Reaction to Assessor: Pixie was slightly hiding underneath her bedding upon approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Pixie looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes and blinks.
Reaction to cage door opening: Pixie remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Pixie becomes alert as the assessor lifts the blanket away from her, but she remains in place and allows all petting. She lip licks, but appears to appreciate chin rubs as she leans into petting.
Reaction to being picked up: Pixie becomes tense, but allows handling.
Placement Determination: Experience
Pixie tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
Nervous, allowed handling.
Applied 1.0 cc Activyl intrascapular
