Came right to the front when I opened cage door, alert, lots of nervous energy, allowed petting all over. Let me pick her up and hold her, walked over to the tank with the turtles to watch them for a while. Stayed calm while behind held. Hissed when I returned to her kennel, but allowed further petting. Started eating a bowl of fresh wet food, allowed petting all over while eating. Seemed to grow more anxious with prolonged attention, focused intently on my hands, snapped head around when touched on rear, but didn’t otherwise react, remained primarily focused on food (only ate the gravy of her “meaty bits” Friskies, may prefer a pate and/or crunchy). Sprayed Feliway, gave some treats, Initial vet exam pending. Adorable cat. Checked back to see how she was doing and to offer some different food. Likes Fancy Feast tuna “medley” and loves albacore tuna. Allowed petting all over while she ate, which she did busily, stayed calm and friendly.
Vocal, attention-seeking, busy, active in kennel, comes right to the front on approach and when door is opened. Allows petting all over, grumbled a little. She’s in a tough spot, right by the door, which opens/closes frequently and seems to be bothering her, she often looks that way and seems to startle with hallway movements. Gave some fresh food, treats and a new toy. Adorable little face. I think she may be a little bit of a fussy eater.
