The Tigers

Back to Dr. L.'s Homepage

We affectionately call our cats "The Tigers."  Currently we have two female tigers:  Calliope (aka P-Pod) and Scamp.    The images on this page are thumbnail images.  Click on an image to get a high resolution picture of a tiger!  We also have pics of tigers we have known and loved (yes, we are nuts about our cats!).

Our latest edition to our cat family is Caliope (aka P-Pod) who Dr. L. found after ushering a Waterworks Players play one evening in late February 2008.  Of course Dr. L. took her home and a couple of weeks later we found out she was pregnant!  We kept one of the three kittens, Scamp.  Below you see Scamp and P-Pod.

P-Pod with her three babies (early Summer 2008).  Scamp is on the left.  The other two kittens were adopted by my colleague, Dr. Carl Riden.

Our 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.
