No pet needs love more than 9-year-old Tiger. This adult male short-haired brown tabby came to the Friends for Life shelter years ago when he was just a kitten. Tiger was adopted, but then eight years later, he was found on the streets alone and injured. In fact, his injuries were so severe that his tail had to be amputated. His recovery went well, and now, more than a year later, Tiger is still at the downtown Gilbert adoption center waiting for a family to give him a home.
Tiger would welcome a lap to cuddle in, someone to brush and pet him, and more than anything, a family to offer him all the love they can give. The folks at Friends for Life say he is good with other cats when slowly introduced. Tiger is altered, FELV/FIV negative, microchipped, and current on all vaccinations.
