Is Notorious C.A.T. spayed or neutered? yes
Is Notorious C.A.T. up to date on vaccinations? no
Why the animal is being rehomed: Multiple reasons- We just moved, and kitty is having a difficult time adjusting to the new environment. Prior to this, I'd rented. However, I purchased a place now and have taken extra steps to keeping the place cleaner and nicer overall, which includes a covered litterbox, which she didnt adapt to, and unbeknownst to me, started urinating on my rug. Now it's become a habit with her on the same rug. To be fair, the rug was owned previously by someone with two cats, so that probably did not help either. Up until this point, she's never gone outside her box. Also, I'm not a cat person. I took this cat in because I didnt want to see her get put down when my friend's mother was no longer able to care for her. I still don't want to see her get put down. Shes a great cat with a good disposition, and she deserves a happy life. Third, I'm rarely home. It's true that I can set out food and water for a few days, and kitty will survive, but she's very social and enjoys the company of others.
What are your two favorite things about Notorious C.A.T.? She's relatively social, but also usually pretty calm.
How long have you had Notorious C.A.T.? I've had this cat for six years.
Where did you get Notorious C.A.T.? I got Notorious from a friend's mother, who became ill and could no longer care for kitty.
Has Notorious C.A.T. ever bitten someone? No
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: Like many cats, she will give you a warning bite when she has become overstimulated from petting. She does not bite though in a mean-spirited way.
What, if any, medical or behavioral concerns does Notorious C.A.T. have? Possibly bad teeth. I took her to the vet in late June, as kitty started throwing up her food. It was determined that kitty had a bad tooth. The vet administered an antibiotic, and the vomiting has reduced drastically. However, there's no guarantee that it won't happen again. The vet, however, also took bloodwork and said the cat is very healthy and has the bloodwork of a kitten. Also, we just moved, and she seems to have had a difficult time adjusting to the new surroundings. I got her a new, covered litterbox, which she does not care for, and she's had a few accidents on the rug. This is more my fault than hers though, as up to this point, she's always been great about using her box (but it was also never covered before).
Has Notorious C.A.T. lived with other animals? Yes
If yes to the above, which animals has Notorious C.A.T. lived with? For about a year, we lived with a puppy, a female red heeler. We also lived with a female cat who was about 6 years of age. Currently, I also have an 8 year old tortoise.
Has Notorious C.A.T. actively fought with other animals in the home? No
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: N/A
Does/did Notorious C.A.T. hide from other animals in the home? Yes
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: For a year, we lived with a red heeler. Kitty didnt not like the dog, so she often hid from the dog. If the dog bothered her too much (chased her, got too curious/close to her face), she would occasionally just give the dog a little swat to let her know to back off. Kitty also lived with another cat in the home, but in two separate rooms. Notorious does not seem to enjoy the presence of other cats, but may be okay with kittens.
How does Notorious C.A.T. interact with animals outside of the home? She seems to be a little intimidated and will hide.
Are you requiring that Notorious C.A.T. not go into a family with certain types of pets? Yes
If yes to the above, please explain which types of pets you are restricting: Preferably no dogs, but especially younger, more hyper dogs. She may do okay with a dog that's more relaxed and will mostly just leave her alone. She does not like other cats. She will typically hide and growl and hiss, but wont really fight (at least from what I've seen).
Has Notorious C.A.T. lived with any children under 18? No
Notorious C.A.T. has lived with children of these ages: N/A
Does/did Notorious C.A.T. hide or avoid children in the home? Yes
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: I do have younger nieces and nephews who visit (youngest is 9, but was 3 when I adopted the cat cat), and she's fine with them. If they start to get too hyper, kitty will just go hide under a bed until they leave.
Does/did Notorious C.A.T. display any forms of aggression toward children in the home? No
If yes to the above, please explain the circumstances: She will hide before she becomes aggressive.
Are you requiring that Notorious C.A.T. not go into a family with children under a certain age? No
If yes to the above, please list your restrictions: I prefer she not go to a home with very small children, but only because children tend to manhandle animals and get a little hyper. Kitty likes a pretty chill, quiet environment, but with people who are willing to pet and play with her.
Does Notorious C.A.T. have any fears? The vacuum cleaner, any time anyone rings my door buzzer, and any loud or sudden noises.
Notorious C.A.T.'s overall activity level: Moderately active
How does Notorious C.A.T. usually get exercise? Playing indoors, Other,
What should the next family should know about Notorious C.A.T.: She LOVES wet cat food, anything on a string, her laser pointers, and drinking out of toilets. She will act like she's being starved, even when her dish is 2/3full. She sheds, sometimes a lot, and she HATES going to the vet. She likes attention, and seems to take to most men faster than women, but is very friendly to basically everyone. She loves to try to escape anytime I come home, and she loves to stare out the window. She has no front claws, so shes been an inside cat,and she's microchipped. She will want to fall asleep next to you every night. Shes overall a very good, sweet-natured, well-behaved cat.
