Poor Touch of Grey. She’s a junk yard dog trapped in a cat’s body and she’s angry about it.
If you are looking for the attitude of a dog but the independence of a cat, she’s your girl.
Touch, or Tig TOG or Tiggy, came to the rescue with her kittens. She’s bossy with other cats, and clumsy. Her tail is always flicking and I wonder if past abuse has left her with neurological damage.
She goes from sweet to scathing and moody as soon as she feels you have wronged her— so TOG needs a home without children. Her people need to understand their relationship with her will be on her terms.
She responds to verbal commands, likes routines and patrols the house but will intimidate other cats. She won’t attack and hurt them but she will make her presence known.
On the other hand, she doesn’t mind our 60-pound dog.
She’s triggered by touching her rear end. She gets upset around blankets. And you have to convince her to come with you versus handling her.
But she’s come really far and will even let me pick her up and put her on my lap.
