Tropical was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.

Attention seeking, head butting, allowed all handling, tried to move around table and explore, resisted handling for eye treatment

Cage Condition: Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor: Tropical was relaxed and lying down on his blanket near the back of the cage.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Tropical rubs his body up against the cage door but got startled then retreated into his cubby.
Reaction to cage door opening: Tropical slowly comes out the cubby to greet.
Reaction to touch: Tropical sniffs the assessor''s hand, accepts petting then leans in for rubs on his cheeks. He purrs when pet, gives head butts and is very affectionate.
Reaction to being picked up: Tropical was a bit tense when held, then got antsy and tried to leap out of the assessor''s arms.

VOCAL: Quiet
CHARACTER TYPE: Social, Sweet, Affectionate

Tropical interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat can go to a beginner home.
