**SAFE 04/26/16** PURRFECTLY HEALTHY, SWEET AND SHY TUX NEEDS YOU-BE RUKO’S HERO! Aww…look at that sweet face! Meet four year old fab feline, Ruko, another one of those “stray” surrenders. Ruko is calm, chatty, gentle and allows handling. He seems to be nervous at the shelter (who can blame him?) It is recommended he go to a quiet home without kids.

04/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ruko was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Ruko is hiding in his litter box with wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ruko stress meows and slow blinks at the back. Reaction to cage door opening: Ruko remains neutral. Reaction to touch: Ruko is hesitant at first, leaning away from contact. His tail is curled up next to his body and slowly warms up allowing petting. He allows petting all over with a slow approach and tilts his head in for rubs. Ruko continues to stress meow and is easily startled. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Ruko tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
