We began the day with the ritual of Five Head Kisses, followed my Chest Rubs and Intense Ear Bud Massage. These activities remind us to be thankful for Tiggy's fur which keeps her warm and keeps those tape lint roller manufacturers in business.
Then, we celebrated with the Offering of Gifts. We tried to select gifts which would meet Tiggy's needs as outlined by the SmartyKat toy people on the back of the package that the bouncey mouse offering came in.
Although Tiggy definitely got her full of Treat Emotion, Her Mighty Softness decided that her physical Rest Need was best met by laying on the plastic bag that her gifts came in, rather than the nice new environment we bought.
Thus, Tiggy reminds us that life is unpredictable and that even though we don't always lay on the soft purr pads we intend, we can be happy elsewhere. Especially in Stuy Town on a cat tree near a window looking at black squirrels.
Thank you, Tiggy Winkle for sharing your lessons, fur, softness, and incredible sweethood with us on your special day.
