Poor Poseidon found himself living in a cage at the shelter in mid-November. He has now seen the vet, and though he's vet-estimated to be 5 to 7 years old, he really has the personality of a sweet old soul. He prefers to lounge and nap, when he's not being cuddled by his volunteer friends. He is fond of a nice warm lap, too! He behaves well with the other cats, but doesn't really mingle with them too much. He just strolls around a bit when let out of his cage, and then hops up on the comfy chair to stretch, roll around, and nap. Though he is very sweet with all he meets, he would probably do better in a home children who don't expect a highly active cat to play with, but rather one who will just soak up their love. Poseidon tested very well with the shelter's dogs -- he showed absolutely no fear or stress with them, just threw a little hiss their way to let them know he would defend himself if need be, but was also very content to just sit there with the dogs he met. So as long as your dog is accustomed to living with cats, Poseidon should be fine living with a dog.
