Tiger


This is my Mom and Dad's cat Tiger. He has a sibling named Princess and my sister has their other sister (a gray tabby that she named Abigail). The mama cat showed up on their doorstep and decided to have her kittens in my parent's back yard. (They found a home for mama cat and her other kitten too.) That was 10 years ago and Princess and Tiger have been indoor spoiled pampered house cats all of their lives. Tiger meows to get you to follow him to his food dish. He wants to be petted while he eats and he always gets what he wants! My parents dote on them as much as they do the grandkids! -Karen S.

OK, Orange Tabbys, that's just not fair. My heart can't take it, I just love them so much. What a great story, too! Tiger is quite the handsome cat!

Good Morning to all the Fuzz out there. Oh, yes Kat, I think we should still shoot for the Missouri trip in 2008. Is everyone still agreed?

I'm still in! It just seems so long until then.

Isn't Tiger a cutie? One of my cats who went before, Thomas, was a yellow tiger. He was a "dat," part dog, part cat. He would run to the door if the doorbell rang, and he loved to walk on a leash. He knew all the kids in the neighborhood, and they all knew him.

Good morning all! Yes, Tiger is an adorable ginger boy! I love the pose in the picture on the right, lol!

Jan, that is so cute...a "dat"! Lol! My Danny Boy was a "dat" then!

Oh thanks for posting my Uncle Tiger! I forgot to mention that he is ONE BIG CAT!! I think he weighs about 15 lbs. I will make sure my Mom stops by for a look.

Everybody keep Princess (his sister) in your prayers. She is at the animal hospital and is very sick. She has a blockage in her colon and they are giving her medicine to try to move it through. She isn't eating and she has lost weight. They haven't mentioned surgery yet, but I would expect that is the next step if this doesn't work.

Gingers are so affectionate! My ginger boy grabs your hand if you think you're done petting him! Tiger is gorgeous! Shouldn't all cats be spoiled?

Merry Christmas to the whole fuzz family! This is my last post til after the holiday!

Tiger is a beautiful, BIG kittie. Oh, love to pick him up and hugggggg him. I love orinch kitties too.

Charley's physical therapist was here a while ago, a new guy, and Missy, KC and Bear were running around him -- thank goodness he's an animal lover -- and he said, 'oh, you've got three nice cats'!!!! See, Bear is a cat!

Karen S. said...

My Mom just called and they took Princess in for emergency surgery to remove the blockage.

Tiger will be very pleased that he as attained celebrity status!

KarenS - I'll definately be keeping Princess in my thoughts & prayers! I'll put her on the PP&PB list, if that's ok.

ML - This is what I say about Sammie: She (& Bear) is a kitty in the body of a woofie! Right?!

....I love your bedlinen TIger.....

I, too, will be praying for Princess. Such a hard thing to see your baby suffer. She's getting the help she needs and will with Tiger in no time.

You know, I can't get over how much Tiger looks like Oscar! It's the eyes! Oscar has more white around the chest, but he has those same eyes! And yes, he's huge, too. I think it's a Ginger trait. My Oscar is 16.5 pounds. He actually thinks he's a tiny kitten. After my surgery he wanted to lay on my stomache. Being that I had a Hysterectomy through the tummy, I couldn't even hold him on my lap, he caould sit next to my. That just broke his heart because in my lap is where he always sits. I can now hold him on my lap as long as he doesn't "knead dough!" LOL!

Sammy and Bear and all the rest are for sure cat's in a dog's body. "Dat" is a good word!

Wow, my spelling really sucks today! It's a good thing you're all my family!

Sounds like Mama cat knew what she was doing when she found you. Tiger (and family) are lucky cats.
