Year of the Tiger Kitty

According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger. It begins on February 14, Valentine’s Day. The Tiger is the third sign in the Chinese Zodiac cycle,¬†and is a sign of bravery. It is admired by many Chinese because it is the sign that keeps away fire, thieves, and ghosts from the home. They also have protective powers to keep children safe. People that are born in the Year of the Tiger generally posses a charismatic personality. They are sensitive, adventurous, energetic, and passionate!

This is my tribute to the Year of the Tiger- Tiger Kitty! He is resting beneath a branch of plum blossoms because they are commonly used to decorate the home during Chinese New Year. They are seen as a symbol of winter, as well as a harbinger of spring. I also liked the idea that plum blossoms symbolize pure, honest friendship and perseverance.

My Tiger Kitty may not seem very ferocious, but he is still watchful and can provide ample protection. His smile is courageous and he is ready to pounce at a moment’s warning.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! (Wishing you good fortune)

Sun Neen Fai Lok! (Happy New Year)
