|Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I have grown up my whole life with cats. I am 42 years old, I have been married to my wife for 7 years so far. I have had 8 cats so far growing up. My latest cat is named Tigger. She is the most loving cat I have ever had. My other cats I had as a child were named: Mikey, Patty, Velvet, Timmins and Snowshoe. Then when I has 11 we got two more cats, Smokey and Goofy.
To give you an idea how much Tigger loves us, last year my wife was off work for about 9 months dealing with an ovarian cyst and endometriosis. When ever I either went down stairs to have a cigarette or do laundry, I live in an apartment building, Tigger would park herself next to my wife's computer chair and not budge until I came back.
Tigger helped me take care of my wife. Tigger knew my wife was in pain and did her best to distract my wife from her pain by either doing things to make my wife laugh or sitting with her keeping her company. When we got home after my wife's surgery Tigger was so happy to see my wife feeling better that she was looking up at my wife and meowing, basically saying I'm happy that you're feeling better.
I myself am dealing with chronic pain in my lower back. I have Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and Degenerative Disc Disease in my lower back. Tigger knows I am in constant pain and does her best to distract me from my pain. I have to sleep on the couch in a reclined position because I can't sleep flat on my back in the bed next to my wife.
There was one day I was really down because of my pain, I was feeling sorry for myself. I was sitting on the couch crying and Tigger jumped on the couch, she could see I was upset so she started pawing at my face. In her way she was trying to say that it's gonna be okay.
Tigger is very special to us, she is a very loving cat who loves to make sure that the human members of her family are happy. We treat Tigger as a member of our family and not just a pet cat.
