Dr. Tiny Cat is her own woman. (She did spend all those months in med school).
She has an addiction to cat nip from her early days of studying and snorting to stay awake. She’s been in and out of rehab for that. Dr. Cat is front declawed, does not like to be picked up, and certainly does not like to have her belly touched. She has an aversion to brushing, but finds she is most empathetic when people are in the bathroom. She likes to comfort those having a particularly rough go of it on the toilet, and is always there to reach out with a loving paw. She often forgets herself around shoes. Especially men’s shoes, and rubs her body on them without shame, (as well as their feet). We can only assume this is from years of putting her career first and never opening herself, truly, to love. Her intimate relationships consist of being scratched on the back of the neck, just above the tail, under the chin, and in the wee hours of the morning, she will paw at the covers around your head. Simply lift the covers, guide her under, and she will use it as a cuddle fort for about 5 minutes. She might lick any exposed skin, but mostly she’ll lay on your chest, eyes wide, enjoying her “fort time”. After a couple minutes, she’ll leave. It’s best not to fight it. The experience will go faster if you let her play under the covers. Dr. Tiny Cat ADORES being up high! If you have shelves, or a cat tree, or anything high up she can use that’s comfy for a kitty, that’s great!! She LOVES electric water fountains for drinking water, (and other moving water), crinkly toys or Christmas bows, (laced with cat nip). If she REALLY likes you, you may find these by your head, in your clothes, or at the door. They are gifts for you! They are her “kills” and she is presenting you with a gift!
The good doctor is COMPLETELY LITTER TRAINED, and will somewhat tolerate other cats, but really doesn’t bond with other animals. She’s only been around one dog, a Boxer, and she had a VERY intimidating effect on him, sending him running to his owner.
(Dr. Tiny Cat eats Diamond Cat Food, but has used Blue Buffalo in the past. Litter is Arm and Hammer Clump and Seal)
