Low body posture, trying to hide behind the litter box. Eyes wide, pupils dilated, quickly shifts away when the door opens. Starts breathing rapidly, tolerates petting with bear claw. Seems very uncomfortable. Needs more time to adjust.

Hazel chirps, then rolls over on her side and rubs against the kennel furnishings.

Hazel vocalizes, then retreats towards the back of kennel and wraps her tail around her legs.
Reaction to touch:
Hazel sniffs his hand, then perks up and leans in for rubs on his cheeks. She vocalizes when pet, her tail rises up and seems to enjoy slow interactions, but isn’t comfortable with full body touch. When the assessor’s hand passes along her back she quickly whips around, and swats.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
No other cats OR multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats
Hazel remains social and easy to handle with her human caretakers, but please be aware that Hazel may be uncomfortable around other cats. Their previous owner reports she hisses and displays distance increasing behaviors whenever she notices a neighboring cat. Due to the described behaviors, we recommend Hazel goes to a home with no other cats OR into a multi-cat home with cat parents experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time.
Hazel may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
