Meowki is not known for being super friendly to strangers, but I did my best to make friends with him as I approached. He was not impressed, however, and I could not convince him to let me get close. He turned away from me and walked out near the end of his limb and sat there defiantly. I offered food to him, but he was not taking the bait.
I hope Meowki does not get stuck in a tree again, because I don't know if he will fall for the trap trick again.
