RANDOLPH – A0755185
*SAFE * 05/12/15- VOLUNTEER WRITES:
A Staff Member Writes: Randolph the great they call him. Legends of his heroic deeds and tales bounce through the halls of our Manhattan Care Center. This handsome older fella is wise beyond his 9 years. He stands tall and regally watches the cat room like a king on his throne. He was surrendered by his previous owner for conquering their furniture; however, he’s just looking for a special scratching post to call his very own.
A volunteer writes: Randolph is a handsome boy – mostly white, with two black gray spots on his head, and on his back, and big yellow eyes. He is loving and affectionate, ready for attention and some petting! He will make a great companion to a loving family!

Randolf lived with small and medium sized dogs in the past. He was friendly and affectionate with them and they played together occasionally. Also, Randy’s former family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, talkative, and medium activity. He was surrendered because he scratches their couch, but they didn’t have the time to try to modify his behavior. We recommend that this cat go to a home with an average cat parents.

Randy’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, talkative, and medium activity. He loves attention, follows his family around, and sits in their laps. He also likes to spend time on his owner’s bed looking out the window. He likes to play with balls, catnip toys, and stuffed toys and plays gently with people.
Randolf lived inside and slept on rugs. He ate dry food and wet chunky food. He used uncovered and hooded litterboxes with clumping litter.
Randy is littertrained and doesn’t have accidents.
Randy scratches the leather couch and cardboard boxes. He had vertical and horizontal scratching posts and didn’t use them. He tolerates being brushed and put in a carrier but doesn’t enjoy it. He doesn’t mind being woken up. He cries in the car.
Randy had a relaxed body and walked and looked around on the counter during handling-scan (negative), collar, petting, pictures, taking in and out of carrier. Whenever I opened his carrier, he tried to walk out but allowed me to move him back in. He was easy to handle and didn’t resist, retreat, or vocalize.
