Next Test Date:
Zuri was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Resting under kuranda bed, eyes dilated, looking around, wary. Whined quietly when door opened. Sniffed hand, then leaned hard into pets, purred loudly. Ate treats after door closed. Very sweet, just needs time to acclimate.
Sitting up under kuranda bed, alert, eyes wide and dilated. Shifted back when door opened, whined. Warmed up immensely once touched, leaned hard into pets, purred loudly, drooled. Eyes became markedly less dilated. Still seemed wary of room noise, lots of looking around. Took a while to lay down and eat treats after door closed.
Curled up asleep in litter box, woke when door opened. Lay in place, soft posture, eyes a little dilated but soft gaze. Immediately started head-butting, leaning into pets, purring. Ate offered treats after door closed.
Reaction to assessor:
Zuri remains neutral, crouched position with head up in her cage cubby during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Zuri becomes alert with eyes wide open.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Zuri began to stress meow with pupils dilated, ears erect and forward.
Reaction to touch:
Zuri lip licks in place while she remains stiff and accepts the touch, but low growls during the interaction. After a few strokes, she then loosens up and head rubs the assessor’s hand. However, she remains cautious with her surroundings looking around.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Zuri may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
