He is quiet during car rides. He has no issues with using the litterbox. His owner did not bathe him, trim his nails, or brush him. He doesnt like to be held for too long and can be difficult when being put in a carrier. He isnt bothered when disturbed while resting. For New Family: Maurice is described as friendly, affectionate, confident, independent and quiet. His activity level is low. His owner thought it was cute that he would lay in the bathroom sink and want to drink water from the faucet. When his owner was at home Maurice would generally stay in the closet, and generally only make his presence known when it was feeding time. He was kept indoors only and didnt show much interest in playing with toys, except for some string. He sleeps in the closet or under the owner’s bed. He likes dry food and wasnt a frequent eater. His bowl was left filled for the day. He enjoyed Greenies treats for breath. He is very litterbox trained and was using an uncovered litterbox with clumping litter. He would scratch on the furniture and carpeting and did not have a scratching post. During intake Maurice was relaxed and allowed collaring. He did not want to come out of the carrier that much and so the counselor did not handle him that much.
