SAFE 11/11/17 Super sweet Laxi is hoping to go home with you today @MACC
Laxi 8801 3Y Black S DSH
Laxi was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
Resting on bedding in cubby, soft eyes and body. Stretched and rolled over when spoken to. Lay in place when door opened, leaned into pets, rolled all the way over. Ate offered treats.
Reaction to assessor:
Laxi remains neutral, resting on her cage bedding during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Laxi remains soft body, alert with normal shape eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Laxi stands with tail up, engages the front, soliciting attention.
Reaction to touch:
Laxi head bunts the assessor’s hand, purrs and gently love nips followed by licking and leans in for more petting on the head and body.
Reaction to being picked up:
She allows the pickup then jumps back into the cage .
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Laxi interacts with the observer and appreciates attention, but she has a tendency to love nip. His behavior remains suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience, provided the adopter is aware of these behaviors and is able to comfortably manage them. Though we believe this cat is displaying behaviors appropriate for new or experienced cat parents, she may not be a great fit for young children. Any home with older children prepared to adopt this cat should conduct a thorough interaction and endeavor to monitor this cat around their children to prevent these behaviors from being reinforced.
