Tiger's Fetish

Tiger has an "issue." He doesn't think it is an "issue," but sometimes I am a bit concerned for him. You see, he has a fetish, a shoe fetish. And it started when he was a youngster.

This was the first time I noticed it. I should have known it would get worse. But I missed the clues. Of course, at that time, it seemed cute. Oh, he likes my shoes. So sweet.

But as he has gotten older, he's grown more attached to shoes. First it was my shoes.

And then it was Scott's shoes.

And his sneakers.

After a while, he decided to share his love of shoes with Motor. (please excuse the glowing eyes)

Last night, it got really bad. Tiger gathered all the shoes he could find in the house. When I walked into the living room, I found him there, lying on the pile of shoes. I said,"Tiger, what are you doing? Tiger looked at me and responded, "Back away Mom. These shoes are MINE!"

Haha! Tiger you are funny. One of mum's cats that she had a long time ago had a thing about shoes, but it was only the shoes of one particular friend. He didn't have any pets, but as soon as he came into the house, Marmi would make a beeline for his shoes and roll and drool all over them and try to chew them. He never did it to any other shoes.

MOL! Grayce & Johnny likes shoes, too. Johnny especially likes Crocs, maybe because they're worn barefoot and get deliciously "stinky". Who knows?

Angel Cat Chuckles loved shoes so much he wouldn't wait for the People to take them off before he went wild in love. If Tiger gets to that point, well, maybe it'll be time to stage an intervention!

Lol. Our uncle Mosje used to be just like that. He loved lying on feet or shoes.

Funny! We never heard of something like that. Nicky used to play inside his human dad's house slippers, but only until he couldn't fit inside any more.

Do you think a twelve step program will help or would that be to close to shoes!

shoes are full of pheromones and smells from the outside...both arousing his mancatliness and hunting instinct
