*Bonded with Rubie*

Sapphire’s foster family calls her Tigra! Tigra is a smart, athletic girl who’s super bonded to her mama, Rubie. They must be adopted together as a pair.   Rubie is part of the Mommy and Me  program and is available for $25 when adopted with Tigra.

Tigra’s a bit shy at first, but her curiosity wins over, and she wants to get to know you. She LOVES toys. All toys. Little plushies that she can carry around, catnip toys, string toys are big - and chasing ping pong balls. She likes playing with and grooming her mama, but she’s definitely a loving little girl who’s discovering what it’s like to be a lap cat! Once she trusts you, she runs up to greet you when you come in, and will gently approach you for pets and occasional snuggling. 

Tigra is a fastidious litter box user. She would likely need a lower traffic household due to shyness as she’s afraid of smaller kids who might make unexpected movements and have more energy.  Tigra is great with teenagers and adults once she’s comfortable. At this time, it is unknown how she’d do with dogs.

Tigra is a sweetheart and loves watching birds out the window with mama, Rubie.
