Madison was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. It was reported that he was thrown from a car window. His finders brought him to the vet, but were told he didn’t have any major injuries. He was initially fearful upon intake and backed away from touch, but after given a moment and provided with some food, he cautiously allowed petting. He allowed all handling throughout the intake process and did not show any signs of aggression.
Reaction to assessor: Madison was resting upon approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Madison becomes alert and looks at the assessor. He starts to breathe rapidly, but would put his head back down and averts his gaze afterwards.
Reaction to cage door opening: Madison remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Madison was a bit hesitant, but he remains in place and warms up a little. He closes his eyes and leans in for cheek rubs, but he still appears cautious of the assessor.
Reaction to being picked up: Madison remains soft and curls up in the assessor’s arms. He looks around his surroundings with wide eyes, but allows all handling.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Madison tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
