Newbie from South Florida

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Relatively new cat owner here...We've had Miss Tigger about 18 months. We've always owned birds before. A friend of ours found Miss Tigger and her 5 kittens living in the wild, so she took them all in, got Tigger fixed and adopted all the kittens, but no one wanted Tigger!
I had always loved cats, but had allergies, so we figured, we would take her in and she would just be an outdoor cat....
...Well, as we've had her a while, she is spending more and more time inside, and my allergies seem to be going away. She is amazingly affectionate with everyone, which is amazing, since she was a stray.
She usually sleeps in the covered, screened in patio at night, unless the weather gets to cool, or with hurricanes.
She is a Siamese mix with blue eyes, and really unusual striping down her back (hense her name). All in all, we've been very happy with our addition, and she is bothering the birds less.

Hello to you, Miami Spartan, and a big hearty welcome to you and to Miss Tigger! May you both feel at home with us and enjoy your stay! We're a friendly crowd wherein the felines probably far outnumber the humans, which of course is the way it probably should be!! (Cats Rule--after all! )

Very glad to meet you and it's wonderful that your allergies are so much better--see how much good a cat can do you?!

Hi from me and my Amber!

Hello from one Floridian to another, and welcome to the site!
I am so glad that you and Miss Tigger could join us. I think it's great that you welcomed Miss Tigger into your home despite your allergies, and it's even better that they seem to be improving. I think it was all meant to be

We love pictures around here, and would really enjoy seeing a pic of Miss Tigger in the Fur Pics forum

If you need any help finding your way around please click on my username and send myself, or any other mentor, a pm and we will be glad to help in any way we can.
