Cookie is an 3 year old domestic short hair cat who was surrendered with her housemate Sam due to their previous owner having medical issues.
Around strangers Cookie is friendly, outgoing and plays gently with adults and children. Cookie has spent time with children of various ages and was relaxed and affectionate around them. Cookie has lived with one other cat who she is relaxed and affectionate toward. Cookie has never been around dogs so it is unknown how she will react to being around them.
Cookie has never bitten/scratched another person or animal. Cookie has no known behavior issues and is relaxed when riding in a car. Cookie enjoys being given a bath, having her nails trimmed, being brushed, being picked up/held, being placed in a carrier, and isn’t bothered when being disturbed while resting/sleeping,
For a New Family to Know:
Cookie is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and mellow with low activity level. When at home Cookie will follow around her owner and likes to play with balls and string. Cookie was kept indoors only and used an uncovered litter box with clumping litter Cookie eats both wet and dry food.
Cookie allowed staff to pick her up and place her in her cage and pet her with no signs of aggression.
Arrived from same home as Sam, A0793537. Just had has initial medical, so only brief interaction for now. Hiding in litter box, tense and wary, head low. Sniffs food and tuna treat when offered but doesn’t eat, hisses if approached to be touched, may demonstrates distance-increasing behavior if interaction continues. Needs time to adjust. Sprayed Feliway and cage covers added. Adding to socializaton list.
Not adjusting well to the shelter environment so far. Remains curled up in litter box, facing the side, tense and wary. Hisses when approached, may swat, does not get out of the box. Sprayed some Feliway, offered some treats and catnip-infused toys. Not showing much of an appetite yet.
