Facts about Mr. Tux

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7676 S1
  • Hair: Short
Mr. Tux: So completely unique that it is hard to describe him. Long and lanky, he has the same affectionate and gentle qualities as his sister but a quirky energy and curiosity too. An example of this combination is that when he is zooming and leaping toward his prey (mouse toys especially) - he doesn't use his claws. No matter how excited he gets, it's never aggressive. He will calm down within minutes to pause for cheek rubs, of which he accepts so passionately he often falls over leaning into them. He also likes to bury himself in blankets and sleep under pillows and any other object that will give him cover. After hours tucked away like this, he will awaken to greet you with a purr and slinky figure 8's around your legs, then happily explore what you're up to; something as simple as turning out the light in a standing lamp, he'll be right there on the top of the chair nearby, reaching out as far as he can to investigate. Highly intelligent, he is alert to sounds in the hall and birds outside which he will watch with keen interest. Like his sister, he loves to be pet and will purr gently right away but prefers sleeping on his own. He has a normal appetite; enjoying chicken-based wet food and loving grain-free dry food for snacks. He is a wonderfully balanced cat that will provide both endless hours of entertainment and loving companionship.

He is very bonded with Ms. Laila and they must go together.

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
