We affectionately call our cats "The Tigers."
Currently we have three tigers: Scamp and the two boys, Blackie and
Bobb. The year 2021 was hard for us as we lost two of our female cats:
our oldest cat, P-Pod and our youngest cat, Wompas.
While P-Pod was somewhat expected, losing Wompas broke our hearts. You
can see more pictures of tigers we have known and
loved (yes, we are nuts about our cats!).

In the Fall of 2021 we quickly went from a two
cat household to a five cat household. Below were our three new members:
Blackie, Bobb (a natural bob-tailed cat), and Wompas. All three appeared
on our front porch within a month of each other. We believe the boys
Blackie and Bobb are litter mates and Wompus (a female) is a month or so
younger. Unfortunately Wompas was hit by a car in December 2022.

tigers like to help us pack for trips. When we were packing for our Grand
Canyon trip (Summer 2008) Scamp showed us how to fill a bag (left). When
we were packing for our Okcracoke trip (Summer 2010) Scamp and P-Pod inspected
our luggage (right). Notice that Scamp is no longer a kitten.
