Owner described Nibble as friendly, independent, and shy. When at home he will be in the same room as his owner. Since he has gotten older Nibble does not care to play with toys as much. He has been kept indoors only and eats both wet and dry food.Nibble is very much litter box trained and e is used to an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. He scratches on a scratching post made out of carpet.
