Meet Tux


 


Meet Tux, aka Tuxedo.  He is an eight-year-old owner surrender because he wasn't fitting in at his home anymore.  I have said it before and I will say it every single time, kudos to the owner for realizing that the situation was not working well for the kitty and finding a rescue to take the kitty and find him a home that suits him better.  I know, I KNOW we all want homes to be furrever homes, but just like we all want all relationships to work, sometimes they just don't, and that is okay.  It is what you do once you realize that is what is important. Tux is safe and happy and we will find him a home that is a good match for him.

He is a bit of a stress boy right now.  I have had him for a couple of days at this point and I was waiting for him to be a bit more comfortable before introducing him. He is an absolute love, and kinda needy. He really wants to follow me right out of the foster room, I mean like REALLY wants to. He enjoys polishing my ankles with his body and this headbutts might actually leave a bruise one of these days.  He is almost 16lbs of kitty and his head is HUGE - like barely fits in my hand huge.. 

He is not yet comfortable jumping up on the couch with me or climbing in my lap. He REALLY doesn't want his nails trimmed and I decided not to push it. He REALLY REALLY does not want pills (remember when I said his head was huge?? yeah, well that is a problem with how I pill a cat).  I believe his stress (or maybe food allergies??) is causing him to lick his belly so when he arrived he had a weeping hot spot on his belly and a bit of irritation between two of his toes on one of his back feet (oddly, it is something that happened to my cat Eli a couple of times) 

I am working on gaining his full trust. He really wishes that I would do that without touching his feet or picking him up, but even after a short time both of those things are getting a little easier. His belly looks a bit better too.  I am starting to see that he might have a bit of a goofy side.. 


I would say he is ready to be adopted by an experienced kitty owner who isn't afraid of a little irritated skin, or it might be best to keep him for a little longer if there isn't a cat-savvy person ready to take him home.
