Tyson and his brother Holyfield were surrendered (a nice way of saying 'dumped') to Kitten Rescue in the summer of 2007 by someone who had found them but after a while decided she didn't want to keep them any more.
Tyson can be a little shy at first before he learns to trust new people. He is not what I would call an 'immediate gratification' cat. He is, though, a really sweet guy and once he is comfortable with you he is all purrs and cuddles.
Tyson is quite playful and loves to chase after a laser pointer or any sort of feather toy. He also likes wrestling with other kitties, particularly his brother Holyfield. When it's quiet time, he can invariably be found cuddled up with his brother or any other cat (or kitten) who will let him.
Tyson is a petite, beautiful panther-like guy with a soft, shiny black coat and soulful eyes. He's a great cat, and if you are willing to be patient with him, he'll make a wonderful addition to your home.

If you are unable to send an email to the foster parent through the link included above, please contact us and let us know what kitty you're interested in. You may also fill out our adoption questionnaire to speed up the screening process. Be sure to name the cat in the CAT PREFERENCE field at the beginning of the questionnaire.
