Luke is a domestic short hair cat who was surrendered along with house mates Cookie and Michael due to their previous owner moving to a place where animals are not allowed and unable to find them a new home.
Around strangers Luke is shy for a few minutes and plays gently/exuberantly with adults and children. Luke lived with children ages 6 through 13 years of age; around them Luke was relaxed and affectionate. Luke has lived with two other cats that she was relaxed and affectionate around. Luke has never lived with dogs so it is unknown how Luke would react to being around them.
Luke has never bitten/scratched another person/animal and has not shown any concerning behaviors while at home. Luke has never been in a car so it is unknown how she will react to that event Luke is fearful of being given a bath. Luke isn’t bothered by getting her nails trimmed, being picked up/held, placed in a carrier or disturbed while resting/sleeping.
For a New Family to Know:
Luke is described as mellow, confident, shy and quiet with a low to medium activity level. When at home Luke will follow around his owner and likes to play with string. Luke was kept indoors only and was fed dry food. Luke is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. Luke was not given a scratching post so it is unknown how he will react to one.
Luke was a bit timid during intake but warmed up to staff after some time. During intake Luke allowed staff to collar, scan for a microchip and take pictures with no signs of aggression.
