ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Kitten socialization Potential challenges comments: Kitten Socialization Elektra is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. She may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes s/he has potential to warm up to people. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people. Please speak to an adoption counselor to learn more about socialization techniques. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experience Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable RECOMMENDATIONS: None BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Elektra tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter.
