Tinkerbell And Tiger
Creature Companions|November 2020
Have you ever thought how it would be to have two cats as pets? This thought gives rise to a lot of questions in one’s mind... Not anymore! Meet Tinkerbell and Tiger, a wonderful loving duo that proved that two cats can be a family to each other. Priyadarshika, their human companion, shares with us their amazing journey full of love and care...

WHEN DID TINKERBELL AND TIGER COME IN YOUR LIFE?

I spent my childhood in Calcutta, where I remember growing up in a house, with a lot of pets, cats and dogs, most of them rescued. It was the best part of my childhood – the bond I shared with them. My husband knew that I always missed having pets when I moved to Mumbai, so for my birthday, he decided to surprise me.

I still can remember the day when I came back home from work, to find Tinkerbell and Tiger sitting near the Christmas tree, already playing with each other! Now that’s what you call a real Christmas surprise! The happiness was so overwhelming, especially to see that they settled right in, without any trouble.

WHAT EQUATION DID TINKERBELL AND TIGER SHARE WITH EACH OTHER?

Tinkerbell was a diva right from the start; she was full of energy and was always trying to find new games to play. Tiger on the other hand was the perfect companion, with an easygoing, laidback nature, who went along with her games! We realized, even while they were kittens, that they were quite a pair who were perfectly content with each other, while we were out for work. They would keep themselves busy with their own games. Anybody who met them would call them ‘made for each other’.

There was this one time, when we had to take Tiger to the vet, Tinkerbell was rather distraught, she kept looking for him all over the house, calling him out, and crying till he got home. They were extremely fond of each other and had a wonderful rapport.

HOW DID YOU LIKE TO SPEND TIME WITH THEM?

For any pet parent, I think it’s easy to relate how difficult it is initially to leave the house when they are small. I remember when they were kittens, leaving the house for office was really emotionally draining for me. We used to rush back home, as soon as possible and wished we had more time to spend with them. For both of us, weekends were just blissful, where we would spend time playing with Tinkerbell and Tiger, get to know them better, and relax with them.
