About This Cat

Adopted by Jill & Allen

Born ~ 2012, Male, Silver/Black Tabby Scottish Fold

November Update: Tiger and Simba are such wonderful kitties .They really want to help you do your chores around the house. Simba lay all over the carpet we were trying to put down making the whole process great fun rather than work. He was insistent and so happy and goofy.  Lounging, rolling side to side.  Tiger was excited by a pile of boxes and other stuff on the floor he had mess with all of it. Running for my camera I missed the best photos of him climbing in all the boxes, making us laugh. Then he stood on his hind legs sweetly asking for pets. Tiger loves catnip and is tireless in searching it out.

These two kitty housemates are very interactive cats. They want to be closely involved with their humans, making eye and body contact. They are perfect family cats. Everyone just loves them. They are ready to go to their new home and take up their jobs again of entertaining and loving and comforting their humans. Some family will be so lucky to have their company. These gentle well behaved cats would also be great with gentle children.

Original Post: Tiger and his housemate, Simba, were brought to a shelter by folks who said they found them stray. Somehow the shelter learned that they were 5 and 10 years old, named Tiger and Simba, and devoted to each other. I was notified about Tiger and agreed to take him in. Only later did I hear about Simba. OK, I said, and took them both into foster.

I am so glad did. What a great pair of cats they are!!   Here’s Tiger, of the beautiful luminous green eyes. He is a rather big boy with big feet and lots of muscle.  Scottish Folds have three possible types of ears. Some are born straight eared, some have partly folded ears and some like Tiger have “Airplane Fold” ears which means the ears go out horizontal to the ground like an airplane’s wings, or they even point lower as Tiger’s do. In Folds it is thought the lower the better. The fact that the ears are folded does not create hearing problems or significant cleaning issues for the cat.

Tiger is a wonderful cat. He is playful and curious, a little macho compared to utter love bug Simba.  He is good-natured and easy going. He likes attention and he likes exploring and he likes rolling around on his back being silly.  He does not like to be held off the ground and wiggles if you put him on a shoulder. He is very companionable with his friend Simba. (partners in crime) These two boys MUST be adopted together. They lost their home and their family but will not lose each other.

I have a feeling these two were family cats named by children. I think they would be good again with children, maybe five years old and up. Since Simba is a tripod (three legged) cat, I would not suggest he be adopted by a family with a dog unless it was a seriously gentle, unthreatening dog. These two cats are well trained to be inside only house cats who offer companionship and entertainment for their humans. An adult only family would be fine also. They may be alright with a home with a gentle kitty. I just don’t want anyone two footed or four footed chasing or scaring Simba.

Tiger eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
