***SAFE 04/10/16***SWEET SENIOR! “A volunteer writes: Salem is a diamond in the ruff. He is a bit overweight and has some fur patches missing (he came into the shelter with matted fur that had to be shaved off, but will grow back). He is a big mush of a cat that is affectionate and gentle. I rubbed him from head to toe with a cat wipe without complaint. He would make a great companion and lap cat. Sadly, he is the kind of cat that can be overlooked at the shelter due to his age and condition. He needs someone who can see past the surface to the beautiful sweet cat he is; someone willing to give him some exercise/playtime and a healthy lean diet. Someone to give him the love and care he deserves. Won’t you give Salem a chance?” SALEM has an AVERAGE rating and needs a foster/adopter to save his life tonight!

03/26/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
Basic info: Salem is a 9 year old domestic short hair cat. Her previous owner brought her to MACC because she was nervous about her behavior around her small granddaughter. Salem is healthy according to her former owner but she has not been seen by a vet in over 3 years, Socialization: Salem does not do well with strangers. it takes him a long time to feel comfortable. He is not a very playful guy but he will play sometimes if he is really comfortable. He lived with a small child in his former home. The child tended to want to play with Salem and pull at him. Salem would growl and hiss at the child. He does not like to play. Salem has never been around other cats or dogs. He would probably do best in a single pet home with no children. Behavior History: Salem has never bitten or scratch another animal but he has come close to scratching his former owner and her grandchild. He will try to scratch at the drapes and carpet but not all the time. Salem has not been in a car that many times but she seems to be okay with it. He does not like getting a bath but after a little bit of a fight he dies allow it, He has never had his nails trimed because he struggles a lot any time it is attempted. He does not like being held. He also did not seem to enjoy the carrier. Salem is discribed as aloof and quiet. For a new family to know: Salem’s activity level is on the low side. When his owner was home with him he would tend to be in his favorite spot, near the window. He will follow the owner aeound if he wants food. Salem does not love to play but every once in awhile he will play with stuffed toys or catnip toys. He has been kept indoors only. Salem is used to dry food and wet food as a treat from time to time. He normally is fed once in the morning and once at night. He is litter box trained and he is used to an uncovered litter box with Freshstep litter. Salem is his own man. He is very simple. He just wants to hang out and not be bothered.
