Please take note:
Zipper’s former owner stated he never lived with kids, but a Godson of the family would come to the home, and he was usually respectful and fearful of him. He plays gentle with them. He is exuberant of the cats he lives with, but can get somewhat rough with them. Zipper is best described as playful, confident, friendly, talkative, affectionate and independent. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for scratching furniture should this behavior continue in a home environment.
Reaction to assessor: Zipper immediately comes soliciting at the front of the cage.
Reaction to door opening: Zipper remains at the front of the cage, soft and relaxed, soliciting attention.
Reaction to touch: Zipper rubs on the assessor’s hand, purrs, and appreciates petting on the head and body.
Reaction to Being Picked up: Allows the pickup and remains calm.
Placement determination: Beginner
Zipper interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting.
This cat can go to a beginner home.
