01/29/17 16:39 Basic Information: KitKat is a 2 year old spayed Gray Tabby DSH that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner has had KitKat since she was a kitten and could no longer have her due to her newborn grandson being allergic to her. Socialization: According to the owner, around strangers, KitKat is friendly and outgoing. Around adults, KitKat is relaxed and affectionate and plays in a gentle manner. KitKat has only been exposed to previous owner’s newborn grandson and she was respectful and relaxed. She has never been around other cats or dogs so her behavior is unknown. She has never bitten a person or another animal before. Behavior: Previous owners stated that KitKat does not have any behavioral or litterbox issues. Owner did not bath or trim KitKat’s nails so it is unknown how she would react to these grooming agents. KitKat enjoys having her coat brushed. KitKat allows being picked up and held but only for a short period of time, she will attempt to struggle free when she has had enough. KitKat isn’t bothered by being put into a carrier. For a New Family to Know: KitKat is described as friendly, mellow, and affectionate with a medium activity level. When in the home, KitKat is would sometimes follow you around if she wants attention and other times she would just be in her favorite spots. She likes to play with the laser pointer and socks. She was kept indoors and is litter box trained. KitKat used a hooded litter box and clumping litter. She was fed dry cat food. KitKat would scratch on the couch but the previous owner did not provide her a scratching post.
