My name is Amber and I’m a beautiful golden tone tiger kitty. I was born in Hartford to a feral mother cat. When I came to my foster-home, I was very scared and nervous as I was not used to humans. My foster-family was very patient with me and helped me to understand humans only want to love me. My foster-family are amazed by my transition from a shy girl to a wild/fun gal.
I’m easy going, relaxed and all about having fun. I’m a girl on the move. I love running through the house and playing with little toys or anything I can find on the floor. I have great fun playing with my siblings and other foster kittens in the home. My favorite activity is bird/chipmunk watching from the ‘cat tree.’ I can barely contain my excitement when I see the squirrels; I shake my whole body and flatten my ears. A cat tree would be a must in my new home as it’s also my favorite sleeping spot.
I’m super sweet but a touch sassy. I love kisses and scratches on my chin but when I’ve enough, I may let you know with a gentle swat. Sometimes, it actually a sign I want more attention. I have a great motor which I turn on for body rubs/scratches.
To help me come out of my shell, my foster-father bribed me with deli turkey/chicken; now I can’t get enough of it and think every time the refrigerator opens, it’s treat time. I eat treats from my foster-father’s hand as he pets/scratches me or sit on the counter stool to ‘grab’ (no claws) them from his hands. I’m also known to ‘accidentally knock’ things off the counter as I sit on the stool.
I get along great with other cat. My foster-family babysat their cousin’s Sheltie; she was okay and kinda grew on me. I would probably do well in a home with school aged or older children.
