Rockstar was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Rockstar keeps his body lowered inside his litter box.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Rockstar avoids eye contact and curls up tighter when spoken to softly.
Reaction to cage door opening: Rockstar flinches then lip licks.
Reaction to touch: Rockstar slowly inches away and closes his eyes when touched along his body. He tries to climb the kennel wall and remains in place when pet. His body is a bit tense but he slowly warms up and leans in for rubs. After a few minutes he becomes more comfortable and slowly approaches the front.
Reaction to being picked up: Rockstar is a bit tense when held and curls up in the assessor’s arms.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Rockstar may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
