It’s time to meet my two adorable cats Tigger and Yuna. When I went to animal shelter a few years ago my mom, my brother and I saw these two together in the same cage. Actually, it was my brother’s idea to not separate them as he thought that it was so cute to find a matching a set of cats. In fact, it was my brother who also said if we got both of these cats together then they would keep each other company. I thought it was sweet how my brother was thoughtful about keeping them together like a family. When it came down to paying for the two cats, me and my brother decided to split the bill. I actually paid for Yuna and my brother paid for Tigger. Oh yes, there is one more unique thing you should know about both of my cats, they each have an extra toe on their front paws :Yup, that means they have 6 toes each on the front paws. When you look closely their front paws are shaped like little mittens. It makes them even more cute because we didnt know that they had extra toes until they both came home to us. It just makes them the perfect pair together. 🙂
Let’s meet my cats. First up, we have Tigger. Tigger is everyone’s cat. He practically loves attention from anyone so when he sees people coming into the house he will come greet you and try to ask you to pet him or give him a hug. He loves to be picked up, and loves to be the center of attention. If there is one thing about him that stands out , he tends to want to be the King of the household. Not that my family lets him of course lol but he will keep trying no matter what and if he doesn’t get his way then he tends to be a big baby and cries for attention. As old as he is now , I thought he would have outgrown the need for attention but nope he is one cat that needs it on a daily basis. He will get in his moods if he doesn’t get his loving and I rather give him some love and hugs to keep his spirits up.
Tigger is also the most curious cat I have ever met. He gets into everything and it drives me batty when he does this…lol! If you have something new in the house even a bag of groceries he will stand there and sniff and get into the bag of groceries to see what is in there. Have a package to open from the post office? Tigger will stand right in front of the package and meow loudly saying open it please and then he starts wanting to go into the bx to see what it is unless you bring it out for him to see. He is like a kid that that needs to see everything right then and there…lol
What I love most about him is the fact he is like a big teddy bear. I can cuddle him in bed and he will snuggle up to me instantly 🙂 When it comes to his instincts, I would say he is pretty good about instinctively knowing about people’s feelings right off the bat and knows when to come to that person to give them comfort. If you’re crying he jumps right up to you and brushes up your face trying to wipe the tears away. I love that about Tigger because he really does heal my heart and soul when he shows such kindness to me. But he does this to everyone that loves, I really love how he is a good heart all the way around.
I named Yuna after playing Final Fantasy 10. I was always concerned about her health. Back then, they wanted to put her to sleep because she was still underweight and at that time the shelter had the nerve to ask me to give her up (even though I have already paid for her ) and pick another cat! I pretty much told them off at that time and said I didn’t want another cat and it would make me more sad if they did put her to sleep when she was still a kitten. Needless to say that I checked in every week to check on her process and it took an extra month of waiting before she could get home to us but it sure was worth the wait.
Yuna is very independent and her personality is very opposite of Tigger. She doesn’t come up to greet people right away. In fact, she tends to be very hidden when people come to the house. If she does come and greet you the first time its considered a rare opportunity because it means she is in approval of what she sees. She isn’t one that likes hugs either but she loves to be petted. Yuna tends to make sure she is in a safe place before she gets affectionate. On the upside, Yuna is actually very smart. It’s easily to teach her a lot of things. I can get all firm the first two times about something and she gets it. She understands what is going on and what she is not allow to do. For example, since both of my cats are allowed to go outside, Yuna is the first cat to come back in the house. As soon as it gets dark, she comes home and stays home. She doesn’t go anywhere far other than hang out in the backyard. Yuna tends to balance out Tigger in a way. She is the more calm and gentle cat while Tigger is more the hyper and energized kitty. One thing that I love about Yuna is the fact that she has a deep love for Tigger. For example, if Tigger is late in coming home, I can go up to Yuna and ask her where is your brother? Where is Tigger? She will then go out and call him to come back home. Yes, Tigger does come home when Yuna is calling for him.
Both of my cats are 8 years old now! I love them and I love how I have matching set of kitties. They will be back in November for another visit so I will be taking pictures more pictures of them. 🙂
