  • Affectionate: Don’t be fooled by his initial timidness! Tussock loves human affection and will reward your patience with rumbling purrs. He might even surprise you with a loving head bump!
  • Mellow & Easygoing: This gentle soul would thrive in an adult-only and older children (teenagers) home where he can blossom at his own pace.
  • Secretly Loves Pets: Though cautious at first, a gentle touch melts Tussock’s heart. Once he realizes you’re a friend, he can’t get enough attention!

Estimated Birthdate: roughly March 23rd, 2023

Breed: Domestic Longhair (DLH) – A handsome tabby with a soft, brown and white coat. He enjoys brushing.

Health: He is neutered, microchipped, and given age-appropriate vaccines. He tested negative (good) for FeLV and FIV

Living Situation: Tussock gets along well with other cats, but a home without small children or dogs would be ideal for this mellow soul.
