HISTORY: Tux was found as a stray in Columbia, South Carolina.

What a paradoxical little lady! Tux loves to wait by the door and watch people who enter the room. She can usually be found a few feet away from the nearest person.  As soon as you move towards her, though, she’s gone! Tux’s safe place is on top of the condos and she will bolt there as soon as she feels the slightest bit threatened. Once she settles down, it’s back to investigating people! Tux is clearly very social and curious, but isn’t quite there yet when it comes to trusting people. She also loves to eat and is great with other cats. We are confident that Tux will eventually overcome her apprehension and let her curiosity towards people transform into affection. If you’d like to help her with this transformation, come spend some time with her today.

More about me December 2023: Tux is a bit of a creature of habit in that you’ll typically find her on a platform in a tree by a window. Yep. It’s the same tree and same platform from day to day. What might change are the kitties who opt to be near her on another platform. More recently super shy girl Sweettart seems to be taking a fancy to our pretty lady.  Tux seems to enjoy sharing her space with other cats and while she does not have a best friend per se,  she is a true friend to all.  Tux is a more quiet girl who prefers to relax on the sidelines while the other kitties put on a show. She is open to some petting sessions preferring the head and side areas. If less is more for you and calm, polite and beautiful are qualities you admire in a cat, Tux might be the one for you.
