    Mr Tyg has fought and lost his last battle this evening. He was only 5 years old.

    Goodnight, Gussie "Tygger" FinkNottle. You were a loving little boy who brought such happiness into our lives.

    Very sorry to see the sad news about Mr.Tyg. Such a young fellow but I am glad he spent his last years in a loving home with you.

    Thank you. He had a rotten start in life and was very nervous when he came to us, obviously from his previous experiences, but rapidly grew in confidence. We gave him three and a half years of playing in the sun, and he rewarded us with unconditional love.

    I'm so sorry to read this. I had seen your thread and was really hoping he would pull through with the injections.

    He was so lucky to have the time he had with you. RIP Mr Tyg x

    It was decided that he'd be Gussie FinkNottle, but his "holding name" at the rescue centre was Tiger, and as he bounced when he ran, Tygger was the obvious choice. Gussie FinkNottle was his Sunday name, though.

    Sorry for your loss, he was far to young to leave you.

    Run free little one.

    Thank you. It's the fact that he was so young that hurts most of all.

    So far I have given the open catfood and litter to my cat-owning neighbour, and tidied his toys into a heap on the hearthstone: I can't bear to put them away quite yet. Today I'll sort out the litter trays and put his bowls away.

    I've had cats all my life, loved them all and miss them all still, but there was something about my little tripod that was special.
