Rex is a 10yr old neutered male domestic short haired cat that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of.
Rex takes well to strangers and opens right up to them, When interacting with strangers Rex plays in a gentle manner. He comes from a home with children and according to the owner, he is fine in the presence of a child (has lived with ages newborn to 12 years old). Rex has also been in the presence of another cat and a dog as well. When interacting with both, Rex is very respectful and interacts with them in a gentle manner. Rex has never bitten a person or another animal.
Rex loves his scratching post and uses the floor mounted one regularly. He did not like being put into his carrier and it is a struggle to do so, but no signs of aggression were observed. The owner has never tried to bath or trim Rex’s nails so it is unknown how he will respond to these grooming agents. However, he does enjoy having his coat brushed and this can be done with no problems. He likes to be held as well.
For a New Family to Know:
Rex is described to be friendly, playful, and affectionate with a medium to high activity level. When in the home Rex is the type of cat to follow you around seeking attention or be in the same room. Rex was an indoor only cat that is litter box trained. She was brought up using a standard hooded litter box and regular clay litter. Rex was fed fry and wet food whichever brand was on sale usually.
