Resting in litter box, eyes a little dilated, looking around. Seemed unsure. Became alert when door opened, eyes dilated further, wouldnâ€™t make eye contact. Lay in place, slowly started to eat offered treats, posture softened slightly. Allowed, then leaned into pets. Slow blinked after door closed.
Resting on shelf today, eyes a little dilated but soft posture, looking around. Lay in place when door opened, started eating offered treats. Paused after a bit to lean and arch into pets, lifted rear for butt scratches. Came forward after door closed, sniffed hand, started rubbing against the bars, then lay down and rolled all the way over. Very sweet!

For a New Family to Know
Sparkle is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, and quiet. Her previous owner likes that she is affectionate and follows him around the home. She likes to play with string and was kept indoors. At night she either slept on the couch or her previous owner’s bed. She ate dry Meow mix mixed with wet food. She is litter box trained and used a hooded litter box and crystal litter. She scratched on leather furniture or fabric. She had a vertical scratching post made or carpet she did not use.
Sparkle had a low tense body when I approached. She allowed me to collar her and take her picture but would attempt to walk away. She allowed me to pick her up and place her in her kennel. Once in her kennel she attempted to hide and stayed towards the back.
