TIGGER – A1040586
***GONE 06/29/15 ***TIGGER was brought into the ACC because of ‘cost’. Did the owner know that bringing TIGGER in would cost him his life-TIGGER is 4 years old and has been loved and well cared for. He’s played with children and enjoyed being part of a family. He was friendly but scared to death when brought into ACC-who wouldn’t be, with all the noise and confusion after having lived in a home! TIGGER needs you very much. This is a cat who up until very recently was playing with people and being petted and purring happily. In a moment his world changed-and now, TIGGER needs you to help him have a life again-a family again. But TIGGER is so frightened and behaving as a frightened cat will in a small cage with noise and things he doesn’t know-he’s petrified. Please save TIGGER! He really needs you. This is the kind of cat who once he’s in a home again will remember love, and kindness. Please give this lovely sand colored guy a chance.

As per previous owner, Tigger is friendly and plays well with small children and adults. He has not been around other cats or dogs so we do not know his behavior around other animals.
