SAFE 2/3/18 LILO is a spayed girl who is not a happy camper at being in the shelter. She needs a furever home asap.
Lilo was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Seems friendly at first, comes to front of cage soliciting attention, but then starts hissing and swatting.
Lying in back of kennel with neutral body, ears forward. Allows petting along head and body while leaning in, eyes soft. Warms up more and more as interaction continues. Sweet girl, doing well!
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Lilo was relaxed and sitting down in the back of the kennel with her paws folded under her body.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Lilo slowly comes forward, sniffs the assessor, then gently rubs up against the cage door.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Lilo steps forward and leans out the kennel to look at her surroundings.
Reaction to touch:
Lilo seems curious of her surroundings and steps out the cage to explore. She stays close to the assessor and leans in when rubbed on her cheeks and along her body. Her tail quivers when pet and she gives gentle head butts.
Reaction to being picked up:
Lilo was a bit tense when picked up and tries to wiggle out of the assessor’s arms.
H – Healthy
