Woman Adopts 21 Year Old Cat To Give Him Best Remaining Days

At the sunset of his life, 21-year-old cat Tigger was abandoned by his human at a local veterinary surgery.

Sad and confused, he couldn’t understand why.
But then Adriene Nicole saw his story on the Canton Neighbors page and decided to take him home.

She wanted to give him the love he needed.

Though he has kidney failure and we found a tumor, he kicks it like a 12 yr old. We decided to create a bucket list full of random adventures for him

The most important part is that Tigger’s story just shows how amazing it is to adopt a geriatric pet and give them the best remaining days!

He has forever changed our hearts and will hopefully change the hearts of others when it comes to adopting older pets!

  1. I absolutely love this heartwarming story. What a beautiful cat and a beautiful, kind, and very thoughtful and loving woman. Bless you both and enjoy your bucket list!

    1. So thankful to the women who adopted Tigger, my favorite cat lived til 21. This women is special, I hope he lives in happiness 😊

  2. I took on a terminally ill cat too. Name, Tigger too. Vet said he should be put down but I decided to give him best time I could. Had him 2 years before he crossed the rainbow Bridge. Miss him still, would do it again!

  3. Thank you so much for loving him. His former owners are heartless and didn’t deserve a wonderful cat like Tigger. Hope he has a terrific and fun filled life. You will be rewarded by him in so many ways. Again, thank you.

  4. To you, who saw a lonely soul,
    The heart you have within you will be filled to capacity always. There is nothing more sustaining than loving an abandoned animal. Cats, especially do not forget kindness. They will see you as they live out their days and hold you in their heart as they pass from this world. You did good.

  5. We should thank the Universe for her generosity of spirit to take on this 21 year old cat. I hope she does make his last days happy.

  6. Reminds me of my ginger tom Jonesy. He came to me as an adoptee from a friend who couldn’t keep him but loved him dearly. He stayed with me for 26 years and was always my best buddy, cuddled in at night, sang in the morning and purred like a diesel train.
    I never ignore the older cats when looking for adoptions as they are the most worthy and i am blessed to be able to provide for them. Bless you for providing this for Tigger.

  7. Older pets are the best. They are so appreciative and know that they are being given a second chance by someone who will really give them the love the deserve. It’s the most rewarding experience. The bond that forms is so deep and heartfelt. An experience everyone should know.

    1. I love stories like this. I cried with happiness. Thank you for taking in this adorable senior cat. We are blessed to have such loving Souls around like you. I wish I could adopt 10 older cats. I have two cats one adopted me as a stray and I love them both the same my life is so much better with them in it. God bless all you cat lovers out there. Keep up the good work.

  8. Thankyou for saving kittys 😺 life ❤ 💖 he looks like a young kitty sending ❤ love and cuddles from newzealand

  9. What a heart-warming story. I cried when I read it. Thank goodness there are such wonderful and kind people in the world. If all homeless animals could be as lucky, what a better world it would be. Having an animal to love and care for, and having that love returned back to you is life changing. Thank you for such a beautiful story!

  10. I am getting too emotional watching this. We had a white stray, we found her in our garage, we had already 3 others, well, she got along with the others pretty good, she was a lively one and became over 22 years old and died in my arms. We miss you, Kushel

  11. Love older cats. I have noticed cats get “sentimental” and more affectionate when they get about 10 years old. I have loved the time with my cats in their later years. I would be glad to adopt an older cat… They are lover of laps and snuggles and are so grateful for time close to their owners. They love to watch birds but no longer chase them as they get old ..Lots of positive things!!

    Love love this story .Our older pets need extra love and care.Thank u for loving him and giving him the best life.

  13. This is an old post, but a very heartwarming story! Tigger passed away 2-3yrs ago 🙁 Very inspirational story about adopting senior pets and how much love they have to give too!

  14. Breaks my heart to think someone could abandon a sweet boy like that after 21 years. I had a yellow tabby named Jackpot who passed away at the age of 21. He lived for years with kidney failure and went completely blind. But he was my sweet baby! He has been gone for 4 years now and I still miss him terribly. This is an awesome story. Thanks for sharing!

  15. We adopted an 18 1/2 year old who was dropped at our local shelter by her owner who wanted her euthanized because she was old and his health was failing. We adopted her as we felt she would live our her life there unadopted due to her age aa it is a no kill shelter. Tootsie is now 22, in perfect health and has stolen our hearts. Best decision we’ve ever made.
    Adopt Seniors!! You’ll never regret it.

  16. I am in all for you to do something so wonderful. You have an amazing heart. I wish you both a very warm and long life together. Keep me up to date on his and your futures.
