Pumpkin’s previous owner reports she has lived with children and has socialized with children of all ages. She is respectful of them and plays gently with children and adults. She has also lived with cats and was relaxed around them, but is more independent. Around dogs, she is still respectful but hides. She is shy around strangers for a few days. She enjoys being brushed and doesn’t mind being placed in a carrier. She really likes to be picked up and held. Pumpkin was best described as affectionate and playful with a medium activity level. She enjoys playing with all types of toys and knows how to play fetch. She will follow the owner around at home seeking attention. Reaction to assessor: Pumpkin becomes stiff and alert, and has a low body posture. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pumpkin’s eyes wander and she lowers her body even more. Reaction to cage door opening: Pumpkin remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Pumpkin sniffs the assessor’s hand and accepts petting on her head and body, slowly starting to knead. She relaxes and appears to appreciate petting, but becomes alert with sudden noises and seems wary of the environment. Placement Determination: Experience Pumpkin tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Her previous owner reports she has done well in a home with children, however due to her stress levels in the care center, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
