Denisha has never been around children or other animals nor has she ever bitten/scratched a person or animal. Behavior: During car rides Denisha will meow/cry at times or is quiet. Denisha has been given a bath and had her nails trimmed at a groomers where the owner hasn’t gotten any reports (good or bad) on Denisha’s behavior during. She doesn’t like being brushed or put into a carrier; she’ll growl, hiss and or run away. Denisha only likes to be picked up/held on her terms when she comes to you for affection, she’ll seek it otherwise she’ll run away. Denisha hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Denisha is described as very protective of herself, independent, will come to you for affection/attention & is friendly/affectionate with a medium-very high activity level. Denisha’s favorite thing to do is running around. She’ll follow the owner around sometimes. Denisha enjoys mouse/stuffed toys. She’s an indoor cat mostly who sleeps in a carriage or with the owner. Denisha eats both dry & wet Purina Cat Chow food 1-2x a day. She’s litter box trained, her litter box is hooded with crystals litter within. Denisha doesn’t have a scratching post and the owner hasn’t noticed if she scratches on items in/around the home. Intake Behavior: Denisha began to growl as I approached her/her carrier. I was able to scan her (-) and as I attempted to pick her up she growled louder, hissed & attempted to swat. She ran into the kennel on her own, attempted to hide in her litter box while remaining with a low body posture and following our every move. During her stay with us at the BXAC, Denisha “went” (#2) outside of her litter box.
