5/29/18 Observed Behavior – very afraid, vocalizing
Lying down in litter box, looking out with almond-shaped eyes and ears shifting back and forth from facing forward and sideways. She lowers her head into litter box with sudden noise, but sniffs my hand when offered. Looks away from me, but allows petting and leans in for cheek rubs. Still tense, but seems to appreciate attention. Shy, but has potential to warm up more.
Resting on bedding towards back, soft posture, eyes a bit dilated. Started slow blinking when spoken to. Lay in place when door opened, sniffed hand, then stood. Head-butted, leaned and arched into pets, rolled all the way over, purred! Lay down again after door closed, ate a few treats, resumed slow blinking.
Reaction to assessor:
Pinkie remains neutral, lying down on his kuranda bed during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Pinkie becomes alert, eyes wide open, looking around.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Pinkie remains on his kuranda bed, relaxed ears and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Pinkie head rubs and body leans into the assessor’s hand. He also enjoys treats and engages for more while purring throughout the interaction.
Reaction to being picked up:
He becomes antsy then jumps back into the cage.
H – Healthy
Pinkie interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
