Cat Throws Temper Tantrum If His Dad Doesn’t Cuddle Him Before Work Every Day
Around ten years ago, Faith Linderman discovered Tigger behind a truck in the parking lot close to her former workplace. Tigger adapted to his new home admirably as soon as she made the decision to adopt him. Everyone in his family, notably Linderman’s father, captured his heart.
Tigger and his father have an extremely unique relationship. More than anything else, he adores cuddling with his father; in fact, it has become a crucial component of his morning routine.
Every morning, Tigger waits for his dad to get up and feed him breakfast. His dad then eats his own breakfast and finishes getting ready for work, and then settles into the couch around 7:30 a.m. to watch the news and cuddle with Tigger before he heads off to work.
“He gets at least a half hour of cuddle time in,” Linderman told “And if his brother Boots tries to get there first, Tig will just sit on him ’til he moves. That is his daddy.”
As soon as his dad leaves for work, Tigger will go off and find a place to hang out until his dad finally comes home again. Once he’s home and sitting down, Tigger will jump back into his lap for more cuddles. His cuddle time with Dad is very important to him — and if, for some reason, it can’t happen in the morning because his dad is running late, he will pout for the entire day.
He will simply open his mouth as if he were meowing while sitting in the living room with his eyes closed, according to Linderman. “We tell him to open his eyes and come back, but he always appears to be sobbing. Tig will simply rub his face all over my dad’s when my dad picks him up and asks whether we picked on his baby son. He and my father undoubtedly share a particular affinity.
Tigger absolutely hates when his routine gets thrown off. Sometimes he will demand cuddles from other family members instead to make up for it, but really, he’s always just waiting for his dad to get home so he can claim his place on his lap once again.
Tigger is a very loving cat who despises being left alone for any length of time. His father, who is reputed to be one of the best cuddlers in the entire world, is very dear to him.
