    For Tiger (RIP)-

    BSPQ (Bold Social Compliant Quiet)

    For most people this is a cat with a delightful temperament. A confident, easy-going, quiet, friendly cat, whose bold nature may cause him to get into mischief, but his charming, compliant attitude makes you love him anyway. The SPQ cats, whether bold or cautious, are often the 'beloved' cats in your life. Because he is bold, the BSPQ cat does not require the patience of an experienced cat lover to reveal his social inclinations. This kitty tends to have a repertoire of cute endearing gestures that he uses to get attention and initiate contact. Unlike his vocal counterpart, he is rarely annoying or perceived to be demanding. He may physically interfere with a project by laying on your computer keyboard, book, or newspaper, or by knocking beads, papers, tools, or other craft items on the floor. When he wants your attention at least he is quiet about it. Once he does get your attention, he then puts on a 'cute act' and disarms your anger over the interuption.

    The BSPQ will most likely be a charming kitten. Bold and friendly, he welcomes attention and is likely to investigate anything or anyone new to his environment. Being a compliant cat, he will probably allow you to pick him up, unless he is feeling particularly frisky and playful. It is often a good idea to acquire kittens in pairs, this is especially true with bold social kittens who may be bored and lonely without a companion. The BSPQ will generally do well in a multi-cat group. He is probably pretty flexible when it comes to indoor or indoor / outdoor lifestyle choices as long as his indoor environment is sufficiently stimulating. Bold social cats need adventure and companionship, it would not be fair to leave him alone in a small apartment for long periods of time.

    Your BSPQ cat will generally accept a reasonable amount of manipulation; so grooming, pilling, nail trimming and the like are not a major ordeal. Not only will your veterinarian be able to work with this cat, but you will also be able to follow through with treatment at home. However, a very bright BSPQ cat may make you feel as though he is always one step ahead of you. A master of the subtle art of body language, he will be able to read you like a book. Before you know it he will have you trained. He is a bold cat so clapping hands and verbal admonishments will probably not discourage unwanted behavior. As with most cats, encouraging appropriate and desirable behaviors is a matter of negotiation rather than a declaration of law.

    The BSPQ is often the cat who is able to make a cat lover out of a skeptic. He is the cat who can cause a person to sheepishly recant previously stated notions about the undesirably of cats as friends and beloved companions. This is the cat who most often elicits the declaration, "I've always been a dog person, but this cat is different!"

    Holmes: CSPQ (cautious, social, compliant, quiet)
    Watson: BSPQ (bold, social, compliant, quiet)

    They are brothers, so they get along very well most of the time.

    Edit:
    In MBTI terms I´d say Holmes - INFJ, Watson - ESFP

    Grayson:
    CSDQ (Cautious Social Defiant Quiet)
    Cautious social cats require time and familiarity to gain confidence and reveal their social nature. Once you have established a relationship, CSDQ cats can be very affectionate companions. This cat even though social is usually no where to be seen when you have house guests. Your friends will probably just have to believe you when you tell tales of your charming playful cat who showers you with affection.

    If as a kitten the CSDQ cat has had positive contact with people, he will probably be open to a friendly approach. He may be easily frightened however, so a calm, patient demeanor will be needed. He may not reveal his defiant tendency as a young kitten. Sometimes the first clue you get is during his routine kitten visits at the veterinary clinic. He is a cautious kitty and will not like being in an unfamiliar environment. Drawing blood or trimming claws may prompt his first show of defiant behavior, usually fear, expressed with a hiss, spit, and a slap. Over reacting to his kitten defiance may set the stage for unpleasant veterinary visits from then on.

