Tiger was an FIV+ stray that showed up on our doorstep in January of 2008. He had lots of ups and downs, but was thriving for the most part until October 2013, when he was diagnosed with chronic renal failure. The vet kept him for 5 days on IV fluids, then sent him home. We did subcutaneous fluids twice a day, and did everything we could to bring him back but he never recovered. We don't know how old he was, but the vet estimated he was 7-9 when we took him in so he may have been 13-15 years old.|
God sent us an angel when Tiger came to our door. Tiger rescued me, he helped me through a difficult time in my life and it was an honor to take care of him for 5 years. I wish it could have been longer..
4/8/2013 It's been over 5 months since you were here Tiger. I still miss you so much. You were the best little boy, such a gentleman. Everyone loved you. Such a special boy. Thank you for coming into my life Tiger.
9/16/2014 It's been almost a year since you got so sick Tiger. I think about you all the time now. It was October 1st last year that you stayed at the vet's for a week then you came home. I tried so hard to save you but I couldn't. I couldn't let you suffer so I let you go on November 3rd. I wanted to let you know that I kept my promise to you. I'm so sorry that I couldn't do it sooner.
10/19/2014 Hi Sweet boy, I just wanted to let you know I've been missing you and thinking about you so much lately. It's almost a year since we helped you cross the Bridge. It was on November 3rd. That will be a very hard anniversary. One of the hardest days of my life. I wish you were still here and that everything was the way it was before.
11/3/2014 One year ago today we knew we couldn't ask you to stay any longer. I can't believe it's been a year. We miss you so much and we think about you every day.

11/2/2016 I can't believe it's been 3 years since you were here. I miss you so much and I think about you every day. Your Daddy misses you too. He keeps your photo on his desk at work.

11/3/2018 So hard to believe it's been 5 years since you crossed the Rainbow Bridge. This anniversary is harder for some reason. I've been thinking about you so much lately and it feels like it was just yesterday that you were here. You will always be my special boy. There will never be another one like you. Always in my heart. I will never forget you.
