SAFE 7/20/18 Sweetheart Pen is the Prettiest Kitty You’ll See All Day! @BACC. Pen is a 4 year old female that has no previous or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner had Pen for 3 years but had to surrender due to moving. A volunteer writes: Pen is a sociable young lady who is very outgoing. I saw her interacting with a couple of potential adopters, turning on the charm. Pen purred pleasantly while having her head rubbed. This easy-going charmer doesn’t need a family with a whole lot of cat experience; all they need is love.

Observed Behavior – timid and tried, but allowed all handling with restraint.
Curled up by the back with dilated eyes. Seems curious, but lip licks. Leans forward to sniff and hisses once, but allows petting with slow approach. Eats treats, but seems wary of surroundings. Has potential to warm up more, just needs time.Â
Crouched in back of kennel, ears forward and eyes wide. Makes eye contact. She stretches and steps forward, body low and tail raised half way, then allows petting along her head and body while leaning in and raising her tail. She lowers her body again and backs away when she hears a loud noise, then steps back forward to head-butt my hand gently. Timid and focused on environment. Has potential to warm up!
Sitting in the back of the kennel. Her ears tilt forward, and her eyes widen. Seems hesitant, moves away when I extend my hand forward. She lip licks, but sniffs my hand and accepts gentle petting. She perks up, starts to purr and gains a bit of confidence. Clicker trained- rewarded with party mix treats when she solicit attention. Very sweet, comes forward and leans in while nuzzling against my hand. Doing better.
Lip licks when I approach the kennel. Seems hesitant initially, but quickly warms up with attention. She purrs softly, gives head butts and allows petting all over. Not as wary of her surroundings, much more confident. Doing well. Okay to take off socialization list!
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Pen was resting upon approach. Her arms were stretched out toward the front of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Pen meows softly and stretches before approaching the front of the kennel and sniffing the assessor.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Pen rubs against her cage furnishings and goes through her kennel portal door, but will come back when coaxed.
Reaction to touch:
Pen accepts petting and head-butts lightly. She begins to purr and leans in for head rubs. The base of her tail becomes pilo-erect, but she continues to nudge the assessor for more attention when petting stops and doesn’t show any further reaction.
Reaction to being picked up:
Pen is tense during pick up, but she allows this kind of handling. After a moment, she wiggles to be placed back down.
H – Healthy
Pen took some time to adjust to her human caretakers, but after meeting with her a few times she warmed up considerably. She may still need some time to warm up to her new home and family, but she interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
