ENRICHMENT NOTES:
06/17/17 - Tiger was lying down, alert with eyes wide open, but when given a toy pipe cleaner with a feather he seemed interested. He engages with a soft body, accepts treats then bagan to scratch on the scratch pad.

6/18/17- At the front on approach, soft body, eyes a little dilated. Scratched on cardboard scratcher for a bit, then lay down towards the back. Sat up and ate offered treats, occasionally sniffing assess-a-hand. Tolerated pets while eating, when done, gently pushed assess-a-hand away, no claws, and walked away to other kennel. Played gently when given catnip sock.

6/19/17- Asleep on kuranda bed, woke when door opened. Tolerated pets while eating treats, ignoring me, then shifted to other side of bed and leaned away to avoid touch.

EVALUATION:
Cage Condition: No change
Reaction to assessor: Tiger looks neutral, lying down on his kuranda bed during the approach.
Reaction to door opening: Tiger remains soft body, alert with normal shape eyes.
Reaction to touch: Tiger seems hesitant and slowly leans away from the assessor''s hand but loosens up and head bunts during the stroke.
Reaction to Being Picked up: He becomes antsy then jumps back into the cage.

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Average
Tiger interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting.
This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
