A little nervous, but social, friendly and appreciates attention and petting. Brought to the interaction room this a.m. No problems picking up and moving, he was tense while being held and grabbed on. In the room he was still nervous, stuck to the back, just watching. Whenever I approached he was social and appreciated petting, rising up and into the attention. Social, friendly cat, still nervous and buildling his confidence in his new situation. He again grabbed on when I picked up and returned to kennel, was keen to jump back into his kennel, seems to feel safest in his “spot.”
