Arrival Story:
Tig was left at the humane society I worked for. Immediately I fell in love with his happy face and easy-going personality. Unfortunately, shelter life can get the best of even docile cats and Tig because very depressed. He quit eating altogether and lost a lot of weight. I took him home to get him out of the shelter environment and to force feed him. My mom worked the day shift and I took care of the night. Soon Tig was joined by another "cat anorexic," Oscar. There they sat, side by side in their large kennels in our make shift hospital. Six months passed before Tig ate on his own (Oscar too) and when he did we definitely celebrated. Of course, now he is on the verge of overeating, but I try to keep his self-starving days in mind when he meows for food. I definitely fell in love with Tig while caring for him so when I moved to my new house, he of course went with me. Along with Marcus, Oscar and Panda - my own zoo. Tig was at least 6 years old when he finally came to live with me. He is a shining example of how great it can be to adopt an adult cat!
