For a New Family to Know
Stewey is a friendly mellow guy who tends to be independent. He has a medium activity level and his previous owners loved that he was independent and “acted like a human” He loves taking photos and will often pose for them. In the home he tends to follow you around or be in the same room as you. He loves all toys and was kept indoors. He was fed friskies and only likes fish flavored things. He was often found cuddling with the family dog and sleeping in her bed. He is used to a hooded litter box with pellet litter. He is unable to scratch furniture as he is declawed from the front paws.
Stewey walked right out of the carrier into the kennel. When counselor attempted top collar him he would hiss and display a tense body as well as swat at the collar. When counselor attempted to pick up he would hiss and turn his head. Counselor attempted an hour later and he had dilated pupils as well as hissing.
