Tigger, a 21-year-old cat, was left to a nearby veterinary clinic by his owner at the end of his life. He couldn’t figure out why and felt sad and perplexed. Then, though, Adriene Nicole appeared. Nicole made the decision to bring him home after reading his story on the Canton Neighbors website. He needed love, and she wanted to give it to him.
Sadly, Nicole soon learned that Tigger had a tumor the size of a golf ball and renal failure. Nicole said, “Though he has renal failure and we detected a tumor, he kicks it like a 12-year-old, so it doesn’t stop him. We made a list of odd adventures for Tigger’s bucket list,” she said on Facebook.
“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,” she explained. “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!”

“Though it might not be much to others, all the little trips outside are a blast for him because he loves to be outdoors…”
His personal favorite place is the beach.
He has forever changed our hearts, and maybe he will do the same for others who are considering adopting older animals.
