Reaction to touch:: Storm sniffs at first, then slowly leans into the assessor's hand, but during petting he becomes agitated when touched on the back and began to follow the hand and hissed. He seems to be conflicted because once the petting stopped he continues to solicit attention. If the petting continues, he huffs and puffs then gently places mouth on the hand and hisses as warning to stop the interaction.

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Storm tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
