Spooks A1077087 is a 10month old male black DSH feline that was found as a stray in the owner’s neighborhood 6months ago & is being surrendered due to Spooks being born with no eyes & a baby in the home beginning to crawl around that is allergic. Spooks hasn’t been to a vet and currently has no known health issues/injuries.
Around strangers Spooks is shy (has to sniff you first to get a feel for you as he’s blind) then he’s friendly/outgoing. He lived with children ages newborn-13yrs old and was gentle, playful, relaxed/affectionate with them & the adults. Spooks hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal.
During car rides Spooks would meow sometimes. He isn’t bothered by the following: being brushed, having his nails trimmed, being picked up/held or being put into a carrier. Spooks hasn’t been given a bath or been disturbed while resting/sleeping.
For a New Family to Know:
Spooks is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, shy (at first), independent & quiet with medium activity level. He likes to sleep and or play with ball or mouse toys. When the owner is home Spooks follows them around sometimes. Spooks is an indoor only cat who sleeps on the sofa or cat tower. He eats dry Kit & Kabodoodle cat food 2-3x a day. Spooks is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within. He uses a carpeted cat tower to sleep and sometimes scratch on other times he doesn’t scratch on items in the home.
Spooks allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. Spooks was then picked up/held and placed into a kennel with ease. He did become a little nervous (body tensed up a bit and he began backing up/away slowly) when an injured cat in a kennel nearby began moving around his kennel and making pained sounds but he still allowed to be picked up and cradled in my arms as I placed him into the kennel.
