Cashmere A1112211 – 13 yr. spayed Siamese, OS:
Cashmere is a 13 year old spayed Tortie point cat who was surrendered by her owner due to the fact she is moving out of state and cannot take Cashmere with her. Owner stated that she has had Cashmere since she was 8 weeks old. Cashmere has no known medical issues.
Owner stated that when around strangers Cashmere is friendly and outgoing. She has spent time around children all ages and is relaxed and playful when around them. Owner states that when playing with adults and children Cashmere is gentle. Cashmere has never spent time around other cats or dogs so it is unknown how she will react.
Owner stated that on the way here in the car Cashmere was meowing. When being bathed she isn’t bothered. She has never had her nails trimmed so it is unknown how she will react. She likes to be held and brushed. She isn’t bothered if she is put in a carrier or disturbed while she sleeps.
