Reaction to touch: Tigger leans forward to sniff and gently leans his head in allowing rubs. He closes his eyes when touched along his body then starts to shift his weight and leans away. He starts to grumble when he’s had enough then slowly shifts away and sits in his litter box. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 02/15/17 He loves a small plush toy I gave him. He allowed some petting but is a little hesitant, needs some time to adjust–and the move. UPDATE: Moved the duo into a triple kennel, clearly familiar with each other, but each sticking to his/her own space for now. 02/16/17 Much warmer today! He and Cookie are sticking to opposite sides, but Tigger is clearly more at ease today. Allowed petting all over, leaned in for more attention. Still getting his paws underneath him, but is showing good progress. The new location is much better for him, bottom, rear corner of the room. Will monitor him throughout the day. Update: Is warming up, came forward for attention when I checked the pair. Cookie came over into the middle kennel, Tigger stuck his head through and the nuzzled briefly. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Social, allows all handling but gets agitated with prolonged restraint ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy
RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only – Tigger 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. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
