Facts about Tux

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 23669
  • Hair: Unknown
Tux will be 3 on May 2nd, 2017. He is a very loveable cat but on his own terms. He is not a fan of being picked up but loves belly rubs.

Tux also has high anxiety. He is currently on a 225mg dose of a medicine to help.

With his anxiety, comes the problem of peeing outside of the litter box. Tux lives with another cat and a dog. The vet has told me he would do better in a very low energy household and the behavioral issue she believes would stop.

Tux is ok with the other cat, but would do better on his own as a only pet.

I have tried for months and bought everything you can think of to help keep him calm, but nothing is helping.

Unfortunately, as much as it breaks my heart, Tux is not happy in this family. I hate to give him up, but I hate even more how unhappy he is. I just want him to be able to enjoy the rest of his kitty life.
