Is Houdiwatbon (Houdi) spayed or neutered? yes
Is Houdiwatbon (Houdi) up to date on vaccinations? no
Why the animal is being rehomed: After 3 years, Houdiwatbon has not learned to coexist peacefully with my toddler. We have another baby on the way and with her extreme jealousy I think re-homing her to a house with out small children is the best option. She can get the attention she deserves with out the stress of small children in the home.

What should the next family should know about Houdiwatbon (Houdi): Houdi has been with us since she was a kitten, she had a hard time adjusting to our new house when we moved a year and a half ago. She had a hard time using litter box for the first few days after moving as well and would pee in the bathroom in the tub (honestly, the best place for her to have an accident!). I would expect similar behavior when she comes into your family for the first week or so. It may take her a while to get used to you and to let you pet her. She loves looking out the window or sitting on the front porch on a leash. When the windows are open in the house, Houdi gets a burst of energy and enjoys running around the house and playing with cat toys. She is NOT a lap cat. She likes to be left alone most of the time but enjoys the occasional cuddle. She really likes to play by chasing string/ribbon or a laser pointer. I have all the paper work from her adoption and doctor appointments. Houdi is NOT declawed and I will not give her to a home that wants her to be declawed. Houdiwatbon will come with her cat tree (if it is wanted), nail clippers, brush and litter box.
