BOOTS – A1045204
GONE 08/07/15- Meet Boots: According to Boots’ previous owner, she is a friendly and playful cat, and although she is a senior gal, she has a high level of activity. Unfortunately this pretty lady is a bit uncomfortable in her shelter surroundings. We feel that Boots would do her best in a home with experienced cat parents where she can take her time to acclimate to her new surrounding and hopefully bring that playful, happy-go-lucky side of herself back out!

Reaction to assessor: Boots was calm and relaxed upon approach. She slowly comes to the front, attempts to sniff the assessor, and lip licks when softly spoken to.
Reaction to cage door opening: Boots remains soft and relaxed.

The owner describes Boots as friendly and playful cat with a very high activity level. In the last few months, Boots has been having daily accidents outside of her litter box. She has seen a vet two years ago for this problem and they stated that it is due to an inflammation.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Boots tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
Boots r is a 10 yr. old female domestic short hair mix. The owner surrendered Boots because of personal problems. Boots vomits and has inflammation which causes her to use the bathroom outside the litter box; the owner has not taken her to a vet in two years.
The owner states that around strangers Boots is friendly and outgoing. Boots has not been around children but around adults she is gentle and loves to be play. Boots has never been around other animals so the owner has no idea how Boots would react around them. Boots has never bitten or scratched anyone.
Boots has never been bathed, picked and held and had her nails trimmed. She does not mind having her coat brushed and allows being placed in a cat carrier. As of the last few months Boots has accidents (both peeing and pooping) outside of the litter box daily. She was last seen two years ago by a vet for this problem and the stated that it is due to inflammation (not specified).
