Lacy Ann A1089260 is a 15yr old spayed calico DSH feline who was bought from a petstore 15yrs ago & is being surrendered along with her “sister” Diamond A1089259 due to the owner not wanting them anymore/a child is allergic to them. They were last seen by a veterinarian a few years ago and currently have no known health issues/injuries.
Around strangers Lacy Ann is friendly/outgoing. She’s lived with a 1yr old but will hiss & or run/hide from them. With the adults she was gentle, relaxed, playful & affectionate with them. Diamond is a bully towards her and would swat, hiss and or chase her if Lacy Ann attempted to do things before Diamond would. Lacy Ann hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Lacy Ann isn’t bothered by the following: having her nails trimmed, being brushed, being in a car, being picked up/held or with being placed into a carrier. She hasn’t been given a bath nor has she been disturbed while sleeping/resting.
For a New Family to Know:
Lacy Ann is described as friendly, confident, playful (at times), mellow & quiet with a low activity level. When the owner is home she follows them around sometimes. She enjoys ball & mouse toys at times and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home. Lacy Ann eats wet & dry Friskies 1-3x a day. She is uncovered litter box trained with crystal or clumping litter within. Lacy Ann doesn’t have a scratching post since she and Diamond were front declawed when younger because they scratched the couches.
Lacy Ann allowed all handling and was social. She allowed to be collared and taken pictures of. Lacy Ann didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease. Once another cat arrived Lacy Ann became agitated. She retreated to the back of the kennel, her body became tense and she began to hiss and growl.
