But being affectionate wasn’t the main problem; the issue was how Percy displayed his love. Both his previous owners couldn’t cope with his enthusiasm. Percy was returned each time, and as a result, he was in need of a consistent home.

In case you were wondering where Percy went wrong: it’s because of his love nips. Percy is an energetic and loving cat, who enjoys playtime. In fact, he enjoys it so much that he gets overly excited and tends to nibble his playmates.

Although it isn’t an aggressive act, Percy’s previous owners didn’t appreciate the love bites. It might seem like strange behavior, but love nips are natural for a cat. However, presumably Percy’s enthusiasm made his nibbles too much for his adopters to bear.
