Tigger, was abandoned by his owner at a local veterinary surgery when he was 20-years-old. Tigger was so confused and sad, he couldn’t understand why his human decided to give up on him. They kept him safe at the vet for months but he needed a real home again.
Adriene Nicole read Tigger’s story on Facebook and decided to be Tigger’s hero so she adopted him!
“Tigger was skinny, matted to the skin and drinking up to a gallon of water a day,” Nicole wrote on Tigger’s Facebook page. Tigger was also suffering from kidney failure, and he had a golf ball-sized tumor on his body. With the help of a vet, with good medication and a proper diet, Tigger began to gain weight.
On November 19th, Tigger turned 22! His family celebrated his birthday.
“We can’t believe we have gotten the chance to spend another birthday with our old man. He’s such an amazingly sweet, hilarious, and loving soul.”
“He’s one of the best decisions we have ever made.” said Tigger’s mom.
His mom and dad created a bucket list for him and have crossed quite a few adventures off the list. His favorite was the trip they took to the beach.
Tigger is now a happy cat who loves to cuddle, to nap on his human’s shoulder, to hold on to mom during tv time!
