He sniffs my hand when I reach towards him and comes forward to eat some treats. Raises butt and stands up with continued petting. Not confident enough yet to raise tail or leave his litter box fully, but appreciates attention and warms up quickly when touched. Has potential to warm up here. Sprayed feliway. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Leo was lying down in the back of the kennel resting against his litter box. Reaction when softly spoken to: Leo turns his head to make eye contact then slow blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Leo curls up tight Reaction to touch: Leo stares at the assessor then lowers his head when he extends his hand out. He lip licks and tolerates soft, gentle pets on his head and along his body. After a few soft pets he shifts his weight, leans in for cheek rubs then rises up. He slowly builds up confidence, gives head butts and appreciates attention. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Sweet RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced cat parent – Leo may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
