Reaction to touch: Katy solicits petting and attention by rubbing against the assessor’s hands, but remains wary of her surroundings and hisses periodically. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Katy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
