Oct 22, 2013 – Cat of the Week – Ziggy (Tiger)
On Saturday, April 12, TCWR went to Fairview, Missouri, to rescue two adult tigers, Ziggy, a 7 year old male, and Tigger, a 9 year old female. The couple had owned the cats since they were cubs. Both tigers were purchased from the same private breeder for $500 each. Though tigers do not make pets, Ziggy and Tigger were well cared for by their previous owners. Their cage was a good size with a covered barn area for shelter, and the cats were secluded on their property. They both seem healthy and definitely well fed. The previous owners were moving and needed a new home for the tigers.
