Resting on bedding towards front, soft posture, wide-eyed, looking around. Softened after being spoken to for a while, started squinting and returning slow blinks. Backed up a few paces when door opened, initially leaned away from touch, then leaned into shoulder and back of head scratches. Started slow blinking again after door closed.
Resting on bedding at front, soft eyes and body, looking around. Lay in place when door opened, sniffed treats but didn’t eat. Initially leaned away, but once touched, leaned into pets and purred loudly. Leaned away again from subsequent attempts at touch. Still seemed a little unsure.
