Experienced cat parent – Mili may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Has collar stuck around mouth – mouth bleeding. Allows medical staff to cut it off without hissing or striking. Sits upright towards front of kennel and tolerates petting along head with a stiff body and ears flat and eyes squinting. May be uncomfortable due to collar just being removed. Sprayed feliway.
Sitting upright in front of kennel. He tilts his ears when the cage door opens and bends his head out of the way to avoid petting, body tense with tail wrapped around his body. He briefly tolerates petting along his head with titled ears before he raises his paw. Keeps trying to bed body out of the way to avoid being touched. Still unsure – not interested in further interaction today. Sprayed feliway.
Sitting in kennel, upright with a focused expression. He comes forward when I open the door and then leans away when I reach towards him. He plays with the bear-claw when I try to use it to pet him. Fixated on all sudden movements- has a lot of energy. Not too interested in being pet, he begins to push my hand away with his claws un-extended when I try to pet him. Very interested in toys! I give him some toys and spray feliway.
Mili is a male domestic short hair cat who is being surrendered due to his previous owner moving out of the country and unable to take him with her.
Around strangers Mili is friendly and plays gently with adults. Mili has spent time with children ages 2 to 5 years old and would usually run away from them since they played rough with him. Mili spent time around other cats but they did not get along with him even though he would be relaxed around them. Mili has not been around dogs so it is unknown how he will react to being around them.
Mili has never bitten another person or animal and has not shown any concerning behavior while at home. Mili enjoys riding in a car, having his nails trimmed, being brushed, being picked up/held, being placed in a carrier and doesn’t mind being disturbed while resting/sleeping. Mili’s previous care taker did not attempt to give Mili a bath recently so she is unknown how he will react to that event.
For a New family to Know:
Mili is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident and talkative with a very high activity level. When at home Mili will follow around his owner and likes to play with socks and wand toys. Mili was kept indoors only and was fed both wet and dry food. Mili is litter box trained and uses a hooded litter box with clumping litter. Mili used a scratching post made of carpet and yarn.
Mili was friendly during intake and enjoyed being pet and carried by staff. Mili allowed staff to collar, scan for a microchip, and take pictures with no signs of aggression.
