She has never bitten a person or animal before. Behavior Avari scratches on furniture made of upholstery and does not have any litter box issues. She does not get baths but gets wiped down with wet wipes with cat shampoo and she allows this. Avari enjoys being brushed and is not bothered by being held for short periods and then she will jump down when she has had enough.
