The owner described him as shy, mellow, friendly, talkative, and independent. Tigger is not bothered when bathed, having is his nails trimmed, when put in a carrier, or disturbed from sleep. He struggles when brushed and held.
Reaction to Assessor: Tigger was calm and relaxed upon approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Tigger becomes stiff and alert, looking up at the assessor and then averting her gaze.
Reaction to cage door opening: Tigger remains motionless.
Reaction to touch: Tigger was a bit hesitant and shifts away slightly, but he allows the assessor to pet him on his head and back. He lowers his head and warms up a little, but he seems wary of the environment.
Reaction to being picked up: Tigger is a bit tense (possibly due to girth), but allows handling.
Placement Determination: Experience
Tigger tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
