Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Morgan and at the time she was in the litterbox. Morgan was hesitant but allows petting. She gets up and rolls over playfully.
Reaction to assessor: Morgan was calmly watching the assessor from the middle of the cage
When spoken quietly: Morgan stayed at middle and continued to watch the assessor
Reaction to door cage opening: Morgan remains soft and relaxed
Reaction to touch: Morgan comes to the front and solicits attention
Try picking cat up: Morgan is tolerant of this type of handling.
Behavior Determination: Average
Taylor was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior, eventually comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Morgan is displaying behavior appropriate for a new or experienced cat owner.
