Michael lived with children ages 6 through 13 years of age; around them Michael was relaxed and affectionate. Michael has lived with two other cats that she was relaxed and affectionate around. Michael has never lived with dogs so it is unknown how Michael would react to being around them. Behavior: Michael has never bitten/scratched another person/animal and has not shown any concerning behaviors while at home. Michael has never been in a car so it is unknown how she will react to that event Michael is fearful of being given a bath.

For a New Family to Know: Michael is described as mellow, confident, shy and quiet with a low to medium activity level. When at home Michael will follow around his owner and likes to play with string. Michael was kept indoors only and was fed dry food.
