11/15/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/15/16 09:19 BASIC INFO Mincy is a 12 year old neutered DSH cat. His family adopted him from a vet when he was 1 year old and surrendered him with the 2 other cats from the home because they were evicted and due to cost. SOCIALIZATION Mincy is friendly/outgoing with new people. He spent time with children of all ages and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. He plays exuberantly with people. He was relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played exuberantly with the cats in the home (1 male and 1 female). He spent a lot of time with a male cat whom he was at the vet with. Though they aren’t related, their owner feels they grew up together like brothers. They cuddled together often. Mincy hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Mincy is relaxed in the car. He doesn’t mind when someone picks him up, holds him, puts him in a carrier, or wakes him up. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Mincy’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, quiet, and medium energy. He follows his family and sits in their laps. He plays with balls and stuffed toys. He lived inside and slept with his owner. He ate dry Friskies food and got shrimp as a treat. He’s littertrained, used an uncovered litterbox with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. He scratched the floor and wall but didn’t have a scratching post. Mincy had a soft, relaxed body. He followed me on the counter and head-butted me and was tolerant and soft-bodied while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, photographed him, picked him up, and placed him in a carrier. He didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize.

A volunteer writes: Mr. Snuggleuptokiss has entered the building! Schnuggles anyone? Kisses? Headbutts? Mincy has got it all to give. He’ll charm you with his sweet meows, and kind eyes. A lap is where he wants to be…and he plans on cuddling up in yours! Friendly is an understatement with this expressive little man. And at 12 years old he doesn’t sweat the small stuff, and he certainly knows the good stuff. Love needs love. Mincy’s your man! Another volunteer writes: No one can heat up a lap like Mr. Mincy, a 19-pound, super furry butterball who aced his behavior exam and is waiting patiently for the forever home he knows is out there. His previous owner told us that Mincy is friendly and outgoing with new people (that’s an understatement!), good with kids, and also gets along well with other cats. Lover, cuddler, snuggler–Mincy is the BFF and warm winter blanket you need in your life. Meet this charmer today!
