Startled by quick movements or noises, but recovers quickly. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 06/27/17 Hunched over in litter box, looking out with wide eyes. Ears tilt sideways, but sniffs hand. Flinches when pet and seems very unsure, slowly shifting away and curling up by the back corner. Lip licks and slow blinks after. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Miracle was crouched in the back of the kennel with a tense body. Reaction when softly spoken to: Miracle’s eyes widen, he lip licks and slowly turns his head away. Reaction to cage door opening: Miracle shifts away to the other side of the double kennel. Reaction to touch: Miracle seems wary of his surroundings and dodges the assessor’s hand when approached. His ears tilt sideways and he flinches when touched on his head. He has a tense/stiff body, shifts away to the corner of the kennel and curls up tight. He tolerates petting but seems very uncomfortable and slowly turns his head away. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Miracle tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his 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.
