in a box. When the box was opened he popped his head out. He was easily picked up and placed on the counter for his photo. he took interest in the cat nip toy and this was used to get him to look at the camera. The carrier was placed on the counter and Harry walked inside on his own. He was given wet food and he ate right away. His collar was not put on because of a wound on his chest.
Harry was brought into our care center as a stray so we have no previous history available.
Active, attention seeking, allows all handling.

Reaction to assessor:
Harry is curled up in his litterbox as the assessor approaches, ears forward and tail wrapped around feet.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Harry makes eye contact with the assessor when softly spoken to, then head-butts his litterbox.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Harry rolls over onto his side as the cage door opens.
Reaction to touch:
Harry allows petting along his head and body while leaning in and rolling over in his litterbox. Allows all petting while remaining in his litterbox and leaning against the assessor.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Harry appreciates attention and petting but may be a bit more timid in the shelter. He allows all petting and solicits attention but is not confident enough yet to leave his cubby. He may need some time to warm up when brought into his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
