When his coat is being brushed it is also a struggle and he will hiss or swat. When being picked up and held it depends on how he feels. When being placed in a carrier he isn’t bothered. Mickey is described as being independent with a medium activity level that would do best in a single home. He enjoys lying down and being in his favorite spot.
