He is used to eating dry food and being indoors all day. He is very litter box trained and uses a covered litter box.

Mr. Shadow was very loose bodied during intake when i opened the carrier he was giving me head butts and put his paws on my shoulders and rubbed his head against mine he was rolling over when i scratched his ears and was purring very loudly.
