It's widely known that many ancient civilizations considered cats to be deities. In ancient Egypt, cats and lions were considered so sacred they could often be found on jewelry, in art and decorating ancient artifacts. When you see a purrfect feline like Tigris, with her regal air and elegant manner, it's no wonder cats were considered other worldly.

How APA! describes Tigris: Elegant, mellow and playful

What APA! says about Tigris:

Tigris is the kind of cat who always seems composed and in charge, so it lends her a regal air. When we first met Tigris, she was relaxing and curled up on a fluffy bed. It felt like we were walking into the bedchamber of a queen. She regarded us coolly with her intense emerald-colored eyes before graciously allowing us to pet her.

She fancies herself somewhat of a hunting enthusiast. Tigris deftly attacks toys and — once satisfied that they're "dead" — carries them around in her mouth with her tail held high just waiting for your praise.

Why APA! says Tigris deserves your love:

You might think that a cat so regal would be difficult to get along with, but Tigris just loves the company of other cats. Tigris is independent, so she would appreciate a home either with or without other animals. She's an excellent playmate and enjoys wrestling matches with other energetic and enthusiastic cats.

Tigris' mellow nature and poise would help her adapt to a variety of families. People looking for a companion cat that is affectionate, smart and interactive but also independent would do well to meet Tigris.
