Cremo is a 6 year old male neutered brown tabby domestic shorthair cat who is being surrendered because the owner can no longer take care of him. Cremo has been with the family for 6 years.
Cremo lived with 3 adults and is also exposed to children. He is tolerant of small children but if they play rough he may hiss and disengage. Cremo is described as independent but will ask for petting on contact when he approaches on his own. Cremo is an indoor cat who has not been exposed to dogs. Cremo uses a covered litter box with clumping litter. When visitors come to the home Cremo is cautious but will emerge when he feels ready.
Cremo will struggle for a bath and a nail trim. Cremo allows brushing but may loose patience for this. Cremo allows himself to be picked up and enjoys drinking trickling water from the tap in the tub. Cremo can easily be placed in the carrier and was mostly quiet for riding in a car.
Cremo does not have toys but enjoys playing swat and chase with objects. Cremo does not have a scratching post so he will scratch the couch and also the sheet rock wall. When the family is home he likes to be in his own place and when home alone he is well behaved. Cremo likes dry food.
Upon intake Cremo was very shy for introduction. Cremo was loose but very still for handling. Counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative) collar and photograph. Cremo allowed contact and petting but did not seek it. Cremo made no attempts to flee but when presented a carrier he entered on his own.

When spoken quietly: Cremo does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed
Reaction to door cage opening: Cremo remains motionless
Reaction to touch: Cremo allowed a very brief interaction before raising his paw and swatting. He will also begin to hiss and swat again with nails if continued to attempt to pet him.
Try picking cat up: Cremo is not tolerant of this type of handling.
Behavior Determination: Experience No Child
At the time of the assessment Cremo was displaying nervous behavior. He does not seek attention from the assessor. He remains motionless as I started to get closer. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a very limited way before he hissed and swatted. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children.
