Lola was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Crouched position in the cage cubby, alert looking towards sudden noises, grumbles throughout the petting and remains cautious with her surroundings.
Curled up dozing in litter box, looked up when spoken to. Hissed and moved out to main compartment when cubby door opened. Returned to litter box when main compartment door opened. Leaned briefly into pets, then flinched away. Started grumbling when door closed.
Dozing in litterbox, woke when spoken to. Lay in place, soft eyes and body, then stood and slowly came out to main compartment. Stood in place when door opened, alert. Leaned into pets, some grumbling and quiet growling at first, then started to roll over! Sniffed hand, rubbed against the bars after door closed. Still a little conflicted, but improving!
Reaction to assessor:
Lola remains crouched position with head up in her litter box during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Lola remains alert with eyes wide open, anxiously looking around.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Lola began to lip lick in place, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
While Lola accepts the touch on the head, she places head down. After a few strokes, she looks up and stands with tail low then slowly walks away from the interaction. She randomly low growls during the petting, but leans into the assessor’s hand for more strokes. However, while slowly retrieving the hand she then paws at it with no claws.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Lola 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.
