Tigger the Tubby!


I don't often feature Tigger … well this is Austin's blog!! But for those who don't know, he is our daily visitor and Austin's corpulent buddy.  I have never seen them cosy down together and they often scrap, but from the day Austin ushered him in through the back door five years ago, they have been the best of pals. Today Tigger - if I had known he was a keeper, I would have given him a more exotic name! - has made himself comfy on Austin's pink blankie after he'd partaken of Austin's lunch. In fact I am thinking that my tuxie boy is far more tolerant than I've given him credit for.

Tigger is a good natured puss, but for a big fellow he only has a teeny itsy bitsy meow! While Austin sounds like the entire string section, Tigger would be hard put to get a squeak out of a kazoo! 

Anyways, here's a very rare glimpse of Austin and Tigger giving each other a mancatly nose kiss!

Awww! Look at the tails!

  1. Oh I love that nose kiss. They really do like each other. And in that shot we can see the size difference! Is Tigger neutered?

  2. Austin, how nice that you have a buddy to hang out with. Tigger looks like a good guy. Unfortunately, we're not as friendly to other kitties that come around our house.

  6. Yes, Tigger needs a sturdy Welsh name befitting his stature. How about Cwnddwdfywdd the Large?

  10. Nice to meet you Tigger! Do you have another home, or are you a feral kitty?

  13. I absolutely loved seeing Tigger again and the nose kiss was so nice! Of course it was mancatly and quite the thing!

    Those two are all male and now, there are two manly mancats to guard Austin's mommy. Good show, Tigger.

  16. That's nice that Austin accepts so well Tigger ! My cats are less generous when it comes to visitors !
    He looks good, probably not homeless !

  18. Well Austin is a manly mancat of sizeable size indeed! Love his face and the fact that he feels comfortable enough at your home to hog your pink blankie Austin. You're a generous dude to allow that AND share your food with him as well! It must be nice to have someone to pal around with.

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  19. Beg: What humans do, to get two mancats to nosetap. What humans do, to get any cat to do anything that humans want.

  22. MacKenzie tried to sneak a possum in the house once. Mom put a stop to that. But how nice that Austin found an appropriate friend and brought him home to meet you. Kits aren't always that considerate. Have a great weekend.
