Default A TUFF Day In Tennessee Today!

For those of you who love your pets you will understand why today and for some days to follow they are going to be TUFF!
I make no bones about it! I like most animals more than I like a lot of people and especially pets! With a tear in my wife's and my eyes!
Today the family lost one of our family and best friends Tiger our cat. We found Tiger when he was all of 6" tall and was not even big enough to hardly eat normal food at a dump in Tennesse. He was the most beautiful tiger striped little kitten I had ever seen. And could set in my hand. But I justified taking him from the dump with intention to find him a home. So we loaded him into the truck. I went to the Burkesvlle, KY. IGA store on the way home to attempt to find him a good home. But no takers there! So off to the Shell Station at Cave City where I just knew I could find someone who would love such a beautiful little kitten. But no luck! As of today he now had been a part of our family for 18 1/2 years. He was part of the family. However three weeks ago he had a stroke and began to loose coordination in his back legs. Then in the past two weeks lost all control of his rear legs. Last week he became deaf and it was starting to effect his vision and he became unaware of where he was and scared. Yes, this morning we had to take our beloved pet, family memeber and friend to the vet for his last trip. We were blessed to have him in our family for the 18+ years and he will be missed! His spirit and shadows will fill the hallway for a long time to come. For some it is hard to believe that pets like Tiger can play such a large part in our life. "Tiger" God Bless You my Little Friend! And thanks for being in our life! Tiger passed at 10:50am this morning.

Danggit, you are making my eyes runny. We have two pound kitties that have been in the family for eight years come January, I do not look forward to the day they are not prowling our home.

Sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss...
18 is a long life, though, and your eulogy is a touching testament to the joy pets can bring to a loving family.

My boys don't understand why I won't pay much attention to their cats. We've lost so many cats to sickness, road hits, coyotes I just don't want to be close to them anymore. Very sorry for your loss.

Very sad to hear. At least he went "Across the Rainbow Bridge" with Dignity. You were a good family to him. GD bless.

You and your wife's lives are better because Tiger was in it and obviously Tiger's life was much better because of you and your wife. God bless you all.

So sorry for your family's loss 03.
Get your a$$ back to the dump. Though definitely not a cure, it will help.

Sorry for you loss. You are so lucky to have had Tiger in your life for so long. Cats can be a great comfort. Thank you for taking such loving care of Tiger.
