Behavior Determination: Average
Tom Jr 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. At the time of the assessment he was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the assessor, allows attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Tom Jr is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
