I was found in NY 11207.
I have been at the shelter since May 24, 2015.
BEHAVIOR: EXPERIENCED HOME
Notes: Cotton was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. Upon approach Cotton remained at the back of the kennel growling and swatting at his flicking tail. When spoken to softly Cotten approached the front of the cage with a soft ,relaxed body and allowed petting. He also allows handling. Cotton did not display fractious behavior towards the assessor at this time. Cotton is displaying behavior appropriate for experienced cat parents.
Reaction to assessor: does not come to front, growling at tail
When spoken quietly: comes to the front of cage
Reaction to door cage opening: becomes soft and relaxed
Reaction to touch: solicits petting and attention (1)
Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling
