Tiger has been with me for 6 weeks now, I have had to dismantle the cage to see if it helps Tom, and it has unsettled her. But, to my amazement, she has got better, despite sitting in odd places in my front room. The other night, she was rubbing against my legs, actively coming up and butting my hand, she played with me, she ate treats off my hand, and I even got a quick brush. Her owner said that he couldn't stroke or brush her, I can do both, but you only get a couple of seconds at a time - but she has numerous 2 second strokes a day, and I do try and pick her up once a day too - she grumbles a bit, but doesnt' attack - he said she wasnt vicious, but I have seen a nasty streak in her, but that could have been being uprooted after 13 years. She is a lovely cat, I dont think she will ever be affectionate, but I would just class her as independent, as she has always interacted with me and not for someone who wants a lap cat - just hope we can find someone willing to take on a 13yo, although the vet did say he couldn't believe her age.
