For a New Family to Know
Nene is a friendly, affectionate, shy and independent cat. When at home, Nene likes to follow you and likes to be in the same room as you. Nene was kept as an indoors only cat and slept in his cat bed. Nene was free fed Purina Cat Complete dry food and fed two cans of Friskies wet food. Nene had a scratching post made of rope but he did not use it and instead scratched on furniture.
Upon intake, Nene came out of his carrier right away and allowed me to collar him. Nene allowed me to pick him up and place him into his kennel. Once inside, Nene was talkative and meowed when I passed by.
