ESKY – A1115352
Safe - 6-21-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 6/21/17 These two cuties were found in the same yard and are quite sweet! Esky is a little more outgoing than his tabby counterpart Tadah, but he currently has a URI! Tadah can be a little shy initially, but is such a sweetheart and would be happiest in an experienced kitty home.

Esky was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Greets at front of cage. Little restraint required for exam. Allows all handling.

Reaction to assessor: Esky was bouncing around and playing in the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Esky pauses then shifts away to the back of the kennel.
Reaction to cage door opening: Esky is relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Esky moves away from the assessor’s hand and slinks down when touched. She warms up very quickly to touch and purrs softly when pet along her body. After a few soft pets she rolls over, gives head butts and nuzzles against the assessor.
Reaction to being picked up: Esky is calm, relaxed and allows all handling.
At front of kennel kneading towel. Backs away with tail raised when I open the kennel door, then comes forward to head-butt my hand. Warms up quickly and allows all petting, leans in with tail raised. Social kitten – doing well!
