As per the previous owner, Molly has been around children ages four and seven. She is relaxed and affectionate around them, but wasn’t very playful. When they became too active our loud she would run away and hide but when they were calm and relaxed, she would approach and nuzzle them to be pet. She has been around another cat and they would swat and attempt to swat, but she was respectful and gave the other cat their own space. She is litter box trained, kept indoors only, and has a high level of energy. She was described as confident, friendly, and talkative. She enjoys being bathed and will jump into a running shower whenever she can.
Reaction to assessor: Molly meows and was calm, relaxed, and friendly.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Molly comes to the front and head-butts the cage door to solicit attention.
Reaction to cage door opening: Molly remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Molly head-butts, leans on the assessor’s hand, and begins to purr. She whines when the assessor stops petting her and she continues to solicit attention.

Molly is a 5 year old spayed cat who has no prior injuries or medical problems. She was gotten as a gift but was surrendered to the shelter due to a conflict with her current cat.
Social Life and Personality:
According to the owner she has been around children ages 7 and 4 and was relaxed and affectionate but did not like to play with them. When they became too active our loud she would run away and hide but when they were calm and relaxed she would approach and nuzzle them to be pet. She has not been around dogs before so her behaviors are unknown but when she was living with another cat he would attempt to swat and hiss at her. She was respectful and would allow the other cat to have their own space. She is litter box trained, kept indoors only, and has a high level of energy. She was described as confident, friendly, and talkative.
She has not bitten or scratched anyone before. She enjoys being bathed and will jump into a running shower whenever she can. She was not bothered when her nails were clipped but has never been brushed before. She is not bothered when picked up but if held for more than a minute she will struggle to get away and then approach to sit next to you and be pet.
New Family Info:
She is used to clay litter inside an uncovered box. She will not play with toys and would scratch on the couch but was never given an alternative to use. At home she followed the owner from room to room and when played with was gentle but did not really play, only looked for affection. She was fed both wet and dry food on a free feeding schedule.
During intake allowed all handling without aggression. When outside the carrier would attempt to flee but when stopped had soft, relaxed body. Inside the carrier she was very vocal and when given food was not interested in eating. When she was scanned for a microchip she was negative.
