Try picking cat up: Rahja is tolerant of this type of handling.
Rahja is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated and plays roughly. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Rahja becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Rahja 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 she was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Rahja likes to rough play and will grab on using her nails Rahja is displaying behavior appropriate for a experienced cat owner with no children.
Rahja is a female torbie colored domestic short hair with no known medical conditions. Rahja was found in a building in a box. Rahja allowed finder to pick her up and pet her. During intake Rahja was very curious of her surroundings. Rahja allowed counselor to scan collar and pick her up with a loose body. Rahja enjoyed being pet by the counselor and would come to the front of the kennel seeking attention.
