Happy Tigger Day!

It’s the 18th of April and Tigger’s now five
Five years ago he came into my life
I am thankful to Tig, my big Fluffypants boy
For bringing to me five great years full of joy

It’s my Tiggerversary. Five years ago, I brought home an eight-week old little orange fuzzball who brightened my days, and even brought somber old Gracie out of her doldrums for a while. I won the kitty lottery. Tig is happy, cheerful, affectionate, and goofy. He makes me laugh every day, usually several times a day. He chirrups and burbles and mews and mrowr-rowrs. My nighttime routine is often my standing in the bathroom, brushing my teeth, while Tigger runs into the bedroom, mrowr-rowring the entire way, waiting for me to finish because that’s the time of night when I get out the cat toys and the laser pointer. My upstairs bathroom is one of those enormous modern master bathrooms with two doors. So I see him in the mirror running past both doors. On nights when he’s feeling particularly happy, he runs back the other way, mrowr-rowring both times. It never fails to make me laugh.

A round of tuna for Tig and Gracie, and a day of smiles for me. Mr. Fluffybutt brought joy back into my life after I lost his predecessor, Tigger 2. Here’s to Maine Coons in general, and Tig 3.0 in specific. My goofball. So happy I got him.

And here’s the oldest picture I have of my boy. It was taken on the ride home from the shelter.

    Is that possible? Has it really been five years?

    I guess so… since that’s how long Matata has been gone. I remember Tig’s predecessor passing around the same time… a tough time for both of us.

    But now you’ve got Tig 3.0, and we have Levon. I like to imagine their buddies on the other side of the Bridge looking down and chuckling at their dopey antics. And may you and Tig enjoy many more happy years together.
