Trefoil was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was receptive to handling upon intake and during her initial medical exam, although she was tense and nervous during her exam. The enrichment facilitator reports she was a little shy, but came forward for treats. She stiffened when touched, but allowed petting and lip licked a little.
Reaction to assessor: Trefoil was calm and relaxed upon approach, watching the assessor.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Trefoil chirps lightly and pokes her head forward, but stays in place and appeared hesitant to come forward.
Reaction to cage door opening: Trefoil shifts away initially, but comes forward again.
Reaction to touch: Trefoil sniffs the assessor’s hand and was hesitant of contact, but she pushes her head up against the assessor’s hand once touched. She begins to purr, approaches the front to interact with the assessor, and leans in for cheek rubs.
Reaction to being picked up: Trefoil was slightly tense, but remains calm when held.
Behavior Determination: Average
Trefoil interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
A little shy. Came to the front for treats. Stiffened when touched, but allowed the stroke. Minor lip licking. Sprayed feliway.
In cubby on approach. Meowed, came to the front, and started rubbing against the bars when spoken to. Head-butted, leaned and arched enthusiastically into pets, purred and kneaded in place.
