_x_ Placement with a New Hope partner
POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: (Refer to Behavior Terminology sheet for detailed recommendations)
_x_ Kitten socialization
x__ Experienced, Adult Only
Kitten tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children.
He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home.
Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
