Who ever had a cat, this one know, that cats are great individuals.
While reading about Normon’s adventures I had reminded how it was with my cat, Tiger.
Normon is a with’s cat and you can read about his adventures here on booandlittleman blog: https://booandlittleman.wordpress.com/
Start from the beginning: https://booandlittleman.wordpress.com/2017/07/25/normon-in-disgrace/
Tiger’s story began in 2008 when I was working in gardening center. No one knows how he get there, does anyone dropped him, or does he was born as street cat. He didn’t behave like cat from the street, he was walking proudly near the people, sometimes even touching their legs, but never let people stroke him.
When I was watering the plants, he was jumping joyfully chasing the water. He probably didn’t know, that he is a cat and he not supposed to like playing with water.
I was the only person he jumped on knees and let to stroke him.
Day after day he was closer to me and following me at work all day long.
I had no idea about cats, but in this situation I’ve decided to give him home.
Choosing a name for him was quite easy, as he is striped as real tiger.
Only with this difference, he is grey with black stripes and white tie and socks.
At home, Tiger show himself as a nice, kind and joyful friendly cat. He wasn’t about to destroy anything at home, which very nice from his side and not so obvious.
There is one thing I’m not sure about, but he probably have something from a dog, because since his very first days, he act like a dog sometimes. For example he like aporting, he is waiting at the door when I’m coming back home, he’s following me to jump on my knees wherever I will seat or just lie down near to me.
Even today, when he is almost ten years old, he is full of energy and always ready to play, jumping etc.
When someone stranger is coming, he have to sniff this person first, then he decide does he let this person to stroke him or not. He is like a kindness detector.
Without a fireplace to lie down or mice to catch, he still seem to be a happy cat.
Have a nice day everybody.
