Wolverine was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Reaction to assessor: Wolverine was lying down on his blanket with wide eyes focused on the assessor.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Wolverine becomes alert, sits up then slowly inches to the back of the kennel.
Reaction to cage door opening: Wolverine remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Wolverine’s ears pin back and he starts hissing when the assessor extends his hand out. He sniffs the assessor and allows petting on his head and cheeks with a very slow approach. After a couple soft passes he shifts away and tries to hide in his litter box.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
Wolverine tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
Curled up in the back of the kennel. Timid & shy. Sniffs hand when approached. Leans in when rubbed on head & cheeks. Slowly warms up, approaches the front slowly with his tail lowered. Allows petting all over. Body becomes tense when picked up, looks around. Appreciates attention, building confidence.
01/18/17 (LIC Notes)
Inside a box, calm and relaxed. Remains in place as I extend my hand and accepts touch, closing his eyes and purring. He is a bit shy, but warms up quickly to attention and leans against my hand as I rub his cheeks. Very sweet, but may need more time to fully be confident around people. He appeared to be calm around the other cats in his group.
