Unlikely to arrive before Christmas
Tiger and his lady, Boston, move to the Everglades, into an old, hopefully, rat infested trailer. This tale chronicles his interactions with the wildlife. He backs carefully away from the rattlesnake and the Florida panther disrespects him before walking off. He is safe inside when the very rare crocodile walks by, scattering lubber grasshoppers. When he sees his first heron, he hides under the bed, and gets stuck.
In "The Hidden Room," Tiger sulks when Boston leaves him alone for the night. He eats his food, naps, and plays with his toys. He stumbles through a concealed panel into a hidden room. There is no way out and nothing to eat and he falls asleep hoping he doesn't starve.
He TP-s the bathroom in "The Lost Laptop," covering the floor with torn scraps of toilet paper and cat litter. Boston is not angry, but awed. Proud of his work, he gloats and listens to her tales of her day as he plots more mayhem.
Tiger is outraged when a hawk steals his snack out from under his nose in "The Hawk and the Rock." He doesn't get any sympathy from Boston, because he's not supposed to hunt in the park.
In "Family," Boston's seasonal position is over. Neither of them wants to leave the park or the people. Tiger is having fun. Boston has fallen in love. But they can't stay. Boston takes Tiger to the vet for certification so he can fly home and he gleefully terrifies the doctor. They stop to watch key deer and alligators on the way back and sit on the dock one last time.
