She's right back where she started, and we're hoping to change that.

Tigger, this beautiful tiger cat was adopted from the SPCA as a kitten. And due to no fault of her own, after almost a decade in a home, has been brought back to the SPCA of Hancock County.

"Tigger has the classic old lady face, tiger striped lips with white accentuating her face. She enjoys watching people come in and out of the shelter, wishing she would be the next one to get adopted. "

SPCA Medical Tech, Annie Chalmers, says Tigger is a special cat indeed.

"Tigger is a nine-year-old cat who was surrendered due to housing circumstances with her owners. Tigger was adopted from the SPCA as a kitten and was unfortunately returned just a month ago. She is a very sweet old lady who loves company and being held."

Chalmers says Tigger's ok with other cats but really deserved to be your one-and-only at this point in her life.

"Tigger coexists with cats here at the shelter, but we suspect she would prefer to be the only cat in her home. She's a laid-back cat who loves respectful attention from anyone who will give it. She loves to get treats and even lets out a little spunk when she gets some catnip. This ol’ girl needs a cozy lap to keep heated during these upcoming cold months."
