Kat warmed up to me and proved herself to be very good at head butting and other essential cat skills. In her previous life, Kat lived with one adult and was said to be shy around strangers. I found her to be very friendly and affectionate…..KAT has an Experience rating because she is a bit of a fearful girl…Four years old and SPAYED, KAT just needs someone to give her room to relax and feel secure again!!

Reaction when softly spoken to: Kat makes eye contact, rolls over on her side, remains relaxed and doesn’t come forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Kat rises up and leans forward to greet the assessor. Reaction to touch: Kat keeps her tail curled at her side and leans forward to sniff the assessor’s hand. She seems unsure at first but relaxes when pet and rubbed on her cheeks. Her body rises up when pet along her back then she slowly approaches the front but looks around wary of her surroundings. She gives light head butts then moves back into her litter box with her tail lowered. Reaction to being picked up: Kat was a bit tense when picked up, looks around at her surroundings, lip licks then leaps away.
