CICERO – A1083035
Safe - 9-1-2016 Manhattan
SAFE 9/1/16 Cicero has been here at MACC for over a month!! He’s such a friendly guy that truly deserves a chance at a life in a loving home.
A volunteer writes: “Highly social”, our behavior assessor wrote about super sweet tabby Cicero. Let me tell you, there’s no better way to describe this people-loving Mr. Popularity. Cicero is all about making friends with humans. When I called his name in the cat adoption room, he bounded right to the front of his cat condo, bowing his head for a petting session and letting out a hearty meow of happiness. Easy, confident, and calm, Cicero is the ultimate shelter cat ambassador. Bring him into your life, and he’ll be your best friend, wing man, and social director.

Cicero came into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He has been a bit timid at times, but generally easy to handle, calm, and tolerant of being picked up in the care center. Cicero was motivated to interact with the assessor and was highly social during his behavior evaluation.
Reaction to assessor: Cicero is resting at the back of the cage when the assessor approaches. He looks up at her, body and eyes soft.
Reaction to cage door opening: Cicero stands and approaches.
Reaction to touch: Head butts and rubs his cheeks on the assessor’s hand. He allows all petting and remains at the front of the cage for attention.
Placement determination: Average
Cicero interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting.
This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
