Sheridan was very leery and shy when she came to her foster home but has become very sweet and friendly. She enjoys meeting visitors and likes to be petted. She is a super-sized girl so is not a lap cat and dislikes being picked up. She likes to lie on the bed with her foster mom at night.
She loves playing with fishing rod toys, foil balls, and other balls that are thrown so she can chase them. She will play by herself with a foil ball or a string hanging from a chair.
Sheridan dislikes being groomed: she may snarl or spit, but is not vicious. When she first arrived at her foster home, she did not groom herself, but now she's back in the habit. It would be helpful to have her claws trimmed regularly at the vet's or a groomer's. Sheridan may have been abused or treated roughly in past--she doesn't enjoy being touched on the top of her head, the base of her tail, or her toes. But she loves being stroked under her chin and enjoys belly pats.
Sheridan has become more comfortable, playful, and relaxed. She loves sitting on a chair where she can look out the window, but seems reluctant to get up on anything that is not perfectly stable. She uses a scratching post regularly but won't get up on the cat trees, possibly because of her weight. Sheridan will be a very loving pet to the right family.
