Quiet, allows exam
Lying in litterbox with wide eyes, tail wrapped around body. He makes eye contact when spoken to and then looks around the room. He comes forward to sniff the treats I have and eats them from my hand. Comes out of his litterbox and comes forward slowly, body low with his tail down. Eats treats from my hand. He looks up while eating his treats and makes eye contact multiple times, then continues eating. I pet him along his head and body and he leans in very gently. Allows further soft petting while crouching down and wrapping his tail around him. Movements are very slow. He keeps looking out behind me and sniffing the air, ears forward. Curious.
Sitting in litterbox, ears forward and eyes alert. He comes forward when I open the kennel door and allows petting along his head and body, tail raised and quivering. He’s a bit timid, backs away slightly and then comes forward to head-butt my hand. Kneads his back paws. Loves all treats – gobbles them from my hand. Vocalizing in front of kennel by the end of the interaction.
Approaches the front and looks around, curious. Still a bit cautious of environment, but will approach to sniff me and head-butt lightly when pet. Tail starts to quiver and all four of his paws knead. Remained calm and relaxed, purring lightly during interaction.
He approaches the front with a calm, relaxed when called. Sniffs my hand, leans in for attention. His tail quivers and he gives soft head butts when rubbed on his head. Social, friendly and allows petting all over his body. He didn’t mind being picked up. A bit tense, but he allows it. He comes right back to solicit attention when placed down.
