3. I've been following his story too.

I'm glad that he found some love and comfort in his last days.

My wife and I have been rescuing and been involved with cat rescue for over 30 years.

Tiger Tim looks like a cat we had named Jeff. He had a twin brother named Mutt. It seemed (literally) that they were joined at the hip.

About 7 years ago Jeff got sick and died. Mutt kind of...just...started fading away. 2 months later he passed and the only thing that we, including the vet, could figure out is that he was lonely. They were 6 years old.

In a house that had 15 other cats, he was lonely.

Sorry about the rambling.

We are still somewhat active with rescues but not as much due to health issues.

At least, it seems to me, that in the past 10-15 years that cat rescues have been getting more attention and funding although it will never be enough.

This is a rescue that we like and support here in western Ohio. https://www.facebook.com/pages/His-Hands-Extended-Sanctuary/189599171056817?fref=ts
