Curled up at back, face partly hidden behind kuranda bed leg, eyes dilated. Lay in place when door opened, tense posture. Seemed unsure, but allowed pets, lowered head, closed eyes. Slowly ate treats after door closed.
Briefly at the front, looking around. Retreated on approach, crouched down behind bed leg again, eyes dilated. Lay in place when door opened. Sniffed hand, allowed and slowly leaned into pets, extended neck for throat rubs, remained tense.

A little out of sorts today, likely due to pain killers. Crouched at front, eyes fully dilated. Stood and retreated all the way to back on approach. Slowly lay down when door opened, seemed to warm up a bit when touched. Leaned hard into pets, pressed face into my hands, closed eyes.
Hiding under cage bedding with eyes wide, cautious with her surroundings. She accepts the touch and got comfortable enough to eat treats in front of her.
Curled up behind litter box, tense, eyes fully dilated. Shifted in place when door opened, curled up tighter. Sniffed hand, then leaned hard into pets, purred, closed eyes. Very affectionate, but seems unsure of surroundings. Startled easily by noise.
