This is Tiger asking nicely for a tummy rub. Tiger was a small feral kitty who decided to live in the hedge at Pumpkin's house. The Mom heard him crying and put out food for him, which he would come out to eat, but he darted back into the hedge whenever he saw anyone coming. At last he decided to trust the Mom and let her get close enough to catch him. She let him go again, because he had a lot of fleas and it was too late that night to bring him in for a bath. She caught him again on June 7, 2003 and brought him inside. He took his bath rather calmly, after only brief struggle, and has been part of the family ever since. Bebe was the first cat to welcome him and they have been the best of friends ever since. Tiger likes to play with toys and had a favorite stuffed rat which he played with until it became unrecognizable. One day it disappeared, never to be seen again. The Mom doesn't know what happened to it, but because Tiger liked to hide it in lots of different places, she suspects that one day he hid it in a wastepaper basket and it got thrown out. Tiger also likes to pull the towels down from the towel rack.
Tiger used to live in the hedge.
He felt the branches gave him an edge
On any of those
Who would nip his toes.
Mom finally tempted him from the hedge.
