I like a good joke, as you can see–also, I like a good dinner. Or lunch. Or breakfast. Dry or wet food, it doesn’t matter. I also like to follow my humans around the house. I’ve been told that is what “dogs” do, and that I will sit down if you ask me to. I’m a friendly guy, and I’m also playful and affectionate. I don’t mind being brushed or being put into my carrier. I am a little out of sorts at the shelter. Everyone is very nice to me, and I enjoy spending time with my human friends, but I think I would really be more relaxed and able to show you all the pawesome (I can’t help myself when it comes to puns sometimes!) guy that I am in a real home.

Scotty Daddy A1107388 is a male white & orange van tabby DSH who was given to the owner as a gift from a family member at 2wks old and is being surrendered due to the owner being afraid he’ll scratch their young children. He was last seen by a vet as a kitten and currently has no known health issues/injuries.
Scotty Daddy is friendly/outgoing with strangers. He’s lived with two Yorkies that he was kept separate from due to the owner stating they didn’t trust Scotty Daddy around them. He lived with two children ages 1yr & 6yrs and was gentle, playful, relaxed/affectionate (at times) with and the adults in the home. Scotty Daddy scratched the owner last night (it didn’t break skin or bleed).
During car rides Scotty Daddy will meow or be relaxed. He isn’t bothered by the following: being brushed or being put into a carrier. Scotty Daddy hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting, had his nails trimmed or been bathed (since he was a kitten). Scotty Daddy scratches on walls, sometimes furniture and doesn’t have a scratching post.
For a New Family to Know:
Scotty Daddy is described as friendly, affectionate, playful & aloof (at times) with medium activity level. When the owner is home Scotty Daddy follows them around sometimes. The owner stated Scotty Daddy is like a dog; he’ll sit if you ask him to sit. He’s an indoor cat that sleeps around the home, eats dry & wet Friskies cat food 2x a day and uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter within.
Scotty Daddy allowed all handling. He had a soft body, eyes and allowed to be scanned (-), collared & have his pictures taken however due to him moving and trying to jump off the back drop table his picture was taken in his kennel where he seemed at ease. He didn’t seem to mind being picked up at all and was placed into a kennel with ease.
Additional Behavior Note on Intake
According to the owner Scotty Daddy A1107388 scratched them on the arm as they used their body as a shield to protect their 6yr old that Scotty Daddy tried to scratch. The child woke up at around 1am to vomit and perhaps the noise startled Scotty Daddy to where he went to as the owner stated “attack” the child. Someone yelled at Scotty Daddy to where he retreated to the bathroom where he was scratching at the closed door. The scratch did not break skin or bleed as the owner covered herself with a blanket that was on the bed after the first scratch (did not break skin or bleed either). They stated right before this happened they had Scotty Daddy in their arms petting him and he was purring, they don’t understand why he did that and this is why they surrendered him.
