***SAFE 03/30/17***A volunteer writes: If Snorlax were mine, he would have all sorts of fun nicknames, like Snorly, Snorgle, Snorkel, Snorfle, and Laxalicious. This strapping young and friendly boy has a stunning coat, with a bright white face and chest framed by a shiny black cape. Take a close look at his face and you may find yourself spending hours seeing different images in the white patch stretching from his forehead to the tip of his nose. Is it a ghost, a witch, maybe an iceberg? You’ll have lots of time to create poems with his name and contemplate the artistry of his coat while he rolls over for petting and rests calmly by your side. We’re told that he was relaxed almost from the start of his sojourn at the shelter. Awoken from a deep sleep by a gentle nudge, he immediately came to the front of his kennel and leaned in for petting. He’ll need a lot of playtime and toys to keep him occupied, and we know he’ll find the purrfect kitty parents who will do that for him and much more.

03/17/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/17/17 16:16 Basic information: Snorlax is a 1 yr. old male domestic short hair mix. The owner surrendered Snorlax because Snorlax is becoming destructive in the home. Snorlax has no health problems and the owner has not taken him to a vet. Socialization: The owner states that around strangers Snorlax is friendly and outgoing. Snorlax has never been around children or other animals so the owner has no idea how He would behave around them. Snorlax has never bitten or scratched anyone. Behavior: Snorlax has never been bathed, had his nails trimmed. He does not mind having his coat brushed but hates being picked up and being placed in a cat carrier (he will struggle and swat the person). For a new family to know: The owner describes Snorlax shy and fearful cat with a medium activity level. Snorlax has played with string cat toys; he lives mostly indoors and sleeps anywhere in the house that he wants. In the home Snorlax will follow the owner around and prefers to stay in same room as the owner. Snorlax eats name brand dry cat food and is open feed. He is litter box trained but often poops and urinates outside of the litter box. Snorlax has never been given a scratching post so the owner does not know if he will use it or not. Behavior during intake: During intake Snorlax was very tense with stiff body, he allowed us to scan (-) put on collar (however he would fletch and twitch when touched on the neck), photographed and placed in cat kennel.

Please keep in mind there are many reasons why a cat may be uncomfortable with this type of handling and that this may not necessarily translate into a home environment. We recommend any future home with children be counseled in respecting the cat’s space and for the family to use care when picking him up, especially while he is still adjusting to his new home. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parent – Snorlax tolerates some attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
