Question #4: Hold That Tiger

Although the sportsmen never saw a tiger, they viewed a number of deer, peacock, and wild boar. Their goal was to bag a tiger, but the closest specimens found were jackals. Toward the end of their trip, Grandfather, who was strolling down the forest path at some distance from the rest of the party, discovered a little tiger about eighteen inches long, hiding among the intricate roots of a banyan tree. Grandfather picked him up and brought him home after the trip. He had the distinction of being the only member of the party to have bagged any game, dead or alive.

The family treated Timothy like the family cat. One of Timothy's favorite amusements was to stalk anyone who would play with him, and so, when I came to live with Grandfather, I became one of Timothy’s favorites.

He was by this time the size of a full-grown retriever, and when I took him out for walks, people on the road would give us a wide berth.

His favorite place in the house was the couch, and he would make himself comfortable on the long sofa, reclining there with great dignity, and snarling at anybody who tried to get him off.

The summary is:
Question #11: Hold That Tiger

Timothy had to be chained up more often. And finally, when he began to stalk people living in our house, like Kala the house cleaner, with what looked like villainous intent, Grandfather decided it was time to transfer him to a zoo.

The summary is:
Question #12: Hold That Tiger

The nearest zoo was at Lucknow, a large city in northern India, two hundred miles away.

About six months later, when my grandparents were visiting relatives in Lucknow, Grandfather took the opportunity of visiting at the zoo to see how Timothy was adjusting.

It licked Grandfather's hands and only sprang away when a leopard in the next cage snarled at him. Grandfather "shooed" the leopard away, and the tiger returned to lick his hands; but every now and then the leopard would rush at the bars, and he would slink back to his corner. A number of people had gathered to watch the reunion when a keeper pushed his way through the crowd and asked Grandfather what he was doing.
