SAFE 8/2/17 A volunteer writes: Meet Bane: he’s a head-butter and all-around loverboy; this friendly boy has never encountered a human hand or leg he wouldn’t rub his white and orange fur against. He comes to us from a home, where he got high marks from his former family for playing gently and happily with the adults and kids in the home. He was also a good buddy to the family dogs (he used to sleep with them!). Our behavior team found Bane to be social, sweet, and curious; he was happy to be petted and stroked, purring and leaning in for more affection. Bane would be an awesome fit in just about any household. I just know Bane has a happy and bright future ahead of him–maybe in your home?

Owner stated that Bane has no known health issues or behavioral problems. When unknown guests enter the house, Bane will run up to them and rub his head against their legs and is accepting of being pet. He was described as having medium energy levels, he enjoys playing with objects around the house and being around his owners. He will follow them around from time to time and spends the rest of the day sleeping or playing. He has a healthy appetite and eats mainly dry food. He has good litterbox habits, he will use both a covered and uncovered box with clay litter. Bane is an indoor cat, he has not had any interactions with other cats but previously lived with three small dogs. The owner stated he coexisted well with the dogs, he was often seen engaging or sleeping with the dogs, including when there were puppies in the home. He uses a scratching post but also scratches on the furniture, he would benefit from having more posts and other available toys. He has no history of biting or scratching other people or animals and plays well with children. He is tolerant of having them pet him and enjoys interacting with toys from them.
When Bane was in the admissions office he came out of his carrier willingly, but did not allow counselors to collar him. He jumped off the table while emitting a low, throaty growl. After giving him a few minutes to calm down, counselors attempted to pick him up to put back in the carrier and he began hissing at them. They offered him wet food and other treats but he did not accept them. Protective gear was put on and they continued to try to control him, but Bane quickly became defensive, hackles raised, hissing, swatting and spitting at counselors. He eventually needed to be caught in the net and placed in carrier. No collar or pictures were able to be taken, he was brought back to medical immediately after being placed back in the carrier.