    It may be dificult for you to get your CSDQ cat into a carrier, trim his claws, groom him or give him pills. Active resistance to restraint or manipulation can make these cats dificult to work with. Quiet defiant cats are generally less intimidating than their vocal counterparts. Patient calm persistance may allow you to establish regular routines for these activities that your CSDQ cat will find acceptable. It is, however, easy to miss a quiet cat's more subtle warnings and exceed his limits resulting in a bite or scratch. Quiet defiant cats may confuse some people, but are generally more managable because it is easier for one to remain calm when a cat is not screaming, growling, hissing, and spitting at you. Still, determined physical resistance is likely to discourage all but the most determined cat owners. CSDQ cats are often the arbiters of good and bad human behavior and are able to effectively train their human companions. Your cat may be the boss and you don't even realized it.

    Cautious social cats may not initiate contact, but are likely to respond favorably to contact initiated by a familiar companion. With people the cautious social cat may respond to a friendly overture with face rubbing and bunting behavior. Frequent facial rubbing is common in cautious but social cats since a stable recognizable home territory is where they feel most confident. Being surrounded by olfactory evidence that he is on his own property is reasuring, and the more friendly facial pheromone marking system does not preclude social interaction. Because he is a social cat, the CSDQ cat will probably be comfortable in a multi-cat home. The CSDQ cat needs to gain familiarity with and trust in his feline companions as well as his human ones. An instance of displaced aggression could result in a long standing feline feud. It is less likely that a CSDQ cat will resort to urine marking even if there is a purrsonality clash in a multi-cat home. CSDQ cats are probably content to be indoor cats as long as they receive enough social interaction.

    This is a cat that will respond favorably to your attention and love. Because we rarely have to 'make' our kitties do something that they don't want to do, life with a CSDQ cat can be very pleasant. As long as you behave, this cat will make you feel special.
    Farrah:
    BSDQ (Bold Social Defiant Quiet)
    Like her vocal counterpart the BSDQ cat is one who actively seeks attention and companionship. As long as she does not feel restricted or imposed upon, she is a friendly charming companion. As a quiet cat, she is less likely to annoy you with frequent meowing, or intimidate you with vocal defiance. However, when crossed the BSDQ is more likely to be pushed to acts of physical violence. Both the BSDV cat and the BSDQ cat like to have their own way. Because people generally respond more readily to vocal communication the BSDV cat is a bit more effective in pushing us around. The BSDQ cat tends to catch us by surprise when her defiant side shows itself.

    As a kitten, the BSDQ cat is a lively, friendly cutie. She may be more talkative as a kitten than as an adult, but is still much quieter than the BSDV cat. She is a squirmy kitten who likes your company, folllows you around and even likes to be petted, she just does not want to be confined or restricted. She will get increasingly agitated when you try to hold on to her or make her do something she does not want to do. The BSDQ kitten may get quite angry when you try to trim her claws. She may become a cat who is a difficult patient in a veterinary clinic. Any anger she feels in response to examination and treatment, is likely to be expressed as a bite or a swat with little in the way of an obvious warning.

    In a multi-cat group the BSDQ cat will tend to be a dominant member of the group. She is bold and social so she will seek out the company of others and she is not easily intimidated. Other cats will understand her quiet gestures and body language. Because she likes to get her own way, there may be conflict when she is interacting with another defiant cat. If neither cat is vocal, people in the household may not even be aware of the on-going power struggle between two Bold Defiant Quiet cats.

    When living with a BSDQ cat, it is important to learn how to effectively communicate with him. Her behavior is negotiable, but not likely to be enforceable. Fighting with a defiant cat is not likely to be productive. This is a cat that may end up biting 'unexpectedly' when seemingly unprovoked. (At least in the eyes of the provocator who received the bite.) When you have house guests you may need to watch her closely. She may join the party, get over stimulated or feel imposed upon, and bite a well-meaning, but cat-body-language-illiterate guest. The BSDQ cat can be a favorite, as long as you are not intimidated by her take-charge attitude. Mutual respect is required for a successfull, loving relationship with a BSDQ cat.
    Both are mostly accurate... However, Grayson is the older cat and has been in the house longer, so he's the dominate cat, not Farrah like the description would lead you to believe.

