Sugarpuff – A1105371 – 6 month female black/white, stray:
Sugar Puff was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Very scared during examination
Wide-eyed and lying flatly at back of kennel, quiet. Nervous and wary. When I slowly approach she lets me pet all over. Shows interest in wet food I offer but doesn’t start eating. Does start playing with a mouse toy I give her and seems to really like the pinch of catnip-silver vine mix I put in her kennel, rolls around playfully in the herbs. Cute.
Moved to adoptions. Sticking to cubby for now, but appreciated attention. Has been moved around a lot already, needs some time to adjust. Gave treats and a toy.
Shy, sweet girl. Appreciates attention, allows all handling. A little nervous when held, focused on surroundings. Gave some treats.
Cage Condition: No change
Reaction to assessor: Sugar Puff was resting on her blanket at the back of her cubby.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Sugar Puff lifts her head up to make eye contact, stretches her body and slowly leans forward to sniff the assessor.
Reaction to cage door opening: Sugar Puff shifts away to the lower level of her kennel.
Reaction to touch: Sugar Puff moves away and seems a little hesitant when the assessor approaches her. She allows petting, slowly leans in for attention and relaxes a bit. Her body feels a bit tense and she feels more confident near the back of the kennel.
Reaction to being picked up: Sugar Puff was a bit tense when picked up but remains calm in the assessor’s arms.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back, and another if applicable
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Timid, Affectionate
