A Short One from Doug Draper, NAL publisher
Posted February 4th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
If been following my commentary on Niagara At Large for a while you may know that I’m a complete sucker for cats, especially ones as regal as this guy.
I’m talking about one of Niagara, Ontario’s most majestic tabbies – a feline known an ever growing fan base out there as Tigger, who turns eight this Saturday, February 6th with a birthday party at the store where he serves as ambassador and loving friend to those who work there.
You are invited to join in celebrating Tigger’s birthday on this February 6th between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Pet Valu Thorold store in the Niagara, Ontario community of Thorold at its 9 Pine Street North location in the same plaza that includes a Foodland grocery store outlet.
The celebrations will include games, prizes, cupcakes and the reason, other than my fondness for cats and Tigger in particular, an opportunity to donate to the fine animal care and advocacy work of the Animal Assistance Society of Niagara.
This is one of Tigger’s favourite charities because, as the first installment of his memoirs go, he was originally found as a stray in Niagara Falls. He was rescued by The Animal Assistance Society of Niagara and brought to the Pet Valu in Thorold for adoption.
The staff fell in love with him and ended up adopting him as a store cat.
If it wasn’t for the Animal Assistance Society, Tigger and many other cats would not have the opportunity to live the kind of life they deserve.

Meanwhile, Tiggers “humans,” he calls them, have been working for days to get ready for this edition of his annual birthday bash.
So come in and join the celebration and consider making a donation to a very good cause.
