Rachel says: Tigra is one of the most adorable and quirky foster kittens we have ever had. She is a true lover and is not afraid to show it. When she is feeling in a real loving mood she will come up and rub her cheek to your cheek, purring as loud as she can, showing every bit of affection she can. She is also feisty and playful, but when she sleeps, she sleeps hard. She loves to be against a person when she sleeps, or on a back, lap, shoulder or chest -- any of them will do. And she has a huge purr and she uses it generously.

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.

Oh, what a sweet little girl! I've fallen so hard for both Tirga and Bunny, I hope they will be able to stay together. I'm guessing Buttercup will arrive in my inbox tomorrow. :-)

It was hard to pick a favorite, but Tigra looks so sweet asleep! I love Rachel's descriptions of these kittens - she really brings to to life for us! I hope Tigra soon finds her furever home.

Tigra sounds like the perfect kitty companion for my toddler daughter, who will be needing her own kitty soon. I wish I lived closer.

CareAboutCats, she needed a bath because most of our foster kittens, including these ones, were found on the street and have grim and oil deep in their fur. For the first week I just wipe them down with kitty wipes to get the surface grim and to build trust and a relationship. Then I give them a bath and oh my goodness the difference it makes in their fur. They feel so good. They like it better too. They are much better about grooming themselves after their bath. Plus it makes for adorable/pathetic photographs! :)

Tigra is all tired out from playing hard here. She is a real beauty and I hope that she and her siblings get a furever home real soon. Thanks for fostering her.
