A 21-year-old senior cat was abandoned by his owner at a local veterinary hospital after discovering that the poor kitty has a major illness. The adorable old fella named Tigger appeared sad and confused when he realized that his favorite person is no longer around.
Meet Tigger the senior cat!
Fortunately for this cat, an angel came along and promised to take care of him and give him a chance to be a part of a loving family again.
“When my boyfriend and I heard about his story, we made a split second decision to adopt him. We were already considering finding a friend for our 6 yr old cat, Stuart, and we thought..”why not Tigger?!”
Andriene Nicole saw Tigger’s story on the Canton Neighbors page and the poor cat immediately captured her heart. The kind-hearted person knew right away that she will be the perfect person to give Tigger all the love that he needs.
Sadly, just when everything appeared to perfect for Tigger, the doctors discovered that the old cat had a golf ball-sized tumor and a kidney failure. However, that did not stop Nicole from giving Tigger the love and affection he needed.
“Though he has kidney failure and we found a tumor, he kicks it like a 12 yr old. We decided to create a bucket list full of random adventures [for Tigger],” Nicole wrote on her Facebook page.
“Though it might not be much to others, all the little trips outside are a blast for him because he loves to be outdoors…the beach being his favorite so far.”
“The most important part is that Tigger’s story just shows how amazing it is to adopt a geriatric pet and give them the best remaining days! He has forever changed our hearts and will hopefully change the hearts of others when it comes to adopting older pets!”

This cat became a local celebrity in Baltimore. Everybody loves him!
Tigger lived for another couple of years before passing away in March this year. He died peacefully surrounded by the people who showed him what true love really means.
