Meet Tuxie! He’s a sweet 6-year-old boy from California.
Tuxie was rescued by his human mom, Bonnie, as a feral kitten.
One day Tuxie’s birth mom (who was also feral) dropped him off at Bonnie’s house. She would come by and visit for 3 weeks, until one day she disappeared and never returned.
No one knows what happened to Tuxie’s mom, but one thing is clear: she trusted Bonnie to take care of her kitten.
Tuxie was a little nervous about humans at first. He didn’t know any better.
However, it didn’t take long for him to warm up to Bonnie and her family!
Each day their bond grew stronger as Bonnie showed Tuxie what it meant to be loved and cared for by a human family.
Bonnie named the little kitten who showed up at her doorstep Tuxie.
“Tuxie is a grey and white tuxedo cat with half a mustache. The name just fit him,” said Bonnie.
Tuxie loves getting exercise by going on walks. After a walk, he’ll work up an appetite and be rewarded by his mom with some well deserved treats.
Then he’ll retire to a sunny corner of the house for a nice, long nap.
Tuxie isn’t shy when it it comes to telling his mom how much he loves her.
He’ll sleep next to her at night and hold her hand with his precious little paws.
“He is very needy and wants to be everywhere I am at all times. He always wants to be close to me,” said Bonnie.
In fact, Tuxie can’t bear the thought of his mom having to leave the house.
As soon as Bonnie puts her shoes on, he’ll come running up to her and pouts.
But she’s never gone for too long! Tuxie is always excited to greet his mom when she returns home.
This sweet boy has a lifetime of memories to look forward to with his favorite human.
We’re proud to call Tuxie a National Kitty!
