Tiger is an 11 year old brown tabby that was adopted from the ACC around 10 years ago. The owner is surrendering her due to her grandson having allergies to the cats. He has no injuries or health problems that the owner is aware of.
According to the owner, Tiger has not been around strangers and they did not let Tiger near the baby so his behavior is unknown. Tiger plays gently with adults. He has not lived with cats or dogs so his behavior with them is unknown. He has not bitten a person or animal.
Tiger has no known behavioral or litterbox issues according to owners. During the car ride, Tiger cries for a bit and settles down. The owner reports that he is not bothered when given a bath and brushed out. She has not trimmed his nails. He enjoys being picked up and held.
Tiger is described as a baby who enjoys being held and craddled. He has a medium activity level and loves to run around and jump up on the window and watch.
