Ralph A1082212 – 11 week female black kitten:
Reaction to assessor: Ralph does not come to front but remains neutral
When spoken quietly: Ralph does not come to front but remains neutral
Reaction to door cage opening: Ralph moves further back
Reaction to touch: Ralph allows petting with a slow and gentle approach
Try picking cat up: Ralph is tense when held
Behavior Determination: Experience
Ralph 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 fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices she relaxed a little. I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. I was also able to pick her up and although she was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
female, ~9 weeks
sociable, allows handling, no hissing but scared, attempt to flee
ears, Eyes and nose- clean and clear
no fleas or parasites seen in coat
