Resident of the Month:
Tigger is a barn cat’s barn cat! It took me and the girls several years to convince Tara to get a cat. She would tell us that “cats will scratch your eyes out!”. Eventually we wore her down and brought Tigger home from the local animal shelter. Because of Tigger’s sweetness, we now have 4 rescue cats and Tara has come dangerously close to becoming the crazy cat lady! Anyone who has visited our farm has probably met Tigger as she greets everyone she sees. She will nuzzle with anyone she can and will also get between our volunteers and the tasks they are trying to accomplish. Tigger does not accept being ignored and will continue to rub on you until you acknowledge her. I will sometimes find her sleeping on a hay bale or lounging in the barnyard amongst her barnyard friends. In the predawn hours when I am giving the residents their breakfast, she will often suddenly appear and follow me around and greet everyone with me. On more than one occasion, young children visiting the farm will tell us Tigger is their favorite animal! I am allergic to cats and try to avoid having too much contact with all of ours, unfortunately I can never refuse Tigger some affection. I love everything about her and honestly believe she is special. For these reasons, and because she did not scratch anyone’s eyes out, she is our Resident of the Month!
