A couple of folk have mentioned that they don't know who Tigger is or much about him, so I thought I would give a brief resumé of his story.
Just a few months after Austin came to us, he started going outside and it wasn't very long before he brought this little tabby home. One day I heard Austin scratching at the door and when I opened it there was my tuxie with the tabby both looking up at me and they were obviously about the same age and the tabby obviously had Austin's permission to come in! Since that day they have been great pals .. sort of!
We (eventually) called him Tigger and he made himself right at home!
I first blogged about this in May 2008, but you can read here about how their relationship developed. It was obvious he was not a stray. Someone wanted this kitty! However, despite asking questions around the neighbourhood, we have not discovered to this day who he belongs to! He just turns up (not every day, but most!) and eats some food and often just goes out again, but sometimes he wants to hang around.
Sometimes they have a face off! (Actually they are about to hug!)
Sometimes they just chill (not that often!)
But mainly Tigger just likes to eat!
As you can see he makes himself right at home and has grown into a fine (huge!) kitty
AND he's quite happy on Austin's pink blanket!!!
They have known each other well over four years now and they get up to all sorts of mischief! We have to be careful though, as Austin is a bit spiky at the best of times and he needs to be sure that everyone knows who is the king of this castle!
