A best friend in a fur suit

He was found at a meat packing plant 14 years ago.

He survived a tornado in 1998.

He was thrown out of our house and was missing for three months.

He was starving in a shed in a neighbor's house.

He was the calmest cat who always let you know when he was hungry. He loved to sleep under the Christmas tree, and he liked to sneak out the house for a few hours—once for three days—only to be found two doors down at the neighbor's.

He passed away November 25th. He waited until I (Mom) came home. I got to hold him one last time before he took his last breath: a best friend in a fur suit.

The most wonderful thing about Tigger is he's the only one!

Rest in peace.
