“When the cat you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.” – from the calendar in memory of Tigger.

He was one handsome cat – loaded from the tip of his note to the tip of his tail with charisma. Walk in to the Pet Valu store at the Pine Street Plaza in Thorold any time over the past many years and you sure couldn’t help but be impressed by a big caramel-colour tabby named Tigger.

Tigger became a celebrity for countless regular customers at the Pet Valu store over the years who often struck a regal pose on the desk near the cash register, waiting for a pet from his fans.

Sadly, Tigger died this past January, leaving condolences pouring in to his close friends at the store. Tributes also filled Tigger’s Facebook page, which is still up and running at https://www.facebook.com/Tigger-Thorold-Pet-Valu-318975011643143/  , and which you can read by scrolling down to a  January 14th, 2021 entry on the page.

All of these expression of love for this fabulous feline were enough to inspire the store’s staff to produce one more Tigger calendar for 2022, to follow up what, year’s ago, became a tradition of putting out Tigger calendars with all proceeds from their sale going to animal assistance group.

The 2022 calendar, in memory of Tigger, features many of the best photos taken of him over the years and is now available at the Pet Value store at 9 Pine Street North in Thorold (phone 905 227-9794 if you want make sure they aren’t all gone).

You can get your Tigger calendar for $20 cash, with, as always, all proceeds going to groups in Niagara that help animals. This year’s proceeds will go to the Animal Assistance Society of Niagara and to Niagara Falls Community Cats.

And just to let you know, Niagara At Large does not receive penny for promoting Tigger’s calendar. We do it out of love for Tigger and all felines in this world, and we do it out of support for groups in Niagara that volunteer their time to looking after animals in need of assistance.
