Would not allow pickup ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced cat parent – Steven mildly tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _x_ Fearful – Steven has displayed fearful behavior during his stay in the care center and continues to shy away during an interaction. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide himr with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus.
