**SAFE 10/27/15** OREO is a neutered, lovely boy who was surrendered to the ACC by a former owner who wove quite a tale during the handoff process—-you’ll have to read it in his shelter notes. Long story short, Oreo is “smart and active,” he has shown himself to be good around kids, tolerant of dogs, but he’s not much for being picked up and cuddled. This young, active guy probably wants to jet from one fun activity to another, charming his people and living life to the fullest! He will never be able to do those things again, if the ACC kill him tomorrow, which is why it is VITAL that a FOSTER or ADOPTER be found for him, tonight!

Owner stated that she had a Cat at home that had a litter of kittens and she decided to keep three. The mother cat recently got into an accident, getting her leg caught in a fence and fracturing it. Owner stated that her surgery was very costly so they decided they had to give some of the cats up to lift some of the financial burden and to make the cat at home more comfortable. Oreo has no known health problems and his last vet visit was in May of 2015 when he was neutered. However, he will undergo a complete medical examination. Owner’s two favorite things about Oreo are that he’s active and smart. Social Life & Personality Oreo is relaxed, playful and respectful with children.

Behavior Issues Owner stated that Oreo does not display any behavior issues. He isn’t bothered with having his nails trimmed or being disturbed while sleeping. He does not enjoy being picked up and held nor does he enjoy baths, becoming very vocal. Owner also stated that she struggled with putting him in the carrier. Upon intake, Oreo displayed signs of nervousness; his ears were turned completely outwards, he retreated to the back of the carrier and he hissed when handler attempted to collar him. His photo was taken inside the carrier and he was not handled. For a New Family to Know Oreo uses both a covered and uncovered litter box with clumping litter.
