Meet Tigger!

A few weeks ago I discovered a cat that I had really wanted to adopt earlier this summer from a local no-kill rescue was up for adoption again through the same group. I had fallen in love with his profile on Petfinder, and was delighted to see that he was up for adoption again (though part of me was also sad that what should have been his forever home didn't work out). I promptly put in an application and was approved and got to bring Tigger home about a week later. We've been coming up with fun nicknames for him, and he seems to go by Tig or Mr T. the most.

He's just over four years old and was very freaked out by the car ride back to my house He ended up biting my dad out of what we are pretty sure was a straight fear and/or stress reaction to the whole ordeal. So, my dad worked on feeding him tasty treats along with his meals and thankfully all is well now. Tig is a hefty boy - he was 22.7 pounds when I adopted him! So his weight loss is a careful work in progress and we'll be going in for a check-up at the vet next week. He has big features and big paws, so he is built large to begin with, but he loves to play almost as much as he loves to eat so we are doing okay so far. He spends nights snuggling on my bed with me and days snoozing on the couch in the picture below. Tig is really a lovely cat and I feel very fortunate to be able to give him a home.







Unfortunately I've lost the cord to my camera, so these pictures from my phone will have to do until I can upload some more!

Thanks Marie! My dad was taken aback by the bite incident, but he definitely didn't hold it against Tigger at all. He was upset only in that he felt bad because he was trying to be TIg's friend right away and unintentionally stressed him out instead while Tig was still getting used to us. Luckily, salmon treats cure all ills!

RIP Callie, my heart cat, 1992-2009

Given the turn of circumstances, it sounds like you and he were meant to be together...congratulations! He certainly looks comfy snoozing on that couch!

What a happy story! Tig is just gorgeous -- I love that stomach shot! He must be comfortable in your house to be lying like that!
