Just About Your Average Cat

By

United States

Posted Jun 10, 2015

I would typify my time with these cats as the "average cat experience." They tend to be a bit skittish, sometimes preferring to run and hide, and others to nuzzle up against you to be petted. They can decide to shred curtains and furniture seemingly on a whim, so make sure to catproof everything before bringing one home. They require very little care and are a fairly hands-off animal. Their temperament varies individual to individual, and this includes whether or not they will get along with other animal, such as dogs. They don't really have an exciting characteristics like more exotic breeds such as the Bengal or Savannah, and in general tend to blend in to the furniture when not receiving attention.
