Nov. 19, 2008 - Grattitude Post Challenge Day 18

Today I am thankful for my cat Tigger.

She is a good kitty and she keeps me company at night when Greg is at work. She is not the most exciting cat, but she still keeps me entertained and smiling daily.

Tigger started out as my niece's cat before she became mine. About 4 or 5 years ago my sister's family decided to sell the home they were living in and buy a new home. Their new home was still under construction when they purchased it. While it was being built they moved into their travel trailer for several long months. Not having any room to keep pets they asked if I would take in Tigger and her sister Holly until their home was done. Once the home was built they decided that the two cats had become so used to living at our home that they didn't want to uproot them again.

I was secretly so thankful. I've always been a cat person and prior to taking in Tigger and Holly I was missing having a furry friend around.

Unfortunately a few years ago Holly had a tragic accident and had to be put to sleep, but Tigger remains the head of the household, or so she thinks.

She is the most docile and lazy cat I have ever owned, but that is just fine with me. She doesn't jump on furniture or counters, she doesn't like to play with cat toys. She only likes to be pet or cuddled on her terms. Her favorite activity is sleeping, with eating being a close second.

She may not be the most exciting cat in the World, but I love her anyway and I'm so thankful that my niece allowed me to keep her permanently.
