Tigra

Tigra is an approximately 2 year old small domestic long hair.  She was dropped off in a box with a kitten outside Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance, and after being spayed and vaccinated came to us. Tigra was unsocialized at the time, so she is ear tipped–this indicates that an outdoor or feral cat has been altered so they are not brought in repeatedly in a TNR program.

Tigra, however, is not feral, and she is not even an outdoor cat.  She failed out of our barn cat program.  She hates the outdoors, and does not want to be a working cat.  Her favorite thing to do is cuddle and sleep.  When she was in the barn she would protest if she did not have a lap to sit on, but most times she would be on the patio to the house asking to come in.  In December she transitioned from outdoors to fully indoors and she has never looked back.  Tigra does not want to return to the outdoors at all, and she is seeking a permanent indoor home.

Tigra is a small cat, litter box trained, and good with dogs that do not chase.  She shares the home with a Golden Retriever and another cat.  The other cat is cat aggressive, so Tigra is not often able to have free range of the house as she is at risk of being attacked by the resident house cat.  She tries to live peacefully, but when provoked she will respond to defend herself.  She has limited exposure to young children, but has never acted badly around children.  She loves to be pet, and she enjoys being picked up and carried.  She is somewhat wary of strangers, but she forms a bond quickly.  She loves tummy rubs.  Tigra does not have an adoption fee, but we will ask any interested adopter to be willing to provide her an indoor home and provide a vet reference so we know she will be well cared for.  Her adoption contract will include a return to rescue clause, so if for any reason she cannot stay with her adoptive home forever she must return to Safe Harbor.
