Next Test Date:
Moe was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Very sweet. Easily handle able. Did well for all medical handling and procedures
Lying in back of kennel with a low body, avoiding eye contact and face tense. She lifts her rear when pet along the back, then lowers herself back down and tenses her body. Needs some time to adjust â€“ has potential to warm up.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Moe was tense and curled up tight in her litter box with wide eyes focused on the assessor.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Moe keeps her eyes focused on the assessor and doesn’t get up or come forward when coaxed.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Moe lip licks and remains motionless.
Reaction to touch:
Moe seems unsure at first but slowly starts to warm up with attention. She perks up when pet, leans in for rubs and allows petting all over her body. After a few soft passes along her body she comes forward and looks out at her surroundings. Occasionally she’ll retreat when she hears a loud noise but she quickly warms up and goes back to soliciting attention.
Reaction to being picked up:
Moe was a bit tense when picked up, but she remains calm and allows all handling.
H – Healthy
Moe interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
