SOCKS allows all handling and petting, but seems to be stressed out in the shelter environment. He’s handsome, only 1YO, and most likely best suited for an experienced cat home.

Reaction to door cage opening: Socks remains motionless
Reaction to touch: Socks seems indifferent to my presence and touch
Try picking cat up: Socks is tolerant of this type of handling but tense.
Behavior Determination: Experience
At the time of the assessment Socks was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices she relaxed a little. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. I was also able to pick him up and although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Curled up in blanket. Nervous, hides face. Lip licks. Tolerates petting all over. Not interested in treats or food.
