Tigra is open with people and easily accepts anyone ready to love her. She has had limited exposure to young children and is incredibly tolerant. She would be great for a family with children. I strongly believe that children and pets go well together as long as the children are taught the right way to treat a pet. She is SO good with kids. My eight-mont- old niece is here often. She isn't crawling just yet but she loves to watch the kitten. Tigra settled down beside her, about arms length away and was watching my niece as well. My niece reached out to Tigra and Tigra decided to play "bat at each other" with my niece, the whole while being gentle and using "no claws," like she knew she needed to be calm. We kept close eye on them and my niece managed to turn on her back a bit and could reach Tigra, and as babies do she got a hold of Tigra's ear, holding it tight. Tigra just looked at us like "What is going on?" I quickly and gently removed my niece's hand from Tigra's ear. A lot of cats would have run away at this point, but not Tigra. She just gave me a "thank you" look and decided to take a bath right where she was. She may be fiesty and willing to tear all over the house in her kitten antics, but when it counts she is has the perfect disposition.
Tigra would love to be adopted with her sister Buttercup and/or brother Bunny, or another companion, but would be fine on her own. She would need some time to adjust to being a little lonely but would be fine. She has had exposure to adult cats and loves them very much but can be a bit excited and annoying to them at times. Overall Tigra is an incredibly happy, loving, sweet, and special kitten and will be an amazing addition to any home that will love her as vehemently as she will love them. If you have a home to give to Tigra, please contact the Humane Society of Silicon Valley.
