During the neck scruff test, we ideally lie to see a kitten that is tolerant of being scruffed. One that fights the scruff test might be hard to handle for things like baths, nail trimming, and grooming.
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.

Giant Maine COon kItten – Mr. Soapy
Scroll up to the top of this page. Do you see Soapy’s dad (Beastie)? If you like the way he looks, then just imagine that in a little 5 week old Maine Coon kitten package. That’s exactly what Soapy is.
He is basically a replica of his giant Maine Coon dad. The only difference we can see right now is the pattern on his coat. Beastie is a classic tabby and Soap is a mackerel tabby (more like a tiger).
