Woman Saves 21 Year Old Cat But the News Wasn’t All Good

Tigger the cat is 21 years old. But just months ago, he was abandoned at a local vet. And then, a kind young woman came to offer him a forever loving home. Now she is on a mission to help make his last years his best years.

Adriene Buisch (Nicole), a marketing coordinator at Charm City Veterinary Hospital, had been looking for a companion for her 6-year-old cat. It wasn’t long after, she stumbled upon Tigger’s story in a post shared on the Canton Neighbors Facebook page and decided she would bring him home that night.

When Buisch adopted Tigger, he was a bit underweight and his fur was matted. With some special diet, help and a lot of love, Tigger put on a few pounds and his fur soon grew back nicely.

However, Buisch noticed that Tigger’s health was deteriorating. The vets found out that his kidneys were failing and he had a golf ball-sized tumor.

Buisch is determined to make his last days his best!
She shared Tigger’s update: “Though he is in kidney failure and we found a tumor, he kicks it like a 12 yr old. So we created a bucket list for our old man Tigger…we’ve crossed a few off the list, but this has been his favorite.

Thanksgiving weekend we took him to the beach and he loved it! Literally sunbathed in the sand and walks along the water all afternoon. Needless to say he made a lot of friends as people stopped to pet him and hear his story.”

“I promise you, the best is yet to come.”
