Extremely nervous upon approach, lying flat and trying to hide inside of litter box. Becomes alert when spoken to and will hiss. She hisses multiple times when hand was extended and backs away, so I didn’t try to pet for now. Sprayed feliway and offered some treats, which she sniffed, but didn’t eat. Later when a medical handler placed their hand in front of the cubby door, she hissed and swatted at the door, growling louder and breathing rapidly.
Shuttle was abandoned in our lobby. She was left behind with a bag of donations. She appears to be a Siamese cat and tolerated all handling.
Behavior during intake
Shuttle allowed handling and collaring. She wanted to hide from us and kept her tail tucked. Her eyes were not dilated and ears remained erect.
