Pressed against back wall, head down, face hidden behind bedding. Lifted head when door opened, eyes dilated, tense posture. Leaned, then slowly moved away to avoid touch. Started lip licking after door closed.
Resting in top cubby, eyes dilated, head down. Shifted back when door opened, curled up tighter, flattened ears. Briefly sniffed offered treats, didnâ€™t eat. Withdrew even further when touched, then held completely immobile.
Curled up in litter box, tense, eyes dilated. Lay in place when door opened, leaned away, then held immobile when touched. Tolerated pets, showed no interest in treats. Seems really uncomfortable with surroundings.
Reaction to assessor:
Nefertiti remains tense, crouched position at the back of the cage bedding during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Nefertiti becomes alert with dilated pupils.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Nefertiti increases distance, ears flat to the side, stiff with tail tightly curled close to the body.
Reaction to touch:
While accepting the touch he turns away from the assessor’s hand with no interest towards the interaction.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Nefertiti 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 who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
