Fascinating Facts About the Tuxedo Cat You May Not Know
Typically with a tuxedo cat, you will have fur that is mainly black with some white throughout their coat, on their paws, belly, and even face. Our one cat, he almost has a mustache, it is absolutely darling! I am a huge fan of the black and white, and their coats are always so crisp and the white is so bold next to the black! We have two tuxedo cats, one is Whiskers and the others name is Sassy! They are such fun loving kitties!
I will say, Whiskers is our boy, and he is one active little cat. He is always climbing trees, hunting, and wanting to play. He can be a bit more aggressive when he plays, we have to watch him as his claws are sharp, and this kitty is fast! Sassy, on the other hand, got her name because when she was first brought here she was sassy! If you went to pet her she would let you pet her until she was done, and then would bite you. Now, she has grown up, she is the most loving cat ever. Wants to be petted all the time, rubbing up on your leg, and always the first one to greet us! I am glad she grew out of her sassy stage!
