Cris is a domestic short hair cat who was surrendered due to his previous owner having too many pets.
Around strangers Cris is friendly and plays gently with adults and children. Cris has lived with/spent time with children off all ages, around them he is relaxed and affectionate. Cris has lived with cats of different genders and ages, around them he is relaxed and affectionate. Cris has never been around dogs so it is unknown how he will react to them.
Cris has never bitten/scratched another person/ animal and has no behavior issues. Cris is relaxed when riding in a car. Cris is not bothered when being given a bath. Cris’s previous owner did not attempt to trim his nails so it is unknown how he will react to that event.
For a New family to Know:
Cris is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, and quiet with a medium activity level. When at home Cris likes to follow around his owners and like to play with feathers. Cris was kept indoors only and was fed dry food. Cris is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. Cris use a scratching post made of rough rope.
Cris was shy during intake and tried to hide and stay in his carrier. Cris allowed staff to collar, scan for a microchip and take pictures with no signs of aggression.
Hiding in litter box at back of kennel, motionless. With a slow, gentle approach I was able to give some head rubs and gentle passes over the body, but doesn’t react much. Body tenses and ears turn back slightly. Needs time to adjust. Sprayed Feliway, gave fresh wet food and some treats. Initial med exam pending.
Hiding in litter box, quiet, alert but eyes down, ears pulled back a bit. Let me give head rubs when I slowly and gently approached. Didn’t move out of the litter box or react much, but tolerated the attention and petting. He likes tuna. Sneaked up to the front to eat some I’d left. Added a Kuranda bed to his kennel. Needs time. Sprayed Feliway, gave him a toy and left some more tuna.
BARH – hissed, tried to flee, tried to bite – exam concluded in net.
N~ 8 months
Teeth white, mild gingivitis
Coat clean – no flea dirt or parasites found.
