I checked the archives and realized it’s been five months since my last update on Tigger ~ Eat, Drink, and Be Hairy!

Well, our little guy is still with us ~ a full year after his diabetes diagnosis.  Yay!

Since January, we’ve been able to maintain his weight and energy level with frequent feedings.

We like big butts and we cannot lie . . .

Tigger also needs constant “watering,” letting us know he’s thirsty by crying in the middle of the kitchen (right next to his FULL water bowl) or by hanging around the (KEEP IT CLOSED!!!) toilet bowl.

My precious . . . my precious . . .

When he’s not eating, drinking, or sleeping, he helps us around the house.

Let me help you organize those photos . . . I’m an exceptional bookmark.

Oh, catching up on correspondence?  I’m a stellar paperweight.  See?

After his thrice-daily nap, he enjoys seeking out secret Hide-y Holes.

Or playing Tigger-in-the-Box.

Hey, let’s play “Put your hand across the threshold of my hideaway.”  C’mon.  I double dog dare ya!  Wait!  Where ya going?  Don’t be such a scare-dy cat!

In addition to his other fine feline attributes, Tigger excels at guarding treats against would-be intruders.

Mine!  Mine!  Mine!

When it’s not too hot or too cold or too rainy or too sunny, Tigger likes to hang out on the deck, but he refused to pose . . . he was too busy hunting lizards!

When I told Tigger that he would be the featured post today, he lifted one eye in my direction, “Fine.  But I don’t give interviews.  Or sign paw-tographs.”

He’s quite the fuzzy furry feline fella!

Aah . . . that’s better!
