About ...
Tangerine is friendly to ALL cats - a real gentleman - but is still a bit suspicious of humans.

He is happy to be around people - he is not fearful or worried. He will go to sleep on the sofa next to you.

... but he does not really want to be touched - unless it is on his terms. He isn't a "cuddle up" cat...

Which is why all the photos we have show him with slightly grubby eyes and ears - it is still stressful for him to have them cleaned.

He did escape once, but came back after a wander around the area.

He very much enjoys playing with other cats - he really is a "nice person". Other cats in distress unsettle him - he wants to go and comfort them.

He is on a diet at the moment - too many treats as we socialized him.

He does enjoy cat company and is the least aggressive cat we have ever encountered.

He really needs a one-to-one relationship with someone.
