She mostly ignores the small dogs, but will sleep with big dogs and play with big dogs. She has never bitten a person or animal. In the car, Patty is quiet and relaxed. She will go to the bathroom outside of the litter box if the litter box is very dirty, but it has only happened a few times under these circumstances. Patty will tolerate a bath and getting her nails clipped. She enjoys being brushed, and does not mind being put in a carrier or being woken up when she is sleeping. Patty will accept being picked up and held for a few minutes but will struggle if someone is holding her for a lengthy period of time. Patty has been described as friendly and independent. She has a medium activity level. She likes to sleep in her favorite spots (carpet and sofa) but before and during mealtime she will run around and play. She likes balls and stuffed toys. She is an indoor only cat. Patty has been eating half a cup of grain free dry food 2 times a day and is used to using a hooded litter box with clumping litter. She does not scratch furniture, but likes to use a vertical scratching post made with rough rope. At the ACC, Patty was very quiet in her carrier. When counselors opened her carrier door she didn’t walk out immediately. She allowed counselor to put a hand in the carrier and rubbed against it. She left her carrier when food was placed in front of it. She tried to move her head away when being collared, but eventually allowed counselors to put it on her. Patty rubbed against counselors quite a bit. She was trying to rub against the camera when pictures were being taken of her. When her carrier door was opened again, she ignored it and flopped onto her side to be pet. She let counselors pet her all over her body. She walked back into her carrier when food was placed inside of it.
