– Experienced cat parent – Lacey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Lying in back of kennel with a low bod and tense face. She makes eye contact when spoken to, then looks away. Doesn’t react when I place treats in front of her. She tolerates petting along her head and body while licking her lips and turning her head to watch my hand with wide eyes. Nervous and uncomfortable today. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway
