Crayon is a 7 year old spayed Gray DSH that has a wound on her neck. Owner has had Crayon for 7 yrs.
The owner of Crayon passed away and the son of owner was no longer able to take care of Crayon.
According to the owner, around strangers, Crayon can be shy for a few minutes at first then she will loosen up and solicit attention. Around adults & children, Crayon is respectful and plays in a gentle manner. She has never been around dogs so her behavior is unknown. Around other cats, Crayon is relaxed, affectionate, and respectful. Crayon plays in an exuberant manner with other cats. She has never bitten a person or another animal before.
Previous owners stated that Crayon does not have any behavioral or litterbox issues. Owner did not bath, trim Crayon’s nails, or brush her coat, so it is unknown how she would react to these grooming agents. Crayon isn’t bothered by being picked up and held or by being put into a carrier. She sometimes meows or relaxes and sleeps during car rides.
For a New Family to Know:
Crayon is described as confident, mellow, and independent with a medium activity level. According to the previous owner, her favorite activity is eating. When in the home, Crayon is the type to follow you around. She likes to play with catnip toys. She was kept indoors only and is litter box trained. Crayon used an uncovered litter box and clumping litter. She was fed both dry & wet cat food. Crayon did not scratch so she was not provided a scratching post due to it not being needed.
