Reaction to assessor:
Lindsey remains neutral, lying down on her kuranda bed during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Lindsey becomes alert with soft eyes, looking around.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Lindsey remains in place, relaxed ears and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Lindsey leans in for pets then quickly turns on her side meow whines, hisses and swats at the assessor’s hand.
Potential challenges comments:
Initially Lindsey solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swat at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Lindsey becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
Experienced, adult only
H – Healthy
Lindsey may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. 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 her new home and family at her own pace.
