Reaction to touch: Ronny flinches and shifts around when the assessor touched him on the head. He’s tense, alert but slowly started to warm up to touch. His body slowly relaxes and starts to get more comfortable with full body contact. After a few soft passes he leaned in for attention and started giving soft head butts. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Ronny has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced cat parent – Ronny 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.
