Tigress is one of our residents who was surrendered because of owner allergies. Tigress is a beautiful torbie (a tabby with tortoiseshell coloring) and her soft fur is touched with stripes of gold. Her brilliant green eyes look serenely out at the world with the wisdom of its ways. She is very affectionate and loves to have people come over to stroke her soft coat. She will sometimes come forward to greet people seeking to be petted. She doesn't fight for attention like some of the more extroverted cats. That's why staff and volunteers believe she gets overlooked in the community setting with her calm and gentle nature. Her play style is also calm – she likes to bat at toys close to her, and go for the red dot when it comes by. But she won't fight like the huntress whose name she shares.
Tigress gets along with her roommates so she would do well in a multi-cat home. She would also enjoy being a sole companion. While Tigress knows her way around the Meow Manor, it's not a forever home and she would gladly give it all up to explore a new forever home and have a special family to call her own. Her adoption fee is $99, which includes spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian.
The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society is located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel. We are off San Gabriel Blvd, north of Mission and south of Las Tunas Drive. To arrange a ‘Meet and Greet’ with Tigress, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday.
