Introducing Tiggy

Canberra BKHere's Jasmine with Tiggy. Tiggy is quite a senior kitty, like Gramma Trixie from the MeezerTails and Brendan from Caturday.

We're not sure how old Tiggy is because she was a stray, and so we don't know when she was born. Her story is that a long, long time ago, a cute little tabby used to visit Jasmine's family's yard. As Jasmine loved all cats, she used to say hello to this kitty, give her pats and occasionally a little snack. After a while it became apparent that the little grey tabby had been abandoned by a mean person, and what's worse, she'd never been 'fixed' and was now pregnant! Poor little girl!

Jasmine's family adopted this little grey stray and Jasmine named her Tigger after Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. When the time came for Tiggy to have her babies, the vet helped her and then later gave her an operation so there wouldn't be any more kittens.

Jasmine and Tiggy
Tiggy doesn't even have an official Gotcha Day because she used to visit on-and-off for a while before Jasmine realised she didn't have a furrever home of her own.

Mostly Tigger gets called 'Tiggy' now, or 'Angel', or a bunch of other cutesy names. Sometimes Jasmine used to call her "Little Myip Yip" because Tiggy's miaow's sounded more like "myip yip m'gah" than "miaow".

That was very nice of you, Miss Jasmine, to look out for Tiggy when she was in need. Tiggy, darling, you look amazing in that photograph as well. There's no way I would have ever mistaken you for being pregnant!

No, Tiggy isn't pregnant in this picture. This picture is from a few weeks ago. Tiggy is a very senior kitty now, far too senior to have baby kitties. Tiggy was pregnant many, many years ago. That's when she came to live with us. Tiggy was very young then, and so was I. I can't remember how old I was, but I might have still been in primary school! I think 'Mericky kitties call it 'elementary school'? Tiggy lives with my mum in Australia, so I only see her now when I'm back visiting. I mostly live in the United Catdom now.
