Vanilla Bean was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on his behavior in his previous home. His finder reported they attempted to catch him in their yard, which caused him to turn around and bite them on their finger. He immediately let go, however. The counselors reported he allowed all handling during intake.
Observed Behavior – Allowed all handling.
Sitting crouched in back of kennel, tail wrapped around body. Tolerates petting while lowering body and tilting ears. Needs more time to adjust.
Vocalizing in front of kennel. He leans into petting and raises his tail. Allows all petting while purring. I place a soft treat in front of him and he seemed uninterested initially. He begins eating it shortly after I begin petting him. Doing great! Possibly a social eater.
Super sweet, comes forward and greets when I call his name. Purrs when pet, leans in for rubs. He rolls over on his side & seems to enjoy belly rubs. So much more confident!
At front of kennel as I approach. Allows all petting, leaning in and rolling over onto side. Rolls around kennel floor and purrs. Vocalizing at front of kennel after session has needed. Doing great! Friendly little kitten allows all handling and appreciates attention.
