Tiger loves to chase a string, laser pointer, and catnip toys! He really enjoys looking out of the window or a door, but has no desire to go outside. We’re sure he remembers having to live out there as a stray and would never give up his life inside again. He can’t wait to sit on your lap, although it is hard for him to fit because he is so long. And you better be strong because even at his good weight of 22 pounds, he is a lot of kitty! He will keep you warm at night, whether it is to snuggle next to you or stay by your feet. He prefers to be nearby and is one of the smartest cats I know!! He doesn't forget anything and his reasoning is amazing. If you’re looking for a kitty that is very dog like, Tiger is your man!
Tiger gets along with other cats and has lived with children as young as 6 years old. Tiger has not been around dogs. He is timid when he hears a dog bark. However, he is very outgoing and may adjust well to a quiet dog.
Tiger’s age is estimated at about 10 years old. He is current on vet care and in good condition. After living outside for so long, he enjoyed the food bowls of his inside home a bit too much! If food is left out, Tiger will overeat. He’ll need to have feeding times rather than free access to food. He currently eats a grain free diet (Encore) to help control his weight.
Tiger has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. He lives with several cats and has had no issues with his disease and being around them. If you currently have other cats, living with Tiger should be fine as long as your cats are not aggressive. Due to his Feline Leukemia, Tiger should be an indoor cat only, which he prefers anyway.
