Despite her age, Tibby is a playful soul and loves to play with her mouse toys or and running with the zoomies. Likes to sit on laps during the evening, but rarely settles completely, though her previous owner said she was very much a propper lap cat, so we hope in time, when completely bonded with a new owner, she will be the perfect lap cat. Shes quite low maintenance, but she is definitely an “open door” cat, and will sit outside a closed door meowing till its opened. She a gal who knows what she wants and isn’t shy about letting you know about it either (who can blame her?). She can nip you when she is particularly annoyed or overwhelmed and can also gently bop us with her paw but never in an aggressive way. This is mainly just an overstimulation response, and she very quickly shows affection afterwards. Tibby took her time to show any interest in using the garden whilst being in foster care, but she has now decided that its great fun and has been enjoying the fresh air. Though, she has also shown quite a disliking to any other cat she sees, so a low cat populated area would suit her best. She may suit an enclosed garden with restricted access, please enquire
Tibby has had some mild tartar removed from her teeth. Tibby could be left for a full working day, but it would be ideal for her to have a caflap unless you were about more during the day. She could live with sensible teenagers as long as they have prior experience with temperamental cats (nipping/batting behaviours). Though she would thrive best in a home with maximum of three people in the home
Tibby is a character who has gradually settled into our home and is displaying more and more affection. She wants that affection on her own terms and is very quick to tell you when she wants to be left alone. She is very warm and loving and will sit on your lap and purr away but carries an attitude that can frustrate you but that so makes her very endearing.
