He appears cautious and will focus his attention on movement in the room, and will continue to sniff the assessor’s hand after. With some coaxing, he pushes against the assessor’s hand and places his head below the hand to be petted.

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Mousey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home and family. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Although he did well with children in his previous home, because of his stress levels in the care center we also recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction.
