My Best Friend, Tigger...

This is Tigger...She is 19 years old...

Can you believe it??

She still looks like a kitten...
Me & Tigger were having a little chat the
other day & she was saying that she is starting
to get really tired all the time...

She looks like she is losing weight, too...
I told her that I know she doesn't feel well
sometimes, but that's part of getting older...

I told her to just look at Mom...She is
slowing down, too... Tigger told me she will keep me posted as to how she is feeling...

But right now she just wants to go have
lunch & then take a nap...

I guess it's tough to get old...

She looks great for her age! My cat is also 19 years old, and he sleeps a lot, and has lost weight (in his prime he was 28 lbs - now he's 16), but he says 19 isn't too bad, and better than the alternative. Keep her spirits up and play with her, and see if that helps her. (But when she wants to nap, let her nap - my cat gets cranky if I wake him up!) *kissey face* - Fiona

Tigger does look very well for being 19 years of age. Keep a close eye on him. sorry I have been mia, but I am all caught up now.

I hope she isn't really a vampire kittie who will live forever. She looks pretty spry for an old gal.

My Old Girl naps a lot, and she is old. Come to think of it, though, I nap a lot, too! BOL!

How lovely to meet Tigger! That is a good age for a cat although they do often live into their twenties! We had a cat called Mouschi, BB (before bassets) she lived for around 22 years - she came from a cat rescue so we were never sure of her exact age.
Tigger enjoy your naps and take life as it comes.
love

Wow.. Tigger looks great for her age!
I think our mom will be able to relate to the 'getting old' part.. LOL!!

Hi Abby!
Tigger is such a cute friend! She definitely doesn't look like she is 19! Do you think she might share her anti aging secrets with me? I am only 2 and a half and I am already turning gray!

Yes, you're right - Tigger looks too young to be a 19 year old cat. Take good care of sweet Tigger!
