About Tigger (and Gracie)
Born ~2010, M, Mackerel Striped Grey Tabby
Adoption Fee: $150 for the pair
Tigger and Gracie MUST be adopted together. There are NO exceptions. See Gracie here.
Tigger is a healthy and young 13-year-old Mackerel Striped Grey Tabby boy. He lived with an elderly lady all his life with 5 other female cats. When his previous owner had to move in with her family for health reasons, she wasn’t allowed to take all her cats with her. She had to make a heartbreaking decision to give up Tigger and one of the female cats, Gracie. Tigger was sad and confused when Purebreds Plus took him in. He missed his mom and moped for a while. Eventually, he warmed up to his foster mom and now he wants to be with her everywhere she goes. He is sweet, gentle and affectionate. He is always happy to see his foster mom and comes running when she calls his name. He is playful and likes to chase a fishing wand toy and can jump high in the air to catch it.
He is sensitive to loud noises or sudden movements and shy with strangers as he has spent his whole life in a quiet home with few visitors. He was even afraid of the TV as he had never seen one before. Once he starts to trust you and knows he is safe with you, he’ll be a loyal companion. He loves to be petted and brushed. Although he is okay with being held, he’d rather sit on your lap and be brushed and petted.
Tigger came to the rescue with gum infection and bad teeth. We took him to the vet and got 7 teeth extracted and now he is happy with no pain. He is in good health and will have many more years to enjoy life.
Tigger and Gracie are a bonded pair, and they need to be adopted together. They take comfort in each other’s company. When Gracie doesn’t know where Tigger is and cries for him, Tigger will come running to assure her.
Tigger and Gracie will thrive in a quiet home. They are not good with children or dogs. They are good with non-territorial cats. They need someone who is patient and understands shy cats to bring out their best.
Tigger is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He currently lives with his foster family in MARTINEZ.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
