Curled up at back of cubby, tense, eyes dilated. Stayed crouched at back when door opened. Sniffed hand, allowed, then leaned into pets. Softened noticeably when room emptied out and noise level decreased, eyes became much less dilated.
Couched at back of litter box, pressed into corner, tense, eyes dilated. Stayed hunched in place when door opened. Tolerated pets, lowered head, shifted in place. Seems really uncomfortable with surroundings.
