Milkshake was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Milkshake was curled up tight in her litter box with her tail at her side.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Milkshake turns towards the assessor and slow blinks but remains motionless and doesn’t come forward.
Reaction to cage door opening: Milkshake remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Milkshake’s eyes widen and she slowly leans back when the assessor extends his hand out. She flinches when touched and sinks lower into her litter box trying to avoid all contact. Her body feels tense/stiff when pet and she periodically turns around and focuses on the assessor’s hand.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Milkshake tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
Motionless, silent, in litter box, sitting tensely up on tips of paws. Not open to interaction at this time. Sprayed some Feliway and left some treats.
Clinging to rear of cage, motionless as I approach. Does allow me to give some head rubs, but very tense. Doesn’t seem to be feeling well, possibly coming down with a cold. Gave some fresh food, a spray of Feliway and treats.

Adorable, teeny little guy, sitting way at the back of his kennel, wide-eyed. He’s nervous, but seemed to accept that I was going to pick him up and hold him. Didn’t hiss or try to flee. Calm and quiet when I held him. Would benefit from a foster home ASAP, should warm up quickly. Gave some treats and toys and a spritz of Feliway. Will check on him later, maybe swap in some different toys. Arrived with Milkshake, 1099364, who’s apparently his mother.
Gave me that look again today, “I know you’re going to pick me up, so let’s just do it.” Easy to handle, quiet when held, eventually wanted to climb to the top of my head, but irresistbly adorable. Tiny, delightful. Gave him a stuffed animal to keep him company, he’s alone. Would benefit from a foster home, where he should quickly warm up, still only 5wks. Gave some treats.
