Jazzy purrs softly and gently rubs her body up against the kennel door.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Jazzy is calm and relaxed.
Reaction to touch:
Jazzy rolls around playfully, nuzzles against the assessor and allows petting all over. She continues to purr, gives head butts and is incredibly affectionate.
Reaction to being picked up:
Jazzy was a bit tense when picked up due to her girth, but she remains calm and allows all handling.
H – Healthy
No young children
No other cats OR multi-cat home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats
Jazzy remains social and easy to handle with her human caretakers, but please be aware that Jazzy may be uncomfortable around other cats. Their previous owner reports she was fearful and keeps her distance whenever she notices a neighboring cat. Due to the described behaviors, we recommend Jazzy goes to a home with no other cats OR into a multi-cat home with cat parents experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time.
Jazzy interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Her behavior in the care center remains social and she is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents, but because their owner reports she may hide whenever children are present, we recommend any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction.
Suitability With Children:
