    :(Today is a sad day for me. A year ago today the knocking stopped. I got Tigger when he was 10 months old. His owner was moving and didn't want to take him with her. I kept him in for a few days before letting him out. One afternoon there was a knock at the door. It was Tigger. He'd learned to stand on his back legs and flick the letterbox with his paw, something that he did right till a couple of days before he passed away. He died in his sleep aged 18.
    He is gone now but not forgotten. In a way he is still with me, In my heart and in my memory.
    RIP Tigger.

    Thanks. I have had cats all my life ( I have 4 now ). Tigger was one of the best. I sometimes thought that he was more human than some humans I know.

    So sorry, at least he went peacefully. It's the things we get used to that we take for granted until they are gone and that's when we really notice them and miss them. Sounds like he was a bit of a character though :) He may be gone but his spirit lives on in your heart.

    I'm sure he did. He didn't usually go to far from the house. I almost always knew where he was. He would off occasionally but I knew where to find. He had little friend that he visited. There he would be, in her owners garden rolling around and generally showing off.

    Tigger will always have his place in your heart and in your memories of him. He sounds a lovely boy and clever too. My first Siamese learned the same trick :thumbsup:
    RIP Tigger

    RIP Tigger.
    He sounds like he was quite a character. One of my cats knocks on the door and visitors are astonished when one of gets up and says that'll be the cat.

    Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread. You kind thoughts are much appreciated. Tigger will always be with us as long I have my memories of him, and that will be a very long time.
