One day Pet Patrol received a call from our TNR volunteers about a mother cat and her four tiny kittens, Tux and Lily being two of them. They were on a country property where it is believed she was abandoned, but had made her way to the barn. She gave birth in the hayloft and eventually this young feline family came into the house, as the mother cat had proven to be friendly and affectionate. She didn’t have enough milk for her kittens and the owner supplemented them with cows milk, which almost cost them their lives. Cats are lactose intolerant. The kittens had massive diarrhea and became dehydrated. They were all in very poor shape when rescued and in need of immediate vet care. They were brought to the sanctuary and given some life saving treatment, enough to help them make it to the vet the next day. They have all thrived and Lily and Tux were adopted by their rescuer’s mother, a fit and active woman, but elderly. Within a year she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and could not care for the cats any more. Her daughter took responsibility for them; but her life was becoming difficult to manage with caring for her mother, other family members and selling the family property. Tux and Lily were soon brought into Pet Patrol care.


Tux is all boy. He likes to sit up high and look out the window at the world, interested in the traffic, squirrels and people out walking their dogs. He is a gentle and loving cat, likes to be pet and brushed and he will purr loudly in delight. Definitely the most affectionate cat of the litter and a lap cat too. Tux can be a little rambunctious at times with his toys, running around as the only cat in the Indy 500, playing pounce with his BFF Lily and being an acrobat on the kitty climber. Tux is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
