Draw My Life – Tiger Edition

Draw My Life – Tiger Edition


Hi Everyone, my name’s Tony. I’m a pet tiger. I was born here in America, although I’m not sure exactly where, or actually when. I remember I could feel my brothers and sisters, lying next to me, and I could smell my mom nearby, but then, we were taken away from her and I never got to see my mom. As a cub, my eyes were closed for the first week or so of my life, and all I wanted to do was be with my mom. Instead, I was passed around to different people and was only offered bottled milk formulas, which tasted pretty gross, and they didn’t even bother to warm it up half the time, but I had nothing else, so I drank what I could, because I was so hungry. When I was finally able to open my eyes, I discovered that me and my three brothers and two sisters, were being kept in a cage in someone’s backyard. I could hear other tigers nearby, and we were all cold and didn’t really have room to do anything except huddle together and try to stay warm. We were all scared without our mom to keep us safe, and I felt pretty sick. This was my life for the first few weeks. Then, it got much worse. You see, what I’ve learned since then is that we were owned by a backyard breeder. These people are constantly breeding big cats and other exotic animals to profit from them, and definitely don’t care about animal welfare, or conservation as they often claim. All they care about is making money. When my brothers and sisters and I were only a few weeks old, we got split up. I was shoved into a pet carrier with one of my brothers, and we spent hours and hours driving somewhere. We never saw our brother and sisters again. We finally arrived in an enormous building and were taken inside. I remember it being very bright and the noise was just unbearable. There were people everywhere talking and shouting and all of them wanted to hold and pet us. Worst of all were the photos. You’d be passed around to children and their families, who’d hold us so we could barely breathe, and then there would be a giant flash that blinded my sensitive eyes, and this would go on and on. All we really wanted to do was sleep, but we were constantly awakened so someone could handle us, or to have their picture taken with us. After a few days of this we moved on to another location. Shopping malls, parking lots, fairs. We’d arrive sleep deprived and sick. Being touched by so many people spreads disease from them to us, and vice versa. My brother was worse off than me. He had constant diarrhea, but was still kept on display. He died a few days later. I was forced to do this for months. Not enough sleep, bad food, horrible noise. When I did act on my natural instincts, screaming for my mom. or playing like the tiger that I am, I was beat, disciplined, never knowing why. They tell people that they do the traveling show to support their animals and educate people. What a load of crap. Once I started getting too big to be used as a photo prop, and therefore not making money for them, the owners of the traveling show sold me as a pet, to some guy and his family, not knowing what a big mistake they’d made, or maybe they just didn’t care. They were helping to support this animal abuse, just like all of the people who had their photo taken with me and my brother. I was at an age when I wanted to explore everything. I was confined to the house, so simple playing and rough-housing didn’t keep me entertained for long, plus sometimes I was too rough. Soon I was climbing all over the place, scratching up their furniture and their belongings, to mark my territory and then peeing on it, so that everybody knew this was mine. The man didn’t seem to like it when I did this, and he tried to beat the wild instincts out of me just like my previous owners. Then after a while, when I was really starting to look like a tiger, getting bigger and becoming more mature, they stuck me outside, and for the past five years, I’ve been living in an 8 by 8 cage in her backyard. Tigers roam hundreds of square miles in the wild, and all I’ve got is this chain-link walls and concrete. I’m always bored, have nothing to look forward to, apart from food, and what he feeds me isn’t very nice, and nowhere near enough. Now I just sleep and look for any opportunity to get out of this place. I wonder if people in the area even know that they have a tiger living in the neighborhood. I guess I’m one of the so-called lucky ones. My one brother passed away when we were little. I have no idea what happened to my other brother, two sisters, and of course my mom. I hear some exploiters also forced tiger cubs to swim with paying customers, because it can’t scream or play like tiger cubs do when they’re swimming for their lives. It may have also been sold as so-called pets, or to roadside zoos. They could still be traveling around the country living their lives stuck in transport cages, and being pointed at by unknowing children and their families. My sister’s could still be at the breeders compound, and instead of breeding every two to three years like tigers in the wild, they’ll be forced to give birth year-round to new money-making Cubs, feeling the heartache every time their Cubs are snatched away. And this incessant breeding results in many dying from reproductive cancers. Worse yet, they could have been used in canned hunting operations, where hunters pay a fee to shoot exotic animals in confined spaces, with no chance of escape, which gives the hunters, no chance of missing out on their trophies. Tigers are also commonly killed for their body parts, many of which are used in traditional Asian medicine and their meat is also sold in countries, including America, to consumers who just have to try lion tacos or tiger steaks. This also provides a smoke screen for the illegal poaching of big cats in the wild, because, you can’t tell where your animal came from. Right now my outlook is bleak. I can live to be over 20 years old in captivity, which means another 15 years stuck in this tiny cage, where I receive no routine vet care, eat a poor diet, and it’s unlikely that my owners will want to pay the expense for any of the medical care that I may need in the future. There’s thought to be only around 3,000 tigers left in the wild, but there’s an estimated five to ten thousand privately owned tigers and other big cats in the United States alone. That’s right, five to ten thousand! Imagine if all the money spent handling Cubs and raising tigers in cages, we’re spent on saving the tigers in the wild. If you want to help stop this abuse and suffering, there is a way to help. Please go to BigCatBan.com, and take a minute of your time to help give tigers like me, a voice. (CC reviewed)

  6. I haven't finished this and I didn't plan to comment, but I was in shock at just hearing about the 8 x 8 cage. An 8 x 8 cage is just over pushing it for 2 guinea pigs, and male tigers can grow up to 13 ft. long! For five years he was kept in a cage where he could barely turn around! Who in their right mind would think this would be "acceptable?"

  19. Im sorry if i sound very evil but who cares because the people who does this to poor animals should have all their bones BROKEN WHILE THEY ARE AWAKE!!! i HATE people who act like animals dont have emotions just because they cant talk or as smart as Albert Einstein. people should fucking understand that animals aint a toy or entertainment for us, they dont exist for us to keep, they exist because nature needs animals to keep earth healthy and strong.

    people who breed animals just for money and entertainment should be mauled to death!! NO ONE SHOULD DO THIS TO A POOR ANIMAL FOR GOD'S SAKE!!!!

  21. These people are just cruel and who BREEDS animals TO DEATH???
    One like = one cruel man hopefully put into jail or cruel woman
    One like = one wild animal back to itโ€™s home and back into the wild

  22. I love tigers so much that I would like to have one as pet but I need a bigger house and a nice big space to keep it but than again I wanna keep it in the wilderness where it belongs

  23. i love tigers those other people suck if i had a tiger i would treat it well and feed it better food that moldy meat yuk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im mad why would people do that to tigers >:(

  24. You have a new subscriber! And I canโ€™t believe they would do that even in 2013 itโ€™s still disgusting

  25. If this tiger name is Tony and the tiger on the frosted flakes box is also Tony if I buy frosted flakes does that also make me a bad person

  27. Seeing tigers at the zoo is boring
