Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day Commentathon

Hola kitties! Today is the most important holiday of the year! It's Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day! Back in 2016 I declared that on this day we would honor tuxedo cats when I noticed special days for ginger cats and black cats but none for us tuxies. On this day we 'specially honor one particular tuxie—Me. You may ax why. It's my 14th Gotcha Day! What a coinkydink that they fall on the same day.

Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day Commentathon

Everyone knows my "story" as I tell it but truth be told no one knows my real background … where I came from … how old I was when I entered the shelter system … what condition I was found in. All that is known is I was rescued from a kill shelter in Jersey City and wound up at an adoption event in Hoboken.

Chances are now if you go to most good rescues' web sites or PetFinder pages, you can find a brief history of the cat you'd like to adopt—if the cat was dumped, the approximate age, where they were found, if there are health concerns, etc. Perhaps Tuxie was found in a parking lot of a supermarket along with a mother cat and two siblings all of which were covered with fleas and suffering from bad colds. That's no reason not to adopt but you know her story.

Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day Commentathon

There was nothing on me. No medical history, no family history. Just a few stunning photos. In fact they had three different intake days listed for me so we're not sure when my birthday is. Apparently I was an orphaned juvenile delinquent in the wrong place at the right time. But that's OK. None of that matters cos this little ghetto kitteh made something of herself.

It's my 14th Gotcha Day and I talked the peeps into both a commentathon AND giveaway.

Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day Commentathon

My favorite toy is my Furbit from The Ecstatic Cat which I've named Furbie. TW bought a few extra Furbits for Christmas and I'd like to share the wealth with two of my furrends. This giveaway is NOT sponsored by The Ecstatic Cat so just leave a Gotcha Day message in a comment for me and let me know you'd like to be entered. There'll be two winners and each will receive a furbit of their own. I'll ax Mr. Randomizer to pick a winner next week. These toys aren't made from felt or cotton. They're made from real sheepskin and leather and don't contain any nip or fillers. You'll smell that you're playing with a real animal and not some piece of cloth.

An actual new Furbit

Some of your humans may object to you having real fur to play with. I say they should get over it cos it's only a cat toy to make their cat happy and not like it's a fur coat or something cos TW isn't down with humans wearing animals. Even if you don't want to be entered, leave a message since the peeps will be donating fifty cents for every comment up to $25 to Union City Feral Cat Committee. HAH! I don't think I've ever had 50 comments on one post so this will be a good goal.

Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day Commentathon

I hear Furbie calling me so I gotta go. TIA for your comments and good wishes. One last bit of business. Today is also Puzzle Day and the peeps say I'm really an enigma. I've created a new puzzle which encompasses Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day, my Gotcha Day and Puzzle Day.

Dang! I couldn't even find the last piece of the puzzle anywhere, no matter where I moved the puzzle to, so I couldn't finish. I would have finished right around the same time as Boi.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Belated Happy Gotcha Day CK!!!

Sorry we are so late stopping by to give you our wishes. Furbie looks wonderful, Mom actually doesn't have a problem with animal skins as long as the poor animal was going to be killed for food anyway. Her attitude is that in that case you should make use of everything, and not let anything go to waste. At least that's how she justified her suede jacket. We think we would like a Furbie of our own to play with thanks for letting us know about them.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Sorry we're late commentating but Happy Gotcha Day!

Purrs xx