    Based on the very limited information I know about Velocity so far:

    BAPQ (Bold Aloof Compliant Quiet)
    The BAPQ cat does not provide the 'dog-like' behavior that some people value so highly. He must be appreciated for the traditional 'cat-like' qualities of independence and above-it-all confidence that he so perfectly embodies. This temperament type is an ideal cat for someone who wishes to decorate his or her home with an undemanding self-sufficient companion. Confident and quiet, BAPQ cats can be very attractive. They are not likely to interfere with your projects. You can read, work at the computer, sew, or do crafts without interference from a kitty craving social interaction. Your lovely bold cat will remain on display even in the presence of strangers as long as no one rudely invades his space. His compliant nature will prevent him from actively resisting their advances, he will simply leave quietly at the first opportunity. It is likely that he will find a less accessible, but still visible vantage point. He is bold cat, after all, and likes to be where the action is.

    It may be dificult to distinguish between a BAPQ kitten and a BSPQ kitten. Both will be confident and adventurous. Both will allow you to pick them up with little struggle. And, both will be quiet. If you have the opportunity to observe the litter and notice which kittens seem to like the company of others, and which kittens tend to wander off on their own, you may be able to spot the more independent BAPQ. Interaction with people will be influenced by early experience. As an adult he will not likely be described as a really friendly cat. He will be more likely to be described as an independent cat.

    When allowed outdoors the BAPQ cat may be a happy wanderer. His bold nature leading him to seek adventure, he may disappear for days at a time. When confined to the indoors, he may need some form of entertainment or his natural exuberance may result in destructive activities. In multiple cat groups the BAPQ probably is not a trouble maker but he would not be inclined to form close alliances. His bold compliant nature would tend to command respect without precipitating conflict. However, a crowded household may cause the BAPQ cat to quietly move down the road rather than share space with too many other individuals. He is easy going but does not enjoy constant contact with others.

    Compliant quiet cats are generally easy to work with. Aloof cats do not tend to actively seek social interaction, but dealing with veterinarians, groomers, pet sitters, and the like does not ruffle the feathers of the BAPQ cat. As long as you can find him in time for your appointment, veterinary visits will not be a problem. Confident, with a go-along to get-along attitude, this quiet, independent cat can be a wonderful low-maintenance companion.

    I suppose this is accurate....although my cat acts out by puking, not "inappropriate elimination". She can be super lovable once she trusts you too. I think she would have been feral if we had not taken her in...

    I think she's somewhere between social & aloof though....if we had gotten another cat earlier, she'd probably be more open to other cats.


    CADV (Cautious Aloof Defiant Vocal)
    Cats of this temperament type may actually discourage interaction with people. This is another temperament type you are likely to find with greater frequency in successful feral cats. Caution, independence and defiant vocalization allow this cat to remain free of human interference. Her aloof nature may even help her to avoid infectious disease because she will tend to be a solitary cat. Unlike her quiet counterpart, this vocal cat communicates her fear and anger clearly to those people who would interfere with her for good or ill. Provision of food shelter, and security are the way to win the heart of a CADV cat, but one also needs a good deal of patience. Familiarity and a sense of control are needed for her to feel comfortable, but she also needs her space. Because she is aloof and vocal, her repertoire of sounds probably tends to be weighted towards the discordant end of the spectrum.

    The CADV kitten will tend to be shy and may greet your advances with angry sounding hissing spitting and yowling. She will probably try to just get away, but may bite or claw a well meaning person who doesn't heed her vocal warning and makes her feel trapped. Familiarity with friendly people from very early kittenhood (prior to weaning) will probably be necessary for her to form a successful human bond as an adult. A calm non-reactive demeanor, food, and patience are the tools needed to win her trust, a trust that is easily broken if you make her feel uneasy. She will probably never be a 'party cat'; your friends may never see her,she is not that interested in social interaction and makes friends very cautiously if at all.

