Mr. Tuxedo

“A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.” – Groucho Marx

Mr. Tuxedo…his name is Kalimba, pronounced kah-leem-bah. We think he was born Feb 14, 2007. My sister’s ex-husband brought him home (to her house) one day after her cat – Marky-Mark died. She did not like him, to say the least. She didn’t treat him bad, she just didn’t like him. When she went through the divorce, she left him at the house…to be treated much worse. Her ex went to Guatemala, didn’t pay the bills and he was left in a frozen house. On New Year’s Day, 2011, she brought him to my house… and he couldn’t be happier!

oh so proud
Guarding my water dish
with eyes so bright
looking at you
a comfy place (2)
a baby mouse, a happy cat, and Gerry Garcia
a hiding spot
not linked
a spoiled cats dinner
through my cats eye
Mr Cat
the protector of things
with love
your spirit your soul
a mix of emotions

  1. Mr Tuxedo, Kalimba Was indeed a precious fellow. I love the colour his eyes went in the flash. That yellow is unusual. You were lucky to have him in your life.
