Type: Tiger Short Hair Domestic
Indoor/Outdoor: Strictly INDOORS
Gets along with Dogs: Unknown, would suggest NO dogs.
Gets along with Cats: During our time with Tyson, he has been with 5 other cats and several others visiting at his screen door. We have not noticed any aggression, hissing or swatting towards them. Tyson typically walks away when he does not want to be bothered or touched. Tyson had a rough life and was found on a construction site. It is OUR opinion, that he was not handled well by people or other cats initially. Since he has been with us, he has been great and has not attempted any biting or scratching at all.
Overall Temperament: Tyson overall is a "Great Cat" !! Loves to be talked to, We pet him on his head and body when "HE" seems to want that, otherwise if he is not in the mood he walks away. I personally (Paul) am able to head to head rubs with him and give him kisses. Over TIME, where he can feel like he IS NOT going to have to MOVE AGAIN, it is our opinion he will develop even a more lovable demeanor and We feel he would make a GREAT CAT for a companion. Probably NOT a lap kitty, but you never know. We feel he would be best in a calm, quiet household which will aid in his continued progress we have made with him.
Of course with any cats, ours in particular, there will need to be a transitional time for them to adjust to a brand new environment (your home/family). Lots of patience, LOVE, Care and Understanding needs to be given to them in order for them to EARN TRUST with their new family over time. The CATS we accept from Rescues that we have Partnered with, typically have had a Very Hard/Rough/Abusive life up to the point of their capture. WE, at Catify, work with these cats for at least 30-90 days to earn their trust and show them the love they need !!
