TIGER – A1045690
***GONE 08/01/15*** TERRIFIC TIGER WAS DUMPED WITH 3 OTHER HOUSEMATES AFTER OWNERS DOCTOR TOLD HER TO GET RID OF THEM BECAUSE SHE WAS HAVING A BABY!! WHAT!!!! Since when are babies and cats not able to live in the same home? We thought old wive’s tales were long gone and here is a doctor scaring someone into dumping their cats. TIGER is 7 years old and had lived with his owner since she found her as a stray kitten. Tiger was good with the other cats and liked to follow her owner around the house. She also would play gently and was said to be playful, friendly, talkative, and an all around great cat. Obviously this 7 year track record wasn’t enough to overtake some doctor’s opinion. GIVE TIGER A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT – HE IS A GREAT CAT AND DESERVES TO HAVE A FUREVER HOME.

She was surrendered because her previous owner is having a new baby and was told by her doctor that she shouldn’t have cats. She got Tiger as a stray when she was a kitten and has had her for 7 years. The two things she liked most about Tiger were’ she’s quiet and a great lap cat.

Sox’s is litter box trained and lived mostly indoors. Her activity level is low and she can be described as playful, confident, mellow, friendly, talkative, affectionate and independent. Behavior Issues: When given a bath Tiger is afraid and struggles. When she gets her nails trimmed she isnt bothered. She isn’t bothered when her coat is brushed and enjoys being held.

She scratched on a vertical scratching post that was made of rough rope. When her previous owner was home Tiger would tend to follow her around and be in the same room. When she played she was gentle.She enjoys car rides. She eats wet and dry Purina cat food. Behavior During Intake: Tiger was very quiet. He allowed me to pet him and hold him for a little while but would rather be in his crate. He went in and out of his crate easily and showed no signs of aggression.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiger’s former owner stated around children she is respectful, but doesn’t play. Around other cats she is very tolerant. Around dogs she is defensive. Her activity level is low and she can be described as playful, confident, mellow, friendly, talkative, affectionate and independent. Reaction to assessor: Tiger looks tense in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Tiger remains crouched down at the back of her cage, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Tiger accepts the stroke, but quickly turns towards the touch and hard stares at the assessor’s hand with ears down to her side. Placement determination: Experience / no child Tiger tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
