Penny A1081667 – 13 week neutered black/white:
Reaction to assessor: Penny was sleeping at the back of the cage on his blanket
When spoken quietly: Penny continues to sleep
Reaction to door cage opening: Penny looks up and remains motionless
Reaction to touch: Penny allows petting but becomes tense
Try picking cat up: Penny remains tense while being held and struggles to go back into the cage. Once placed back into the cage Penny runs into the litter box
Behavior Determination: Experience
Penny 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 he was displaying nervous behavior. Penny does not seek attention from the assessor, becomes tense touched and held but allows all petting. I was able to pet her and interact with her. I was also able to pick him up and although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