    This is not a cat who likes to live in groups. Like the CADQ cat, her vocal counterpart is probably happiest when she is able to establish a territory and conduct her affairs with minimal social interaction. She wants to know the boundaries of her territory and she wants others to recognize them as well. Urine and feces rather than facial pheromones may be her markers of choice. In a multiple cat household she may apppear to be low man on the totem pole, frequently engaging in vocal conflict even when approached by the most mellow of house members. She is not bold or social. She does not initiate these encounters. She would prefer to avoid them. Inappropriate ellimination may be the ultimate manifestation of this conflict. The CADV cat may not be the one you observe engaging in the behavior even though she may initiate the cycle of urine marking. Cautious aloof cats may be able to live harmoniously in multi-cat homes as long as there is sufficient space and their boundaries are respected by all. Living in a single cat household with a person who has reasonable expectations when it comes to display of affection may work out best.

    This is a temperament type for whom a veterinary visit can be a horror show. She is defiant with little desire for physical contact, and she hates the anxiety and loss of control she feels when removed from her home territory. Whats more she is inclined to express her fear and anger in loud intimidating ways, and will follow up with physical violence when backed into a corner from which she feels there is no excape. It is fruitless and even dangerous to engage in a battle with the CADV cat. A screaming angry cat does not bring out the best behavior in people either, so avoiding a violent confrontation is advisable. It is often best to lightly anesthetize her with a quick acting inhalant like isoflurane or sevoflurane after shifting her from her carrier to an anesthesia chamber with as little fanfare as possible whenever examination and treatment are needed.

    Aloof cats with a defiant nature that causes them to adopt a defensive aggressive response to fear or anger are not the easiest cats to live with. A cautious nature makes this cat more easily spooked than her bold counterpart so her defiance is more often an expression of fear. If you want a lap cat that showers you with love and affection, the CADQ is not the cat for you. It is possible, however that you may have a truely meaningful relationship with your CADV cat. Sometimes the relationships that require the most of us can be the most rewarding in the long run. To be the one special person in the life of a clever, unique cat who does not give her love and trust easily is really something special.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Sophia:

    CSPV (Cautious Social Compliant Vocal)
    As long as this kitty is allowed time and opportunity to gain confidence, the CSPV is an affectionate easy going companion. Her vocal style can be an asset or a liability depending on the extent of her vocabulary. Sociability in a cautious cat is generally limited only by opportunity to gain confidence and develop relationships at her own pace. CSPV's are not neccessarily "one person cats". The extent to which your CSPV cat will interact with your friends and family is largely dependent on familiarity and prior experience. She is probably not a cat who will make an appearance at a party, but she may graciously interact with frequent overnight guests.

    As a kitten the CSPV is a team player. She may form an attachment to a bolder sibling or several cautious littermates may "hang out " together. She likes interactive play and does not tend to venture out on her own. Adopting a pair of kittens will make her transition to her new home easiest. Prior experience influences the behavior of this cautious cat. Early positive contact with people encourages her sociability with people.

    When a person has not known a CSPV cat from kittenhood, it is easy to assume that she has known "abuse" even if this is not the case. Being social and compliant this cat seeks attention and tends to have a fairly high tolerance for handling, however she is cautious, and will tend to frighten easily. She will crouch, duck, or flee if she is the least bit unsure about a situation. When her sense of caution and uneasiness is expressed vocally it is very easy to get the wrong impression. To avoid unpleasant veterinary exams, it is important that no one overreact to the vocal communication style of the CSPV. She is a compliant cat, so she will probably not be that hard to handle, but she may sound like she could be.

    The CSPV will probably make out just fine in a stable multi-cat household. As with all of the cautious cats, she does not like change. There is a good chance that she will be content as an indoor cat, she is not likely to long for adventure. The major difference between the CSPV and her quiet counterpart will be the extent to which she talks to you. These two temperament types share many attractive qualities. It is well worth your while to take the time to get to know her. If you provide a safe secure environment, she is easy to get along with and will give you lots of affection.
