10/04/17 Behavior: Average
Lioness was resting by the front, soft and relaxed. She meows softly when approached and sniffs for tuna puree. She shows interest, so decided to clicker train. Had to put some puree on my hand to lure her to stick her paw out. After the first few attempts, she became really consisted and patted my hand gently in the fist bump position. Started adding verbal cues! She is a great fist bumper so far!
