Upon intake Twizzler was slighty timid, but allowed the counselor to hold him, collar and take a photo with no issue.
Twizzler was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was slightly timid during intake, but he allowed the counselor to hold him and handle him with no issue.
Social, attention-seeking, friendly. Was definitely hungry, which may have been driving the attention-seeking to some degree, but allowed all handling.
Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged.
Reaction to assessor: Twizzler meows loudly once, but he sits by the front and can be heard purring like an engine.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Twizzler meows loudly again and looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Twizzler greets the assessor by the opening, soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Twizzler was a bit hesitant initially, but he warms up to touch quickly and would rub against the assessor vigorously. He climbs on their lap, nuzzles against their body, and continues to purr. He is very affectionate throughout the interaction.
Reaction to being picked up: Twizzler remains calm and continues to purr, but would wiggle to be let down after a moment.
Not in med iso, but being treated for URI. Social, attention-seeking, friendly. Was definitely hungry, which may have been driving the attention-seeking to some degree, but allowed all handling. Devoured a bowl of fresh wet food I gave him. Left some Temptations, a pinch of catnip, and a feather toy.
Moved to iso for care. Still has a huge appetite. Friendly guy, though really not feeling well. Gave a new plush toy and a frozen tuna pop (which he enjoyed).
