Tigger


Tigger is on the left, giving sage advice to Trixie when she was just a kitten.  Tigger is the oldest cat at Top Cat Rules and the one least likely to get into mischief.  I get the feeling that when Pyewacket starts tearing around the house, Tigger finds a good out-of-the-way spot and just watches.

                                   There is a smart old cat named Tigger.
                                   Her Fount of Wisdom just gets bigger and bigger.
                                           She has no wish to rule,
                                           But she likes to school
                                   The younger cats in the Wisdom of Tigger.

Tigger owns Giancarlo - he is HER boy. She got him when he was 11, she picked him out when he came to see the cats at the Pound.

Giancarlo is SO impressed with your limerick skills and with the post.

You are so right, Tigger is the real top cat here. But she doesn't duke it out like the two other cats.

And they do listen to her. She is the most intelligent.

Your autobiographies are always spot on. We love to read them.

It become harder to tear around the house as one becomes older, and easier to dispense kitty wisdom. Tigger is doing a good job.

Thank you Karen Jo for your kind words. We are taking turns watching after mommy. She's doing pretty well, and we're really glad she's got a holiday break from work so we can work our magic on her sadness.

We like your limericks - they are fun!

We love your limericks! Especially after Mama explained what they were and told us that she is a big fan of them. Tigger does look very regal and wise. (Especially standing next to little Trixie ^^).

Thank you so much for coming to visit our new blog! We're glad to have found a new friend and will visit you often.

Hugs,
Nermal, Nico, Virgil, and Maggie <3
