Around strangers Perry is shy for a few minutes and plays somewhat rough. Perry has spent time with children ages 5 to 12 years old around then Perry is respectful and doesn’t play. Perry has never been around other cats or dogs so it is unknown how he will react towards them.
Perry has bitten/ scratched when he plays too rough with is previous care taker. Perry will bite/scratch at feet when people are walking past him. Perry will meow while riding in a car. Perry’s previous owner has never tried to give him a bath so it is unknown how he will react to that event. Perry will struggle when having his nails trimmed, having his coat brushed, and being picked up/held. Perry is not bothered by being placed in a carrier or being disturbed while resting/sleeping.
For a New family to Know:
Perry is described as playful, mellow, shy and quiet with a low activity level. When at home Perry will follow around his owner and likes to play with string, stuffed toys and laser pointers. Perry was kept indoors only and was fed both wet and dry food. Perry is litter box trained and uses a hooded litter box with clumping litter. Perry was given a scratching post made of carpet but did not use it.
