Arrival Story:
I (Tigger's mommy) moved up to Tennessee for grad school in August 2000. I had a small apartment and was very lonely in there, so thought that a cat would make a nice companion. I visited a cat rescue group run through a local vet's office. Tigger was the smallest, ugliest kitten there, but as soon as he saw me, he stuck his paws through the cage bars and meowed at me constantly while most of the other cats ignored me! He was the first one I picked up, and he settled comfortably in my arms. After visiting with several other cats, I KNEW that Tigger was the one for me!

We had a wonderful first year together and saw snow for the first time that November. The year ended badly when Tigger accidentally swallowed a marble (the kind in plant pots). It took surgery to get it out and two months of force feeding to get him back on track, but he is still with us. Now, he is a content kitty back in Florida and enjoys living with (and bossing around) his dog friends Patrick and Amber!

I begged mommy to help me write my first diary entry tonight. I don't know why I'm keeping a diary. It seems kind of girly. But I wanted my mommy's friends to be able to see cute pictures of me on Catster and thought they may want me to say hi to them sometimes. Otherwise it would be a waste of my precious sleeping time.

I am tired. That big Patrick was chasing me tonight. It's not like he's never seen me before! We've been together a lot! But once in a while he looks at me like I'm this weird new thing and has to start chasing and growling. I think he's just playing but he sure does make a fool of himself. He's not as smart as me. Amber leaves me alone. She knows better. After all the bossing her around I did when she was a baby, she knows not to mess with TIGGER!

Man oh man am I tired. Perhaps mommy can persuade me to write some stuff later. I have a good mommy really. She did spend a ton of money to help me after I swallowed that stupid marble. And she always feeds me on time. Gotta love that.
