Tiggs’ Housemates: Cory and Co

For those who don’t know my resident cats, I thought you might like a look; for those who do, I thought you might like new pics of them. Angel, the only female, foster-mom extraordinaire to orphaned babycats Trick-or-Treat, the resident clown and massage-therapist Cory, aka Cory-Bear, who understands nothing but love and friendship and playing Original post blogged on b2evolution.

In the Living Room

We’re bringing Tiggs into the living room in the evening, to relax on the couch between us for two or three hours. She’s putting up with having a harness and leash on, just-in-case, and hardly seems to notice it. She’s getting more tolerant of the boys, but seems to have an issue with Angel — female territoriality, I suspect, which I hope will fade once she’s spayed. She seems to very much enjoy being curled up in a fuzzy-blanket-nest with the two of us intermittently petting her. Angel sleeps in a chair in easy sight about four feet away, but…

Stretching

Well, I do have a short video of Tiggs showing off her flexibility — she loves to stretch, and a few times I’ve seen some downright amazing stretches! Also, she’s been here for a week tomorrow evening, and in that time, she’s grown much more tolerant during her meetings with our two neutered males. The pictures show her and Trick this afternoon; also, this afternoon, she allowed Cory to sniff her and walk by very close to her with only a token hiss at his tail as he passed. Last night we brought her into the living room and she…

Playful + Affectionate = Tiggs

Tiggs has definitely claimed her room as her own domain! She’s eating plenty, after a day or so of only nibbling, and loves her cozy nest. She’s getting better about tolerating Cory in her room while I’m there, maybe because he’s completely non-threatening and, while twice her size, not much older. She warns him, he looks at her in confusion, and flops where he is. I’m hoping that in time she’ll learn that other cats are not necessarily a threat to her. She’s not “aggressive” in a common sense, she can be easily distracted from a warning by dragging a…

Tiggs’ Nest

Last night, we set up a radio, with the volume on low, in Tiggs’ room. I made her a sleepy-spot on the bed underneath a reading lamp with a 60-watt bulb in it, something one of my cats with similar short fine fur (now across the Rainbow Bridge) used to love, and she took to her artificial sunbeam immediately! I found her snuggled into it this morning. She gets up to eat, play, soak up sun on the windowsill, but goes right back to that nest, even when I turned the lamp off through the day when the sun was…

Tiggs and the Catnip

Earlier this afternoon, we decided to give Tiggs some catnip — sprinkled on a tray for her to eat or roll in as she chose, and we gave her the green and yellow pompom that came in the catnip. She had lots of fun!!! For the rest of the pictures from this, look in this directory. Original post blogged on b2evolution.

Say Hi to Tiggs!

After a long hiatus, it looks like I’m back to fostering again — now for the new, no-kill, all-volunteer Kingston Animal Rescue. Tiggs is a really sweet tabby girl with beautiful orange highlights. She turned up as a stray and a compassionate person was feeding her and letting her come inside. Then in July Tiggs had a litter of five kittens! (I’ve seen the pics, they are too adorable!) This wonderful person took good care of her, found homes for the kittens, and contacted KAR because the Humane Society said she’d very likely be euthanized if she was taken there,…
