Cat needs a home.....

This handsome boy needs a home.   One of my quilting friends in SE Wisconsin has rescued him after feeding him for a month, but our bitter cold winds this week and the onset of winter soon made it mandatory for her to bring him in from the cold. 

Now he has been neutered and has all his treatments and is ready for a home.  Her house is full with other cats she has taken in and now loves, and she is so wishing a new home would be possible for this friendly and loving cat. 

"Hello! Meow!

What are you waiting for?
Kitty needs your lap!

Last night he spent an hour in my lap - happily cleaning himself and giving me kisses.

He might even be a shoulder-cruiser. I know he loves to be carried.

Please let us know that you want to love him."

And from Mr. Tuxedo himself:

"I am Tuxedo Kitty.

I am a young male. I was an outdoor kitty until October 27, when I was taken inside following those big scary windstorms.

Even though I never knew a gentle human touch I quickly recognized that petting makes me start my motor.

I love being carried and I love being petted and I love just lounging in a soft lap.

I really don’t want to live in a barn and am looking for a nice home with friendly hands to touch me.

My rescuer has 6 indoor kitties already and while I thought this would be a nice home, my rescuer takes her kitties to Florida. I can sympathize that the car would be pretty full with 7 of us plus two humans.

If you or your friends will take me, I will love you forever.

I realize this is for a limited geographic area, but I wanted to do my part in spreading the news about this little guy.

His name could be Tuxedo! What a cute kitty. I do hope someone close by takes him in!

Jane, he is very handsome, Tuxedo would be great. My first cat as a grown-up was one just like this, and his name was Oreo. My friend Ann Fahl now has a tuxedo female named Oreo. Tuxedo cats are excellent for quilters! Diane.

What a sweet face, Diane. I hope he finds a new home soon.

Thanks Donna, I hope so too. I hear he has been happy and chirping now that he is in from the cold. But he needs a home....

When I get back from Houston we are taking the "feral" male cat to the vet and getting him fixed. Unfortunately I will then be posting his photo all around the neighborhood trying to find a home for two voted an emphatic no-way.

Hope you have good luck finding him a good home!

I have one too and have been feeding it for a few weeks, but with this cold, I got him in finally. Tomorrow I can call the shelters to see if anyone is missing one, then see about getting him neutered. He is a sweet cat but my girls are not thrilled with him, so will see how things go.

Thanks everyone, for your good wishes, and for saving cats. We took in two of ours years ago, this exact time of year, as woods strays, and they were the BEST. They always know you saved them. I wasn't looking for another cat but they became part of my heart.
