Tiger and his housemate, Simba, were brought to a shelter by folks who said they found them stray. Somehow, the shelter learned that they were 5 and 10 years old, named Tiger and Simba, and devoted to each other. I was notified about Tiger and agreed to take him in. Only later did I hear about Simba. OK, I said, and took them both into foster.
I am so glad I did. What a great pair of cats they are!! Here’s Tiger, of the beautiful luminous green eyes. He is a rather big boy with big feet and lots of muscle. Scottish Folds have three possible types of ears. Some are born straight-eared, some have partly folded ears, and some, like Tiger, have “Airplane Fold” ears which means the ears go out horizontal to the ground like an airplane’s wings, or they even point lower as Tiger’s do. In Folds, it is thought the lower, the better. The fact that the ears are folded does not create hearing problems or significant cleaning issues for the cat.
Tiger is a wonderful cat. He is playful and curious, a little macho compared to utter love bug Simba. He is good-natured and easy going. He likes attention and he likes exploring and he likes rolling around on his back being silly. He does not like to be held off the ground and wiggles if you put him on a shoulder. He is very companionable with his friend Simba. (partners in crime) These two boys MUST be adopted together. They lost their home and their family but will not lose each other.
I have a feeling these two were family cats named by children. I think they would be good again with children, maybe five years old and up. Since Simba is a tripod (a three-legged) cat, I would not suggest he be adopted by a family with a dog unless it was a seriously gentle, unthreatening dog. These two cats are well trained to be inside-only house cats who offer companionship and entertainment for their humans. An adult-only family would be fine, also. They may be all right with a home with a gentle kitty. I just don’t want anyone, two footed or four footed, chasing or scaring Simba.
Tiger eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
