TM – Treatable-Manageable
Zoey tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to her new home and family. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.

For a New Family to Know
Zoey is a mellow, confident, and independent cat. Zoey enjoyed sitting by the carpeted steps in her previous home and tended to keep to herself in the home. Zoey was a mostly indoors cat but would go outside when the door was open. Zoey slept in her cat bed and was free-fed dry food every day. Zoey is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box. Zoey also had a scratching post made out of carpet but she would sometimes scratch furniture.
Upon intake, Zoey allowed me to pick her up and take her out of her carrier. Zoey allowed to be collared and picture to be taken and allowed pets on the head. Once in the kennel, Zoey would come up to the door and allowed her chin to be scratched. With the door open, I pet Zoey’s head and all along the top of her body. She began purring and arched her butt up. When I tried petting her near her rear and back legs, she would turn around and bite my hand with very little pressure. If I continued to pet her, her tail would began to rattle and she would bite me again, with soft pressure.
