SAFE 5/19/17 A volunteer writes: The Mona Lisa painting is gorgeous, but our Mona beats her hands down! She has such expressive green eyes! When you are in front of her kennel, she comes right up and tells you she wants to be petted. Mona is very decisive about what she wants. Don’t let the number fool you. She is very playful. She likes to be held. She likes treats. Come to the Manhattan Animal Care Center and be awestruck at how wonderful she is!

Mona is an 11 yr. old female domestic short hair mix. The owner surrendered Mona she moved to a place that does not allow pets. Mona has no health problems and the owner last took him to a vet over 8 years ago.
The owner states that around strangers Mona is friendly and outgoing. Mona has lived with two children ages 5 to 14 and is gentle and loves to play. Mona has lived with 3 other cats and got along well with them (they would eat sleep and play together). Mona has never bitten or scratched anyone.
Mona has never been bathed, had her nails trimmed. She does not mind having her coat brushed, being picked up but struggles when being placed in a cat carrier.
For a new family to know:
The owner describes Mona as friendly cat with a medium activity level. Mona has never played with toys; she lives mostly indoors and sleeps anywhere in the house that he wants. In the home Mona will follow the owner around and prefers to stay in same room as the owner. Mona eats various name brand dry cat foods and is feed two times a day. She is litter box trained and uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. Mona has never been given a scratching post so the owner does not know if he will use it or not.
Behavior during intake:
During intake Mona was somewhat tense with stiff body, she allowed us to put on collar, photograph and placed in a cat kennel.
