Tigger is #92

Hi, it's me, Austin Towers :)

Lookee here!


No, that's not why I'm here, though it is a very bad habit. I put it down to a nervous condition which I've had for nearly six years. Coincidentally, it started when I first moved in here! 

Anyway, the reason for my post is it appears that my old mucker Tigger is member #92 in the Tabby Cat Club first one hundred. So we are all going YAY! and HURRAH! that he made the cut.


  and here is his original badge which I believe I've shared before:


Personally, I don't think he takes a good photo - very much like The Staff who looks a bit like a sour faced old boot from the 1930's who's spent her whole life perfecting the disapproving pucker in front of an old cracked mirror, which wasn't cracked when she first glanced at it!

So I think Tigger is puckering a bit. What do you think? Yep! Definitely a pucker there. He'll regret it later in life when his whiskers get wrinkles.

I am digressing! What I actually came here to say is that there is a BIG party over at the Tabby Cat Club to celebrate their first 100 members, so pop on over and join the festivities …. oh and see if you can recognise Tigger amongst the throng in the header shot!

Tigger is Austin's 'old mucker'.
He is a bit of a sucker.
But when he does squint,
His face goes like flint
And his mouth has a definite pucker!




old mucker - (Brit, archaic) pal or friend 
(yes, really!)

  3. Concats to the Tabby Cat Club getting their first 100 members.
    Do you crunch your nails when you bite them? I do and it makes mum cringe. She says it's nearly as bad as hearing someone crunch on celery!

  8. Frankly Austin (or is it Austinly Frank) I'm a bit chafed that I can't be in the tabby club. I don't even know where the Tuxedo Hideout is. HHGutt has the stripes that should get us in.

  25. Congratulations to Tigger!
    I'll go and see if I can pick him out, but I'm not hopeful. Even though I live with a tabby cat, I find them difficult to tell apart unless I can sniff them!

    Stop biting those nails!
