Behavior Determination: Average
Missy was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Missy is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
Missy is a three year old female domestic short hair cat who was surrendered due to her previous owner moving and not able to tak eher with him.
Around strangers Missy is friendly, outgoing, and plays gently with adults. Missy has never been around children, cats or dogs so it is unknown how she will react to being around them.
Missy has never bitten another person or animal and has no behavior issues and enjoys being brushed, picked /up held, being placed ina a carrier, and doesn’t mind being disturbed while she is resting/sleeping. Missy’s previous owner did not attempt to trim her nails or give her a bath so it is unknown how she will react to those events.
For a New Family to Know:
Missy is described as: friendly, affectionate, playful, confident and quiet with a medium activity level. When at home Missy like to sit on her owner but doesn’t play with toys. Missy was kept indoors only and was fed dry food. Missy is litter box trained and used a hooded litter box with clumping litter. Missy was not given a scratching post so it is unknown if she will use one.
Missy allowed staff to collar, scan for a microchip and take pictures with no signs of aggression. Missy was very vocal during intake but allowed staff to pet her and would rub her head on staff.
