**SAFE 07/01/16** MADDOX is as cuddly as a teddy bear. Just one look at his sad eyes, and you want to give him a hug and tell him everything will be okay. This poor guy lived for 9 years with his owner, who now has an allergy and dropped him off at the shelter, where he is on tomorrow’s list to be killed. MADDOX is a sweetheart, who loved playing with children, ages 7 to 15 years old and was gentle with them. MADDOX used to follow his owner around. He was basically a lap cat, who is now without a home or a lap to call his own!! MADDOX is friendly and shy, and he’s not feeling so cozy in his new surroundings. He’s been hiding inside a hidey den but will peek through a peek hole to see who’s coming to visit him. He’s hoping it’s a new home!! MADDOX would do great in an experienced pet home where he could have time to warm up to his new owners. This guy has had some hard luck recently. You can change it around for him! Please foster or adopt cuddly MADDOX today!!!

He was described as a friendly and shy cat, with a medium activity level. In the home Maddox will follow the owner around and prefers to stay in same room as the owner. Reaction to assessor: Maddox was inside a hidey den, but looks out from a peep hole when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Maddox shifts his position inside the den, but continues to look at the assessor after. Reaction to cage door opening: Maddox remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Maddox sniffs the assessor’s hand and lip licks. He looks out from the opening, and allows petting when approached slowly. He seems to appreciate touch, but will shift around from time to time and has his tail wrapped closely to his body. He leans in slightly when pet on his cheeks, but seems wary of the environment. Behavior Determination: Experience Maddox tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. The owner reports he does well around children, but because he displays signs of stress in the care center, we recommend any future home with young children should conduct a slow and thorough interaction before adopting.
