MERLIN – A1101189 7M BLACK DSH N
OWNER SURRENDER: 1/08/2017
Merlin is a 6.5 month old neutered DSH cat. He was found as a bottle baby. His family cannot keep him due to severe allergies.
Merlin is friendly/outgoing with new people. He approaches strangers and allows petting. He doesn’t spend any time hiding. During a party, a 2 year old child approached and pet him and he hissed at her. Merlin lived with a female cat. He was relaxed and played somewhat rough with her. He hasn’t bit scratched anyone.
Merlin doesn’t mind being picked up, put in a carrier, or bathed. He’s nervous in the car.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Merlin’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, active, curious, needy, bold, and talkative. He follows them everywhere and often sits in their laps. He plays with cat dancers, stuffed toys, and balls. He lived inside and slept on the couch. He ate dry Friskies Surf N’ Turf and wet Meow Mix foods. He’s littertrained, used a covered litterbox with corn litter, and didn’t have accidents. He scratched a vertical, rope-covered post and didn’t scratch furniture.
Merlin was hissing and growling in his carrier. He was quiet and tolerant while his owner pet him and picked him up. He slept in his carrier in the kennel. When approached, he usually sat up and looked at us. He sometimes hissed.
