Social, Mellow, Loving
Tora means tiger in Japanese and Tora's gorgeous stripes may remind you of a majestic tiger. But, he is all teddy bear! This friendly boy is so snuggly and chill. He isn't one to get in your lap. But, he definitely wants to be where you are! He loves cuddling up next to you on the couch or bed or hanging out in the same room as you. He is the sweetest shadow who loves to relax and keep you company because you are his favorite!
Tora is so happy when you pet his soft coat, he especially enjoys belly rubs! His temperament is such a nice combination of affectionate and laid-back. If you take a nap he will curl up and take one with you. Go from room to room and he will softly follow behind you, settling down in your vicinity. He just loves to be around his person, but not in an annoying way. If you leave him home alone he is very well-behaved and content. But, he is always so glad to see you!
Tora enjoys playing with his fishing line toy, and occasionally will climb and explore. But, mostly he keeps it low-key and likes spending most of his time taking it easy and relaxing. He LOVES using his cardboard scratching post, add a little catnip and he is in heaven as he scratches away! The sink is one of his favorite watering holes. So, if you turn on the faucet don't be surprised if he jumps up to take a drink!
Tora had limited exposure to other cats at the shelter and he pretty much ignored them. He might tolerate another cat with a slow introduction.
Being a people-loving kitty, Tora's ideal home would include a person who is around most of the time. He would just love to spend his days leisurely hanging out by your side! But, he does just fine being left alone. He is such a sweetheart with so much love to give, and he is ready to share it right meow! Contact us to schedule a meet and greet with terrific Tora!
Tora has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives their adoption fees, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Tora can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine!
Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about Tora's care.
All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
