   Leave a treat for Tiger (In loving memory)

Cattus Giganticus, Tigerrific, The Dude, Dingo Ears, Touch Lamp (because he starts to purr immediately at the slightest touch)

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Attention. Pet me pet me pet me. He'll tap you with his paw to get your attention, and if you stop petting him he'll grab your hand with his paw to pull it back to him.

Being ignored, the vacuum cleaner.

Favorite Toy:
Other cats' tails and paws.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Dad's lap, or Mom's if Dad is not around. If no laps are available, he likes to curl up with Jill or Tinker, the three of them sometimes sleep in a heap.

Favorite Food:
The juice drained from canned salmon and tuna. Occasional bites of chicken (in his opinion, far too occasional.)

Purring loud enough to shake the building foundations. Detecting the sound of a salmon can being opened from any distance. Drinks water by dipping his paw into the bowl and lapping it out of his cupped paw.


Arrival Story:
Tiger is a big, loveable goof, very laidback and happy and he can make you feel better just by sitting next to you for a minute. Tiger and his sister Tinker were littermates from a mama barn cat, and the whole litter was brought to my mother-in-law's veterinarian to be adopted out. Mum agreed to take the two of them and they all took very good care of each other for many years. When our dear Mum passed away, Tinker and Tiger came to live with us and they have made our home a more delightful place by their presence.

Tiger is the biggest house cat I have ever seen. He can easily raise up and put his front paws on the kitchen counter and check out what I'm doing up there. He can tap his paw on the shoulder of even a tall person seated at our table. He's the official greeter for the household and loves people--Tiger has never met a stranger. He especially adores our Swiss Chalet chicken delivery girl, and flirts with her quite shamelessly. Tiger is actually a Canadian Shorthair rather than an American Shorthair--he and sis Tinker are Canadian citizens.
