SOLAR – 19263
Safe - 2-2-2018 Brooklyn
SAFE 2/2/18 BEGINNER Ozone & Crate Mate Solar Found Abandoned Together! SWEET PAIR! Someone brought SOLAR to the shelter – he is 3 yrs old and already neutered and needs a new home.
Solar was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Very sweet but tense and nervous in the back of the cage. Easily handle able. Did well for all medical handling and procedures
Lying in cubby, body neutral and ears forward. Makes eye contact when spoken to. He tolerates petting along his head and body while leaning away from me and flattening his ears, eyes slightly squinted. Unsure, needs more time to adjust.
Lying in cubby with a low, soft body. Makes eye contact when spoken to and rolls over onto his side. He grumbles when I open the kennel door and tolerates petting along his head and body while flattening his ears and leaning away. Body softens and he continues to roll and scent mark his towel as long as I speak to him and donâ€™t touch him. Not interested in treats at the moment. Curious but unsure, needs some more time to adjust.
Crouched in cubby, ears forward and body slightly tense. He makes eye contact as I open the cubby door and vocalizes. Tolerates petting along head and body while tilting ears and tensing body further. He eats the treat I place down so I click and reward each time he smells my hand or each time I touch his head. Conflicted and unsure. Needs time to adjust.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Solar was lying down in the back of the cubby, watching the assessor with wide, focused eyes.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Solar lip licks and meows softly when the assessor tries coaxing him forward.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Solar lip licks and inches towards the back of the cubby.
Reaction to touch:
Solar curls up and shrinks his body when the assessor extends his hand out. He squints when touched and tolerates slow, gentle petting on his head. After a few minutes of attention he starts to build up confidence, then leans forward allowing rubs on his neck/cheeks and along his body.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Solar may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
