Our little cat, Tiger, is about 5 months of age. We hand fed it since it was an orphan, one of 12 kittens. They learned to climb on my husband's chest and nuzzle his beard. They use their hands to ask to be held.
We have this one out of the litter that we kept. Tiger's mom was a Maine Coon mix. They all look like Tabbies, they are grey and striped. Our cat had kittens because she ran away and did the cat thing on the day of her spay appointment. She ran out the door and into the backyard and came back with kittens.
We like to turn a piece of carpet over and a nail it to a piece of wood and leave it for the cat to scratch on, it is the same feel as that expensive thing they sell that looks like cardboard. It lasts longer though. You can also roll up a little remnant square if you can, and tie it and it is fun for them to scratch on, especially if you use the spray on it but you don't have to use the catnip spray.
Our Tiger is like a dog, if you don't pay attention to it in the right way or at the right time, it will follow you around holding its paws up for attention like a little child. It also likes to play with the ferret we have named "Where's the Weasel?"
We love cats of all types, but especially tiger kitties.
Your Tiger is beautiful.
Thanks for sharing him with us.
