ITTY BITTY – A1101215
Safe - 1-30-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Animalkind Please honor your pledges: http://animalkindny.org/makeadonation/
Owner is moving across the country at the end of January to a home that doesn’t allow pets, so she can no longer keep her pair of senior brown tabby cats, Itty Bitty and Tiggs.
The cute pair are 9.5 year old male DSH cats. Their owner got them from bodegas as kittens. They haven’t seen a vet but are apparently healthy, social and tolerant cats, though Itty Bitty has occasional hairballs.
The pair don’t spend a lot of time together, but Itty Bitty is outgoing, while Tiggs is shy at first but super cuddly with people once he warms up!

FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
The cats’ family describes them as friendly, playful, affectionate, and medium energy. Itty Bitty is quiet while Tigs is a little talkative. Itty Bitty spends most of his time following an adult woman. Tigs spends most of his time following the teenage girl in the home. Both love cuddling with their favorite family member. Itty Bitty cuddles on his owner’s shoulders and purrs super loudly. The cats played with stuffed toys, wand toys, string, and balls with bells. They lived inside. Itty Bitty slept close to his owner, cuddled behind her knees. Tigs slept in a cat bed. They ate dry Alley Cat food and Temptations hairball control treats. The cats are littertrained, used uncovered and covered litterboxes with clumping litter, and don’t have accidents. They don’t scratch anything.
