The former owner stated Josie is friendly and outgoing when strangers come to the home. She is relaxed and affection around children. She plays gentle with both children and adults. Josie has only lived with her mother Midnight (8640) and they were somewhat rough with each other during play. Josie has not spent time around dogs and previous owner is not sure how she will react around them. Josie has never bitten another animal or person.
Resting in top cubby, eyes dilated, seemed a little unsure. Sat up and retreated slightly when door opened, meowed quietly. Brief hesitation, then allowed and started to lean into pets. Minor lip licking. Sprayed feliway.
Much calmer today! Resting in litter box, soft eyes and body. Lay in place when door opened. Sniffed hand, then leaned hard into pets, purred, closed eyes.

Josie immediately comes soliciting at the front of the cage.
