Coco is an 8 year old spayed DSH who was surrendered by her owner due to allergies. The owner stated that he got Coco from a friend when Coco was 3 years old. Coco has no known medical problems.
Owner stated that when around strangers Coco is shy and keeps to herself. The owner stated that Coco has been around children ages 2-16 and she is respectful toward them. When playing with adults and children she plays gentle. Coco has spent time around other cats and is relaxed and affectionate. When playing with other cats she is gentle. Coco has never spent time around dogs so it is unknown how she will react.
Owner stated that when on the way here in the car Coco was meowing. When being bathed Coco is afraid and struggles to get away. She has never had her nails trimmed. She enjoys being brushed. When being held or put in the carrier Coco will struggle to get away. Coco isn’t bothered if she is disturbed while she is sleeping.
For a new family to know:
Owner described Coco as mellow, confident, and independent with a low activity level. When at home Coco likes to be in warm places like near the fire place or next to the heat vent. She also likes to sit and look out the window. She likes playing with balls and string. She has been kept indoors only and eats dry food. Coco is very much house broken and uses the litter box exclusively. She is used to an uncovered litter box with clumping clay. Owner stated that she scratches on a scratching post made out of wood and carpet.
Lying towards back of kennel as I approach with a low body. She hisses when the cage door opens and becomes tense, backing away with front legs stiff as the bear-claw reaches towards her. She swats at the claw multiple times, preventing it from touching her. I am unable to touch her head. Needs more time to adjust. Not interested in treats today. Sprayed feliway.
Sitting relaxed in a crouched position towards front of kennel, purring with eyes closed and ears forward. She vocalizes softly when spoken to and opens her eyes. She tenses her body and her ears flatten when I start to unlock the cage door – she comes forward and swats at the corner of her kennel. She watches the bear-claw approach her with whiskers pulled back and swats it two more times, preventing it from touching her. Retreats to the back of the kennel with a low body and tail down. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
