Tuxedo Cat

Remember the little kitty I blogged about a couple weeks ago? Well, turns out it’s a boy, and I was so excited to be able to pick him up from the animal clinic the other day…

(Click the play button on the video below to see him in action!)

It only took him a couple of hours to get over his camera shyness…

And figured out that dangly camera straps are fun to play with…

We’ve been calling him Kit-Cat, because he reminds us of those old “klocks”…

And we thought the Kit-Cat Creed described him pretty well, too:

Put a smile on everyone’s face;
Love in everyone’s heart;
Energy in everyone’s body;
and be a positive force in everyone’s life!

He’s been living on the “quiet” side of the house, while Max (our chihuahua) has been sticking close to us on the other side. (We have a little gate separating the two sides of the house right now.) Kev and I have been taking turns hanging out with Kit-Cat at different points throughout the day, but Max has always been very jealous of us holding or petting other animals, so it’s pretty much impossible to bring Kit-Cat over to Max’s side of the house. Our old cat, Bean, (who passed away earlier this year) never could sit on our laps because Max would always run him right off. :-(

We’d really like to find someone who doesn’t have an attention hoggin’ dog to adopt little Kit-Cat because he’s so affectionate and we want him to live a stress-free/love-filled life! (We travel a lot, too- so that’s another reason we’re thinking we should find him another home.) The vet said he should remain a strictly indoor kitty because of his fragile leg, and we’ve already taken care of neutering him, and we’ll bring him in for his rabies shot next week. So if you live near Prattville, Alabama- and you’re interested in adopting him, drop me a line and we’ll go from there!

    Did Kitty find a home yet? I keep checking back to see if y’all have posted an update!

    What a sweet story Layla and Kev. So nice that what started out as an abandoned, injured kitty has turned around to a bright future for this little guy, all due to you both. Kudos to you! His story touched me, but being from Canada (a tad far away) and the fact that my hubby is definitely not a cat person, I can’t offer a home. You make a good point about all your travelling – does Max go with you ‘on the road’? I don’t remember seeing him around in your posts from other locations. If the two of them can’t come to terms, that would be difficult. I hope it works out that you either can find a forever home for Kit-Cat, or Max finds a way to accept him. Either way, he is way better off than where he was. Wishing a happy future to you all!

    So many folks don’t bother neutering a male, but they live a much happier, healthier life when they are fixed. So speaking for the Montgomery Humane Society,where I work, thanks! If you can’t find him a home, bring him to us and we will gladly find him one!

    He knows you guys saved him……I sure hope that you can keep him. That kitty will run away and hide from Max…..I say start slowly getting them used to each other. In time, Max will get used to him …..and they’ll become best buds. =)

    About 6 weeks ago a tuxedo kitten walked into the machine shop my husband works at. The guys all thought it would be neat to have a shop cat so they started feeding him, even went out on the 2nd day and bought cat food. But by the end of the 3rd day, they all decided it was too dangerous for such a little fella to be hanging around there, so my husband brought him home to join our other 4 cats:) He is the most loving little thing. Hope yours finds a good home if you guys can’t keep him!

    Just checking in to see whether you are keeping KitKat or if he has found another forever home. All “us cat people” would love to hear the latest about him. Do hope he, and you, are well and thriving. Please let us know.
