Mark is a 5 year old male neutered brown tabby and white domestic shorthair cat who is being surrendered because the owner wants him to have a better home. Mark has been with his family about 5 years.
Mark lived with 1 adult. There was one other cat in the home which he is receptive to and engages in play with. Mark has been exposed to visitors and will be cautious at first watching from a distant and then will approach to interact and the family says he is relaxed and receptive. He is also described as being tolerant and gentle with children. He has not been exposed to dogs. He uses an open litter box with tidy cat litter.
Mark will flee for a bath but is not defensive. Mark prefers not to be picked up and is tolerant of being brushed. He allows nail trim but it may take some time because the family says it is best to go slow. Mark will flee from a cat carrier but can be placed in one and or quiet for a car ride.
He has a vertical scratching post made carpet and family says they prefer this over cardboard. He uses the scratching post but may also scratch the rug in the home. He enjoys a small plush toy that he likes to keep with him. When the family is home Mark will stay to himself and relax there. When home alone he is well behaved but can interested in novele items like plastic bags. Mark likes dry food.
Upon intake Mark was cautious to introduction and would not leave the carrier but allowed contact when approached slowly. Counselor was able to scan for microchip (positive) and photograph but did not collar as Mark after allowing so petting on the head became less tolerant and retreated to the back of the carrier.
A bit anxious at first, tail started swishing, but eased and really began to get into our interaction, playful, attention-seeking. Allowed all handling. Has a bright, distinctive face with a twinkle in his eyes. Removed “use caution” sticker. Likes treats and catnip.
Has a glimmer in his eye, always look likes he grining. Has a lot of energy, busily moves around his kennel, rolls around sometimes, alert and attentive, social and friendly when I open cage door, allows all petting. let me pick up and hold, did hiss at the cat in the kennel when he saw him while being held, but I was easily able to handle him. When returned to his kennel he was a little tense, tail swishing, but quieted quickly, allowing and soliciting attention.
