Arrival Story: My friend convinced me I needed a cat and I found her at the Human Society. I picked her up and she wrapped herself around my arm and proceeded to lick me and purred as loud as she could. She stole my heart. When I got her home, she bounced around all over the place, so I named her Tigger.
Bio: Owning a cat was a new experience for me. I was so naive! Tigger tested my patience that first 6 months of coming home! With no other animals in the house at the time, she found ways of entertaining herself at the expense of my furniture, carpet and door jams. I couldn't wait for her to turn 6 months old. If she was going to have any future in my house, I HAD to have her front paws declawed out of necessity. I think that experience was harder on me than it was on her. I don't even think she realizes that they're gone. She still scratches the posts and attacks me as if she still has them. Of course she claws me with those back ones every chance she gets. I'm guessing PAYBACKS!
Birthday = March 15.
Woohoo! One of the DDP's today!!! Thank you Catster for selecting me today. Again, it's an honor and a pleasure to be chosen and very much appreciated! Mom is so proud when she sees one of her babies being featured! We just wanted to take a minute and thank Catster for the selection and to thank everyone that sent pmails and presents of concatulations! We love you Catster and am so glad the site isn't shutting down!!! We really do love it here!
Time flies so fast!!! I can't believe yet another year has come and gone since you left. So much has happened in the last 2 years which makes it seem like you've been gone longer at times. If it wasn't for a few very thoughtful Catsters today giving you Remembrance rosettes in honor of your bridge anniversary, I probably would not have remembered the anniversary. It's not that I don't miss you because I miss you every day...it's just that life is so busy and I'm trying to take care of the kitties that are still living. I try to remember the good memories of you and not focus on the day you died. I know you understand and don't hold it against me.
You are never far from my thoughts and I'm hopeful we'll be together again some day. Until then, don't forget how much you are loved and how much I miss you. I love you Tigger with all of my heart and soul.
Woohoo!!!! DOTD! What an honor! Thank you Catster for selecting me today! What a pleasant surprise to wake up to! Thank you Tundra and family for making my St Patty's Day pic for this special occasion!
On a bittersweet note, mom is keeping vigil over Lucky because today might be the day he crosses the bridge. You can read his diary to see what's going on with him.
Thank you again for selecting me as today's Diary of the Day! Such a proud honor and we really appreciate it! Thank you Catster!!!
