Fat gorgeous housecat, social and sweet. Still nervous, wary about circumstances, hisses once in a while, not quite sure about fully engaging in attention, but appreciates it and does solicit more, needs to build a little more confidence. Allows petting all over, warms up with the petting. Coaxed her forward, not so much with treats, but just with talking to her. Warmed up further, arched back, tail quivered, enjoyed the attention. Good potential to warm up here. Adding to socialization list.
