One-year-old Tigger recently found himself all alone in a rented flat after the previous tenants moved out and locked up, leaving him trapped inside. Luckily, the tabby and white male was discovered by the landlord a few days later, who immediately called us for help.
Animal Welfare Officer (AWO), Tania Mazzoni, went straight out to rescue Tigger and found him hiding inside a sofa cushion where he’d curled up for some warmth and comfort.
Tania had to tear into the sofa to free Tigger and was relieved to see that he did not appear to be hurt. He hadn’t seemed to suffer any undue harm from his ordeal. As soon as Tania had safely removed him from his hiding place she drove him back to our Home, where we conducted a full intake exam to make sure he was okay.
Aside from being a little hungry and nervous, Tigger showed himself to be a sweet and curious cat, and so we settled him down in our Cattery with some food and blankets to rest and recover. We also made sure he was vaccinated, neutered and microchipped, and up to date with his flea and worming treatment.
Although our AWO’s routinely follow procedures to try and trace an owner when bringing animals into our care, this is very often outside of our remit and sadly not possible in all cases.
Thankfully, Tigger soon made himself at home and was extremely friendly with our staff, who knew that it wouldn’t be long before somebody fell in love with him.
Sure enough, he attracted interest as soon as we placed him up for adoption, and shortly afterwards we were thrilled to match him with a brand new family.
Tigger is now happily settled into his forever home, and has been renamed Jasper. His new owner told us that he’s a bundle of fun and still loves to climb and hide, and we all wish him all the very best as he bounces around and enjoys lots of cuddles!
Although Tigger’s story has a happy ending, we know that lots of cats and dogs all across the UK are still looking for their forever homes. If you are interested in adopting a pet, or if you’re struggling to cope with an existing animal, please get in touch with us or your local rescue and rehoming centre to see how we can help.
