Dawson is one our OutCAsTS. He will never make a PetSmart debute. He will need a loving, very patient individual to work with him through his quirks while he learns to trust you. He is very smart and can read you like a book. No fooling this guy!
Dawson had a rough start in life but has come a long way. His cauliflower ear is likely the result of an untreated hematoma that burst at some point. We think it adds to the overall thug look he wears like a boss!!!
Dawson is one neck scratch loving, booty scratch loving individual. Just listen to him purr on his video. Don't let his thug glare scare you off, he is nothing but a ball of purring, drooling fluff behind that mask! He doesn't have many teeth left so you frequently see him with his tongue hanging out of his mouth. He drools when you pet him but he thinks it ruins his street cred so we ignore it. ;)
Since Dawson only has a few teeth it's practically impossible to know exactly how old he is. However, he has a brightness to his eyes that make us think he is definitely not a senior.
Dawson is okay around dogs and kids but has randomly displayed very agressive behavior towards other cats of both sexes. He tends to be very dominant and his tolerance threshold for other cats is minute. Some cats he showed no interest in - others he wanted to eliminate. Dawson is a thug and apologizes to no one - haters gonna hate - that's how he looks at it. : /
So, if you want a lap cat that will spend lots of time with you, you are reading the wrong bio. If you want a straight thug cat that will terrify your kids friends when they come over with just a glare, you have just met your perfect cat!
