Snowhite was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Snowhite comes forward with wide eyes, low growls and tries to swat at the assessor.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Snowhite slowly relaxes, leans forward and sniffs the assessor She slowly rubs up against the kennel door with her tail raised up.
Reaction to cage door opening: Snowhite becomes alert.
Reaction to touch: Snowhite is hesitant of contact and slowly leans away when the assessor extends his hand out. She sniffs the assessor’s hand and lightly rubs up for attention. Her body is a bit tense but she allows petting all over with a slow approach. When the assessor backed away and tried to close the door she lunged forward and tried to swat.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Snowhite tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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.
