ENRICHMENT NOTES:: 8/22/19 Lying down by the back of cubby and looks at assessor with wide eyes. Tenses up and starts to breathe rapidly when door opens, but slowly sniffs scratcher tool as it extends. He remains tense when gentle pet on the head, and then starts to squint his eyes when pet on his cheeks, but remains in place throughout interaction. Seems unsure and nervous, but tolerant of attention. Needs some more time to warm up. 8/28/19 Lying slightly hunched in the back of the cubby. Lip licks, squints eyes slightly with approach. Allows petting on the head but timid. Dropping a few treats in front of her causes her to flinch slightly. Needs time. 08/31/19 Renolds is not forthcoming when approached. He appears tense and wide eyed. But he will allow a gloved hand once he has sniffed it to approach and allows head rubs favorably. 09/03/19 Laying on large blanket when approached. Woke up but did not come to larger area for petting. This is unusual for Renolds since I observed him the other day being out in the larger area observing the rooms activities and visitors. Did allow his head to be rubbed but seemed a bit lethargic. 9/4/19 In the back of the cubby sleeping. Allows petting on the head, follows my hand for stroking on back. Relaxes with treats, eats them while being pet and then eats out of my hand. Continues to allow petting, sitting up slightly and shows some interest. 09/07/19 More active today, actually solicits attention at front of kennel. Some interest in chicken cutlet and head and cheeks rubs. 09/10/19 Renolds is alert and responsive today. Allows head and cheeks to be rubbed.Enjoys chicken cutlets and baby talk. Needs a regular flow of human interaction and kindness to show what a great cat he is. 9/11/19 Resting in the upper cubby with a soft body. Perks up when spoken softly. Comes forward when coaxed with chicken fillet and eats it it in front of the assessor. Enjoys petting, rolls over onto his side for attention, kneads and purrs. Seems to be a bit hesitant as didn't come out of the cubby. Very sweet and affectionate cat. Huge improvement!
