Reaction to cage door opening: Koala remains crouched position, alert with dilated pupils. Reaction to touch: Koala accepts a brief touch on the head, but becomes agitated and began to low growl at the assessor’s hand. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Koala may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his 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.
