Thursday's Purrs: Tiger

"Um. Hi ..."
 *waves paw timidly*

"My name is Tiger. I was found as a stray by a nice person who lived in an apartment and couldn't keep me because her landlord wouldn't let her have any more cats.

She was very nice, though. And I ended up in this amazing place where I'm warm and fed. (okay, it's 104 out there today, so truthfully, where I'm cool and comfy!)"

 "One of the adoption counselors took a look inside my crib and mentioned, 'hey, that's a lot of pink for one ginger boy!' I don't mind. I'm comfortable enough in my mancatness not to let things like that bother me.

I hear stories the other cats here tell, tales about a Real Home, and a Human to love you. I'd sure like to experience that, I would.

I'm rather shy, with a bit of an introverted personality, but I do love to cuddle. And contrary to photographic evidence, I am not a jingle-ball hoarder. Really. I only have about ... twenty ... or so. (Oh look, Fluffy in the kennel across has a green stripey one. I wonder if I could snag that one from her....)

I'm also FIV positive, but really, they tell me that's no big thing. I just need to have regular checkups and stay indoors so I don't catch the neighbor cat's summer cold. My immune system's just a bit compromised, so I need to look out for such things!

Do you think you might be my Human? I'd love to see a Real Home someday. Want to test drive my purrs and headbutts?

I'll be waiting - I'm the handsome ginger boy in the pink kennel.


Tiger's available at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs.
