Buckets of tears were shed here over the weekend, as Mr. Fox and I said goodbye to Tiger the Cat. Tiger — an affable and extremely chatty female tabby — was 18 years old. She was a cherished member of our family for 17 years. We will never forget her.
Tiger was my constant companion on YouTube. There, for the past two years, she offered frequent — and often quite loud — commentary during cooking segments at “Kevin Lee Jacobs Delicious Living.” I’ll do my best to hold back tears while filming today’s recipe. The kitchen just isn’t the same without Tiger there, watching my every move.
She was popular on Twitter, too. The photo above was tweeted out as “Tiger relaxes after giving a note-perfect performance of Beethoven’s sonata ‘Appassionata’.”
We adopted Tiger and another cat, Camille, in 2004. Here they are, in 2016, cuddling together in the library. Camille is still with us. She misses Tiger as much as Fox and I do.
Tiger quickly accepted Baby Binky, the near-dead kitten I rescued a year ago. Binky and Tiger enjoyed breakfast together every morning.
Alrighty then. I’m going to have another good cry. See you soon. xKevin
