Roxy is at-risk with an adult only determination. She becomes stiff and alert when approached for interaction and will attempt to shift away to avoid contact. She shifts away from petting, but will allow gentle petting. Although she tolerates petting, she displays signs of discomfort and will growl while flicking the end of her tail. When uncomfortable, she will stress meow and pat the assessor’s hand away.
