For New Family:
Arabia is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful. He has a lot of activity at home and loves to play with balls, string, laser pointer. His owner loved that he liked to be pet, he would come over by her and sit on her and purr, and was respectful of her space. Arabia loved to sit on the windowsill and look outside. He also loved to follow his owner around the house and watch everything she did. He has been kept mainly indoors and sleeps on a pillow on the floor. He likes wet food, all brands with anything fish flavored, and gets 2 cans per day, one in the morning one at night. He likes Temptation treats. He is very litterbox trained and uses an uncovered litterbox with Fresh Step clumping litter. He does not have a scratching post at home but would probably like one since he scratches on the carpet.
