03/07/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/07/17 18:37 Romeo is friendly and outgoing towards strangers and approaches newcomers for a good sniff. He has spent time around his owner’s grandchildren (ages 1, 2, and 7) and he is relaxed and affectionate with them. He plays gently with both adults and children but has never spent time around other cats. He lives with a Shihtzu and is very tolerant of him. Romeo has never bitten another animal or human. Romeo is quiet and calm on the train. He has never been bathed or had his nails trimmed but loves being brushed and held. He used to struggle getting into the carrier but now tolerates it. When awoken from his slumber, Romeo wakes up and then goes right back to sleep. Romeo is friendly, affectionate, playful, and mellow. He has a medium activity level and when he’s ready to play enjoys balls, wand toys, string, catnip, stuffed animals, and laser pointers. His owner says he loves jumping on walls and getting tummy rubs. When his owner is home, he follows her around and enjoys sitting on her chest. He’s been kept indoors and sleeps on either his own bed on the floor in his owner’s room or on his owner’s bed. He’s litterbox trained and only went outside of his hooded litterbox full of crystal litter when he had a urinary infection. He scratches on the area rugs and has never had a scratching post. Romeo eats Friskies wet and dry food, about half a can, twice a day. His owner blends it with water because he does not like chunky wet-food.
