Blake is a 5 year old male neutered brown tabby and white domestic shorthair cat who is being surrendered because the owner wants him to have a better home. Blake has been with his family about 5 years.
Blake lived with 1 adult. There was one other cat in the home which he is receptive to and engages in play with. Blake has been exposed to visitors and will be cautious at first watching from a distant and then will approach to interact and the family says he is relaxed and receptive. He is also described as being tolerant and gentle with children. He has not been exposed to dogs. He uses an open litter box with tidy cat litter.
Blake will flee for a bath but is not defensive. He enjoys being picked up and also being brushed. He allows nail trim but it may take some time because the family says it is best to go slow. Blake will flee from a cat carrier but can be placed in one and is quiet for a car ride.
He has a vertical scratching post made carpet and family says they prefer this over cardboard. He uses the scratching post but may also scratch the rug in the home. He enjoys a small plush toy that he likes to keep with him. When the family is home Blake wants to be where they are. When home alone he is well behaved but can interested in novel items like plastic bags. Blake likes dry food.
Upon intake Blake was cautious to introduction but ventured out of the carrier partially. He allowed petting with head butting of counselors palm. Counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative ) and photograph but did not collar as after allowing so petting on the head he retreated to the back of the carrier and warded off contact with slow swatting.
Bright, alert, attention-seeking, great appetite. Grumbled a lot this morning when I first spent time with him, really wanted to get out to explore, but allowed all handling, including pick-up. Removed “use caution” sticker. Upon checking back, he’s become less vocal and seems to be settling in well. Loves toys, offered him a bunch to pick from. Picked up twice and held, grumbled a little the first time, but was easy to handle. Really head butts for attention, allows petting all over. Active, energetic, sturdy fella. Will check back later today and add to socialization list for now. UPDATE: Calm, attention-seeking, friendly, allows all handling, doing really well.
He may grumble a bit–and he is the loudest “nom nom nom” eater ever–but he’s all talk. Social, friendly, attention-seeking allows all handling. Great appetite. Unfortunately, his grumbles may startle some. He was far less vocal today, relaxed and social, just grumbled a little when I picked him up–and of course when he was eating.
