If you’re looking at the title Title Tigger and wondering who is that? Tigger was my last cat. None of you got to meet my Grey Striped Tabby cat Tigger because she died on 9-11-2015 and I didn’t start blogging until January 2017.
In a nutshell, my family and I rescued Tigger out of a very bad situation she was in all through her kittyhood. She didn’t like men for whatever reason. I’m happy to say she eventually made friends with Daisy Mae and in the end made friends with my Dad too.
I wanted to do a tribute to my last cat Tigger who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat. Tigger died on September 11, 2015 and this year marks the fourth year death anniversary.
I miss Tigger daily as well as think of her daily. I look for a whole lot of Butterflies on 9-11 to celebrate her life.
I wanted to do do something special for Tigger so I wrote a poem for her.
MAXI, you were looking for a furrever home… One that would love you forever no matter what.
Then one day a miracle happened. A wonderful, loving family who had just decided they wanted a pet and wanted it to be a small dog walked in just too look.
When you noticed they were looking your way, you tried to be as cute and beautiful as you could. You even showed off by showing this family how cute you really were.
You have brown eyes like that of a beautiful brown Butterfly. Your nose is pink with black speckles on it. You were a small white Bichon Frise dog who looked like a medium sized snowball.
Because this wonderful family decided to get a dog, you now have a wonderful and loving furrever home. Although you didn’t have a favorite football team when they got you, you somehow became an Eagles Fan.
You ended up being a Mama’s Boy and really enjoyed being with her, cuddling with her and laying in those sunpuddles. You also loved cuddling with your “sister” on a Penguin blanket, chasing the Squirrels and Chipmunks, Posing for pictures but most of all you really liked and enjoyed being with your family. You also hated going out into the snow where it was really cold.
Before earning your your wings to go over the Rainbow Bridge after almost 13 years you had so much fun with your furrever family you didn’t want to say goodbye so instead you decided to say farewell. Although your family will mourn your passing and grieve in their own way, they will always have the memories that they will cherish and they will never forget you.
Now that it’s Springtime Butterflies, Cocooned Caterpillars turning into beautiful Butterflies, Cardinals, Baby Cardinals, Squirrels, Baby Squirrels, Deer and Fawns are so cute and fun to watch. Don’t chase or hurt these animals for they are your friends. Well you see Angel MAXI sometimes visits in the form of these animals. Most of the time he will visit in the form of a Butterfly or Cardinal but When a baby animal is born, When you see a Butterfly, When you see a Cardinal or any type of other animal, always remember Angel MAXI is watching and taking care of you.
I wanted to do a Thankful Thursday Post dealing with none other than the obvious, what am I thankful for? You see telling you all every week I am thankful for well… everything both good and bad because it’s part of my journey to my final destination. Some of you may be already at your destination me not so much but I’m getting there. So I thought what could I do to show my thankfulness and then it hit me, why don’t you write a poem and I consider my poem true but yet fun. I hope you Enjoy. Thanks for Reading.

Hello and Welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . We are joining the blog hops for Friendly Fill – Ins and Feline Friday. We hope you join us for the fun blog hop. You will see two sets of answers. One from Queen Daisy Mae and one from me Queen Mom Crystal. Our answers will be in italics and the questions will be in black. Enjoy this fun Friendly Fill – Ins blog hop.
QUEEN DAISY MAE’S ANSWERS
On New Year’s Eve, I plan to play some and get lots of sleep. Why not what else is there for a 12 year-old cat to do?
A goal for 2019 is get as much catnip as possible since Santa Paws didn’t bring the 2 tons of catnip I asked for Christmas. **Please Note** Santa Paws saw to it that some of my family members got me catnip for Christmas.
If I had to choose a guide word for 2019, it would be positivity. With positivity comes happiness. That’s why I chose this word.
New beginnings often come after multiple tries of getting a forever home for cats. I was lucky and fortunate with my forever home. Hope other cats and animals get a loving forever home like I did.
QUEEN MOM CRYSTAL’S ANSWERS
On New Year’s Eve, I try to stay awake and watch the ball come down to bring in 2019.
A goal that I have for 2019 is to be more patient.
If I had to choose a guide word for 2019, it would be patience. I’m a very impatient person and when something isn’t there when I feel it should be I get impatient. However, I’m getting better at it.
New beginnings often come after you or someone close to you gets into a very bad situation and hit rock bottom.

Today we are having a special Flower Friday on Wednesday. What Madi’s Mom is asking is everyone who knew Madi to do something special to honor Madi. She really would like to see silly cartoons, some pictures and etc… I’m doing a little bit of everything. Hope you join us for this special Blog Hop.
Daisy Mae And I really didn’t know Madi bet yet we felt a special bond with her and her mom. Daisy Mae and I came on the blogging scene in January 2017 and April 2017. If some of you are confused, well let me explain. I started my first blog January 2017 and my second blog April 2017. Enough about me. Let’s get back to remembering
You will notice in the picture below there are 2 pictures of cats and a cat waving farewell. The Angel cat in the upper right hand corner represents my cat Angel Tigger and the Angel cat in the bottom left hand corner represents Angel Madi. The cat in the bottom right hand corner waving farewell toMadi represents Madi’s mom.
MADI’S EYES ARE ASKING WHAT ARE YOU DOING MOM?
I also wrote a poem in honor of Madi.
Poem By: Crystal Stewart
Written: September 2018
MADI, MADI, MADI
You were a beautiful Domestic Medium Fur
With a white chest on fact with grey everywhere.
You also had a cute pink nose with freckles.
You were a very lucky kitty cat when a
Wonderful family came in to get a pet on
May 11, 2002 and they loved you so much that
They adopted you and took you to your
Furever home. You lived at your furever home for
16 1/2 years. In this time, you were 200% Diva all the
Way, You loved Bird TV and Snoopervising your peeps.
You also loved all kinds of boxes and when you were
Younger, you were an excellent leaper then when you
Became 15, you became a Crotchety Cougar. Your
Family loved everything about you and didn’t hate one
Thing about you. That says a lot about you as a Diva Cat.
As your furever family enjoyed having you as their pet
And having you as part of the family, you always
Enjoyed each other’s company, compassion, kindness
And love a cat owner has when they adopt a cat.
The time came every cat owner dreads and that is the
Day their cat goes over the Rainbow Bridge. Madi sadly
Went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 13, 2018 and
Was met by my Angel Tigger, other Cat Angels and
Cardinals who came to welcome Madi home
With open paws. The happy part about a cat
Going to the Rainbow Bridge is that they are not
Suffering anymore. The pain of losing Madi will
Ease with time but the pain never goes completely
Away but the memories you make with your cat will
Always be there. So come Spring and Summer and you
See beautiful butterflies flying about, remember that
When a butterfly shows up that is Madi checking that
You are doing OK, When it rains in the Fall
That’s Madi saying to you I’m here if you want to talk
And when it snows that’s Madi saying to you, you may
Hate to shovel snow but the next time you do,
Remember I am as unique as the snowflake that falls
To the ground in the Winter so don’t hate that snow
Because I come as snow in the Winter time. When cats
Leave us for the Rainbow Bridge, they leave pawprints
On our hearts so they can build bridges so they can
Bring all the memories back we cherish and so they
Can comfort us. So when you cry because you are
Missing your beloved cat, don’t be ashamed to cry
Because that is your beloved cat, Madi coming to you
through your tears.
So when you go to get yourself a cat, please ADOPT
