I am experimenting with my posts, adding pictures, links etc. I am so new to this!
I have decided to call this Post “Tigger Turns 13” . You have probably figured by now I have a cat… I adopted him 12 1/2 years ago from the SPCA at the age of 5 months, and recently he turned 13. You’ve probably also guessed his name is Tigger. It was a longshot, but I just knew you would figure it out.
Tigger has lived in 4 provinces in Canada, Alberta, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. He was abandoned on the side of the highway in Alberta, before being bought to a local SPCA. I did some volunteer work there, and the first time I picked Tigger up, he wouldn’t let go. I really had no choice but to adopt,,, he seriously wouldn’t let go of me.
A pet is instant stress relief! Great company and animals seem to be able to read your mood, and will lift your spirit automatically. Did you know people who own pets live longer? I believe it… you can’t stay stressed in the company of a pet.
If you are considering adopting an animal, they will become part of your family. I urge you to do your research before adopting or buying an animal. Make sure the animal fits your lifestyle, as Tigger does mine. I will have a dog once I retire, but living out side the city, and being gone about 11 hours at a time, just wouldn’t be fair to a dog at this point in my life. Remember, if you are considering adopting or buying, make the decision for the long haul. They could be part of your family for a long time, and that time will include vet bills including vaccinations, getting spade and getting sick. It’s all a part of it.
But the richness Tigger brings to my life. I wish that richness on each and everyone of you.
Have a great day
Darlene and Tigger
