Facts about Tigger

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Tigger is a ten-year-old orange male cat. Tigger belonged to an elderly owner, and when it was discovered he had liver issues, his owner thought best to euthanize him. One of our volunteers thought not, and received authorization to bring him to us. Tigger does have liver disease, and that disease may someday claim him. Today is not that day. Tigger is on a new medication, and rather than declining, Tigger has latched onto his new lease on life. He’s gaining weight (the little chowhound!), and has taken rapid strides in improvement. Tigger bounces like his namesake from Pooh, and he loves human attention and love, waiting patiently for you to scoop him up and cuddle him. He’s a purrfect feline companion; he likes other cats, he’s playful, and loves to talk to you. We’d love to see him find his forever home, one that will treasure and cherish him for the rest of his days. Maybe that’s you!

At PAAWS RI, all of the cats that come into our care are spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccination, distemper vaccinations, de-worming, flea treatment, microchipping, and testing for Feline Leukemia/FIV.

About PAAWS RI

About Our Shelter...

The mission of PAAWS RI is to provide services to Rhode Island’s most vulnerable populations of animals, through two specific programs.

The first part of our mission is to maintain a shelter/rescue program. Stray and abandoned animals have limited options for treatment through traditional veterinarians and shelters.

PAAWS RI will fill this gap with our shelter/rescue program and provide these homeless animals with shelter, medical care and rehabilitation. Once these animals are returned to
optimal health they will be adopted out to their forever home.

Many cats and dogs are suffering with easily treatable problems because affordable veterinary care is unavailable. We will fill that void with our program to provide funding for medical and surgical services. Recipients of these subsides will be animals belonging to low-income pet owners and shelter groups. Services include preventative and sick animal care, surgical and dental procedures, vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries.

Come Meet Our Pets...

PAAWS RI is located within the veterinary clinic, Care For Animals. You can meet our pets for adopiton during regular business hours.

Monday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
