Nyx is an elderly neutered domestic short hair. He was found as a stray and kept for a couple of weeks by finder to see if an owner claims him. Finder stated he was so sweet and sociable he must have an owner. Finder did not have any luck so she surrendered.
Finder stated Nyx was really affectionate with everyone that visited her home. He never spent time with kids, cats, dogs, or any other kind of animal. He did not scratch or bite anyone during the two weeks with finder.
Nyx displayed no behavior issues and was clam during a few car rides. Nyx was never bathed nor had a nail trimming while with finder. Finder stated he tolerated all handling. He actually looked to be petted and picked up all the time.
