How old is your tuxie cat?

The rescue we got him from says he’s about 3 years old.

What is his name?


How did they come to live with you?

I thought Misha was lonely and we had discussed getting a second kitty before, so we went back to the rescue we got Misha from and came home with Nunu.


Have you had tuxies before this?

I’ve had solid blacks, but never a Tux


What does he like to do?

Nunu enjoys window watching (especially out of the window in the front door), playing with toys, giving EVERYONE baths, playing with Misha & cuddles, cuddles & more cuddles.


Have you seen their little personality yet?If so, what are they like?

Nunu is definitely bursting with personality. He always wants to be loved on and if you don’t give it to him, he’ll get it anyway, by grabbing your ankles or pulling your hand to wherever he wants to be petted. He’s super talkative. And wants to be right in the middle of everything that’s going on.


What would you like to say to people who are scared of adopting black cats because of the stigma?

Don’t let superstition and/or stigma stop you from loving a black cat/tuxie. Nunu is one of the most adoring cats I’ve had the pleasure of being kept by 😉
