Mariano is a 5 year old neutered Black & White DMH that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Previous owner has had Mariano since she was a kitten and can no longer have him due to the fact that his newborn is allergic.
According to the previous owner, around strangers, Mariano is shy. He will hide when there is company for the whole duration that they are there. Around adults and children, Mariano is relaxed and respectful but is not interested in socializing and does not play. He has been around other cats and he is relaxed and respectful and tolerant but he is not interested in interacting. Mariano has never been around dogs so his behavior is unknown. He has never bitten a person or another animal before.
Previous owners stated that Mariano does not have any behavioral or litter box issues. Mariano attempted to struggle when being put into a carrier.
For a New Family to Know:
Mariano is described as shy, mellow, shy, and independent with a low activity level. When in the home, Mariano is the type to do his own thing and rarely seek attention. He does not play with any toys. He was kept indoors and is litter box trained. Mariano used a hooded and uncovered litter box and clumping litter. He was fed dry cat food. Mariano did not use a scratching post because he does not scratch.
Mariano came to the shelter surrendered by an owner who described him as shy, mellow and independent and notes that he is relaxed and respectful around children and other cats.
Reaction to assessor: Mariano is lying in the back of his cage, curled tightly.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Mariano looks at the assessor with wide eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Mariano remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Mariano allows petting all over body, but remains still.
Reaction to pick up: Mariano immediately steps out of assessor’s arms.
Placement Determination: Experience
Mariano does not approach the assessor or solicit attention, but allows all petting and handling. Mariano may be more of an independent cat, and may require additional adjustment time to a new home environment. Mariano is exhibiting behavior suited to experienced cat parents.
