SAFE 3/30/18 Leon is a gorgeous grey boy who came to ACC after being found on the street trying to push his way into a building. During his time at the care center he has been very tense and timid. He would benefit from a quiet home that will allow him the time to warm up at his own pace.

3/18/18 Observed Behavior – Soft body, meowed once, allows all handling
3/16/18 Crouched down with head low in the litter box, no interest while accepting the touch, eyes wandering and stiff body
Reaction to assessor:
Leon hisses and remains crouched position with head down in his cage cubby.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Leon began to lip lick in place with pupils dilated.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Leon remains stiff in place, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Leon accepts the touch while ears turn sideways and shows no interest towards the interaction.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Leon tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
