Youngest of the six cats, Tiger is still with us. She came to us in the dead of winter, another stray in need of a home. Although she loves to be petted, she does not like to be held and is wary of strangers. During the summer she lives outside even on the hottest days, but when cold weather sets in she retreats indoors and spends most of her time curled up on a blanket. She’s getting old, occasionally limps with arthritis but still holds her own among her newer housemates, sometimes chasing one young tomcat around the house just to show him who’s boss.
