Cotton A1101242, 5 Years Old, Black and White DSH, Male
Intake condition EXAM REQ Intake Date 01/18/2017, From NY 11692, DueOut Date 01/18/2017,
Cotton is a 5 year old cat who was being watched for a neighbor and the neighbor is unable to take the cat back. He has been in the care of the caregiver for the past 6 months. Cotton’s previous medical history is unknown.
In the past 6 months, Cotton has lived with a 7 and 10 year old and allows the children to pet him when they are calm. The youngest child will sometimes play roughly (poking cat and bothering after Cotton tries to leave the situation) and then Cotton will arch his back and raise his paw as a warning. He has never actually resorted to scratching/biting. Cotton is social when strangers visit the house and will actually run towards the door when the doorbell rings. His history with other animals is unknown.
Cotton has scratched the cloth sofa countless times, but does not have a scratching post. Caregiver did say that the previous owner mentioned that he only used the scratching post in their home. He meows during car rides. The caregiver did not attempt to give Cotton a bath, trim nails, or brush his coat. He does allow people to pick him up and hold him and was easy to place into the carrier.
For a new family to know:
Cotton is described as a medium energy cat who is very affectionate but can also entertain himself. He does not have any toy, but does love to run around the house and jump on different surfaces. He used an uncovered litter pan with clay litter during his stay, but caregiver did mention that in his first home he used clumping litter with a covered litter pan. He is fed delicate dry food and wet food on occasion (once a month).
