The dangle test might seem silly, but it’s a great factor to test the temperament of a kitten, especially if there will be small children handling the cat. The longer a kitten will dangle, the more tolerant he/she is.
High-Energy kittens tend to need a lot of interaction and mental stimulation, even into adulthood. They also bond well with people. They’re likely to break stuff. 🙂
Low-Energy kittens are calm and secure. They do play and interact, but they’re not instigators. They usually do well being left alone at home. They do well with other pets and kids especially well. This temperament is likely to be a lap cat.
Shy kittens might prefer to be the only cat. They bury their heads when you hold them and might shiver when you pick them up. Shy kittens build bonds with their humans once trust is built and become very loving adults.
Keep in mind kittens personalities change a lot as they grow, and will change even now from the time they go home. Use this assessment as a guideline for what the kitten will be growing from, not a set in stone personality type.

Is she a crybaby, though?
Is Crybaby REALLY a crybaby? OF COURSE, SHE’S NOT! but it sure is a cute name. She was named after a song from Melanize Martinez, just like the rest of her siblings in this litter.
