Scottie was abandoned at a vet’s office by his owner. He’s a very laid back cat, likes to sit up high on cabinets and survey his surroundings in the lobby of the vet’s office greeting patients and furry friends arriving for appointments. He also prefers to sleep in his own bed all curled up. He is not high energy but would like a lap or couch to sit on. He has long fur so will need regular grooming. Scottie seems to get along with everyone and is not scared of noises or people. His ears are crimped so it looks like a “Scottish Fold.” Due to a severe ear infection one ear will stay more crimped up than the other. He does not seem to mind that his ears aren’t long and pointy. He likes toys and will play, which will help him to be more active. He has been around other cats and dogs.
