Arrival Story:
I adopted Tiger from a farm when she was about 4 months old. A little girl was carrying her around and when I saw her, I knew I just had to have her. Tiger was a spoiled little girl from the start. She knew how to wrap you around her paw. When she was a kitten, I used to have to lock her out of the bedroom because she would nip at your feet all night long. She also was a table scraper. No matter what you were eating, she would have her face in it. Her favorite was milk and ice cream. She loved to be brushed, as soon as she would see the brush, she would flip on her side. She was very much a kissy face, she would crawl up on your chest and give kiss after kiss after kiss. She was our little lover girl. We miss her very much.

Our Tiger has since passed away at the age of 18 from lymphoma.

Tally and Tigger are getting married TODAY!

Daddy's Girl: Tiger was Daddy's Girl. Before her Daddy and I got married, sometimes he would spend the night, when he left, she would sit on the couch looking out the window for him to return. Sometimes, she would stay on that couch all night waiting for him. She knew the sound of his car, and all of a sudden she would jump on the couch, look out the window until he drove up. Her Daddy spoiled her terribly, giving her whatever she wanted. At dinner time, she would sit on the chair next to him and wait for a "scraper". If he wasn't moving fast enough she would put her paw on his arm as if to say, Um excuse me. It was so cute. She would sit on his shoulder with her head next to his and fall asleep. When she started to get sick, it was very hard for her Daddy and I think in her own way, she tried to avoid him the last few days, so she didn't have to see him hurt. He loved her very much. And the funny thing is, her Daddy said he wasn't a "cat person". Leave it to our Tiger to change his mind! Crazy Calico.

Hello Furriends,

In the early fall, 22 years ago, mom saw a little girl holding a calico in her arms. Mom went over and asked the little girl if she could hold the kitty. The kitty looked at mom and meowed. Mom took her over to a man in the car, and the man kept saying "no". Mom would eventually get her way, and I was on my way to my new home.

My home life for the next several years would be filled with not love, but jealousy, fighting and lots of screaming. I was very loved, and so was Sami, but our lives would not come full circle until 1997. That's when mom packed us up and we left. Then we met our daddy. I loved him immediately. The four of us lived a happy life, a life that we were denied earlier, but had finally come to us.

Happy times, and sad times, we were together. I spent my days curled up on daddy's arm and lap, snuggled up next to him when we went to bed purring myself to sleep. I sat next to daddy during dinner waiting fur my treat and then putting my face into his cereal and his ice cream.

Years went by and my little sisfur, Sami, went to the Bridge, I then welcomed another little sisfur into our home. I soon became a little slower, not quite jumping on the couch as fast and needing some steps that mom so patiently helped me learn to use so I could sleep on the bed at night.

I wasn't as hungry as I used to be and spent alot of time sleeping by the couch. Mom knew something wasn't quite right. She took me to see Dr. Troy and he gave mom & dad the news that I had lymphoma. We tried steroids, but I didn't like medicine, and maybe after 18 years it was my time.....

Through much heartbreak and many tears, mom stayed home with me, just like she had done with Sami and we spent the afternoon on the swing, with her telling me how much she loved me. I didn't want to snuggle with Daddy, as Daddy was having a furry hard time accepting the fact that this was probably the last time he would see me look at him, give him kisses on the face and purr myself to sleep. I just knew it was too much fur him.

We all went to see Dr. Troy and mom held me in her arms and whispered in my ear, she loved me and Dr. Troy quietly and lovingly helped me cross to the Bridge. I watched from the heavens and mom held me and wouldn't let me go, as Daddy stood next to her with tears flowing down his face and Auntie holding mom telling her that I was gone.

Four years ago today, I left Earth fur the Bridge, never furgetting how much my furmily loved me and now much I loved them.

May our loving memories together give mom and dad the peace and comfort they need today remembering me.

Like Sami said, where does all the time go? The four of us celebrated our wedding annifursary earlier this month. Gem had whisked Sami away fur the weekend, so we catsat Cheddar. I do love my little nephew Cheddar - but he is the pawful! MOL!

Whiskey and I then celebrate our annifursary quietly, just the two of us. Sometimes, when I look at Whiskey I remember my first thoughts about him. First being, so gruff! It took me a long time to tame him! But I'm sure glad I did! Under that tough exterior, what a marshmellow he is and I sure love it!

I can't believe that Valentine's Day is almost here! The day of love - I hope that everykitty can find somecat to love as much as I love my Whiskey.
