Six (6) years ago we went to collect Tigra. Picked to be a friend for Teo, we had to wait for her to recover from a broken leg, and it’s fair to say we were a little concerned how her nervousness would cope with life with 6 cats and Teo.
Took her all of an hour to find the sofa and make herself at home!!
Still nervous around strangers she has handled the loss of Teo (and Sophie) and the addition of Marti, Tobi, and Tito with no issues and since we have moved to the UK she has been far more comfortable around people that she first meets.
She is still nutty as a fruitcake, and can be more than a tad grumpy but she loves her life and we love having her in our life.
