In 2004 when I moved out on my own I knew that I wanted a cat. Growing up in a house with 3 cats, I felt the cat-less void right away so I went to the local Humane Society with the decision that I wanted a cat older than a year old (since they are usually over looked in favor of a kitten) and that I would let the cat pick me. Immediately This 2 and a half year old tabby meowed up a storm when I walked by and stuck his paw out for me. I looked at many cats but this one was begging for me to give him a good home. After I took him out of his cage I couldn't say no to him and he came home with me. He has been the best, well-behaved, loving, and vocal cat I could have asked for. He is 7 years old now and has had a few close calls with infections and blockages, but I would not trade him for the world! I have 3 cats now, all very different in age and all a different type of rescue, but Tiger will always be all I wished a cat to be.
