Thumbelina’s former owner stated she is friendly/outgoing with new people. She lived with 2 children ages 2-5 and was relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. She didn’t mind when they touched and grabbed her, but would walk away if they’re super loud.
Reaction to assessor: Thumbelina looks neutral in the cage when approached by the assessor.
Reaction to door opening: Thumbelina remains sitting upright on her cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open, meowing attention.
Reaction to touch: Thumbelina leans into the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body.
Reaction to Being Picked up: She calmly jumps back into the cage.
Placement determination: Average
Thumbelina interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
Thumbelina is a 14 year old female Tonkinese cat. Her family got her from her previous owner when they moved overseas 3 years ago. They surrendered her due to her health, the cost of vet care, lack of time, and personal problems. Thumbelina has been having hairballs usually daily for 2 months. She hasn’t been eating for the past 4 days (she was only given dry food at home during this time) and sometimes sounds congested.
Thumbelina is friendly/outgoing with new people. She lived with 2 children ages 2-5 and was relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. She didn’t mind when they touched and grabbed her, but would walk away if they’re super loud. She hasn’t lived with other pets. She’s never bit/scratched anyone.
Thumbelina meows in the car. She loves being picked up and held. She meows but is tolerant during baths. She doesn’t mind when someone trims her nails, brushes her, puts her in a carrier, or wakes her up.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Thumbelina’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, mellow, talkative, and low energy. She likes to give them kisses and nap in their laps. She lived inside and slept with her owners. She ate dry Meow Mix and got wet Fancy Feast food as a treat. She’s littertrained, used an uncovered box with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. Thumbelina scratched a scratching mat covered with rough rope and didn’t scratch furniture.
Thumbelina had a soft, relaxed body while I pet her, scanned her (-), collared her, positioned her for pictures, and put her in a carrier. She walked around on the counter and head butted us. In her carrier, she curled up and ate wet food. She didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize.
