He tolerates petting along his head with flat ears and turns to hiss at the bear-claw as it passes along his body. Needs more time to adjust. 05/31/17 Lying low in back of kennel with a low body, head resting on floor and ears flat. He comes forward slightly to smell the I have in my hand, but won’t eat them even when placed on the floor. He tolerates petting with the bear-claw along his head, leaning back with a tense body and squinting his eyes. He turns and jerks his head towards the bear-claw with an open mouth as it passes along his back. Needs more time to adjust. 06/02/17 He was feint sleeping near the back of the kennel. Tense body, curled up tight. He was unresponsive when coaxed then slowly turned his head towards the wall. His ears flatten, he re-adjusts his body and becomes fixated on my movements. Very focused, his body twitches when touched. He tolerates when pet on his head but definitely seems uncomfortable. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Specky 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 new home. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
