Arrived from same home as K17-087665, but all are housed separately (??). Highly attention-seeking, vocal, tends to grumble some, but was social and friendly when I opened cage door; head butts (huge cat, giant head), pushes in, allows head and shoulder rubs, tail begins to sway, starts following hand intently with further petting. Never swatted or used mouth, but seems to overstimulate himself. He’s definitely a big fat housecat, would benefit by having an experienced family. Only 2yo, is respectful of his feline friends and is tolerant of children (per owner profile). Gave some new toys and chicken (which he didn’t eat).
Sprawled out on blanket, relaxed, a little aloof (new photo submitted for profile; he seems quiet happy with himself, confident). Perks up quickly, immediately comes to the front for attention. Really leans in for attention after I open cage door, appreciates a good head rub. Allows petting all along his back, but seems to get a bit overstimulated at times, gives clear signals. A huge fat cat, bright and alert, attention-seeking, social, friendly, used to living with other cats. Allowed pick up but wasn’t thrilled about it. Might suggest doing in-kennel interactions w/ potential adopters.
Basic Information: Lubah is a 2 year old altered male domestic shorthair. He was given by a family member a year ago. It was mention he had health issues in the past which is discuss in medical memos. Owner surrenders Lubah due to moving.

He is usually tolerant towards children. He lived with two dogs that were American pit-bulls and German Shepherds. Owner stated Lubah is fearful and will keep his distance.

Behavior: Lubah has never bitten or scratched anyone. He meows during his car ride to the shelter. He was given bath in January and was afraid of the water. He never had a nail trim and doesn’t like to be picked up and held.
For a New Family to Know: Lubah is trained to use the bathroom in litter box with a hood. He likes to sit in chairs and follow owner when hungry. He eats dry food called Meow mix or tuna. Lubah spends most of his time on the couch. Owner believes Lubah will do best in one cat home.
Intake Behavior: Upon intake Lubah was fearful and eyes were dilated. He hisses when going inside carrier. He scanned negative for a microchip and allowed all handling.
