Peridot was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
very nervous and tense but allowed all handling without a fight
Lying in back of kennel, body flat and ears tilted. Pupils are dilated. She tolerates petting while remaining very still, eyes looking around the room. Nervous – needs more time to adjust.
*Enrichment notes continued*
Sitting crouched in back of kennel with tail wrapped around body. He tilts his head as I reach towards him and head-butts my hand in greeting. He allows petting along his head and body while leaning in and continuing to give me head-butts. Very sweet, warms up once approached. He begins to gobble up his wet and dry food after a few more moments of interaction – social eater. Remained in the back of the kennel for this session, may have been nervous due to how crowded the room was. Sweet senior boy, you just have to make the first move. Sprayed feliway.
Sitting crouched beneath kuranda bed, ears forward and tail wrapped around feet. He comes forward to greet my hand with a head-butt and allows petting along his head and body while leaning in. Raises his rear each time my hand passes along his back. He comes all the way to the front of the kennel and begins to raise his tail. Purrs and kneads kennel floor. Very sweet – doing great! Gobbles up all treats given. Doing well in room 6. Sprayed feliway.
Sitting hunched in back of kennel, tail loosely wrapped around body. He head-butts my hand as I reach towards him and leans into petting with his shoulders. Head-butts the kennel floor and wall and begins to purr with continued petting. Comes forward. Allows all petting for duration of session. Social eater – begins to chow down on wet food. Timid and sweet – doing well!
Lying on top of kuranda bed today, not hiding beneath it! He tilts his ears as the cage door opens, then head-butts my hand as it moves towards him. Allows petting along his head and body while leaning in and raising his butt and tail while lying down. Remains calm and allows all petting for duration of session. He’s sneezing and drooling – may be coming down with a URI.
Lying in back of kennel, head lowered onto kennel floor. Makes eye contact when spoken to, then looks around the room. Ears are tilted. He lifts his head as I reach towards him and leans in for petting. He stands up and comes forward to allow further petting, leaning in with energy and raising his tail. Very sweet. He walks right up to the edge of the kennel and head-butts my hand. Gobbles up food, pausing every few moments for more petting. Social eater. Loves treats. Shy until you make the first move. Did well today!
