Oakley was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Oakley was lying down at the back pressed up against the kennel wall trying to avoid eye contact.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Oakley’s eyes widen and she starts lip licking when the assessor calls her name. Reaction to cage door opening: Oakley remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Oakley’s ears pin back and she hisses when the assessor extends his hand out. She tolerates petting with a very slow approach and becomes immobile when pet on her head. Her body feels very tense and she quickly shifts away trying to avoid any contact.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Oakley tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children
Crouching in litter box, wide eyed, makes some eye contact. Quiet, motionless. When I open cage, remains immobile, makes a little eye contact, surveys surroundings. Backs away from a slow approach, wasn’t quite ready for touching, needs time. Sprayed Feliway and left some treats and a new catnip toy.
01/18/17 [LIC Notes]
Inside of a den, somewhat alert when approached. Hisses lightly as I extend my hand and looks around. He retreats when petting was attempted and doesn’t seem interested in interacting with me. She doesn’t seem to mind the presence of the other cats in the group, however.
