Charity Tuesday #TuxieTuesday

Black and White Cats Matter Too

Did you know that in the UK 75% of cats are black and white "Tuxedos"? Two of Mum's past cats were black and white, and she says they were amazing cats, especially Suzy. Unfortunately, Mum's first Tuxie, Cas, disappeared.

But just like all black cats, black and white cats are overlooked by many humans when choosing a cat. They can spend a lot longer in shelters awaiting adoption.

That's why, when Tuxedo Cat contacted us to give them a mention here, we thought why not? This fab website aims to give a voice to Tuxedo cats, helping "to spread the message that just because a cat looks common there is nothing common about the infectious personalities and enthusiasm for life that you get from a Tuxedo Cat!" 


And as we are celebrating the beauty of the Tuxie cat, here are a couple of beauties awaiting loving forever homes at Wood Green, the Animal Charity.

Every Charity Tuesday we like to feature some rescue kitties from the charity as it's one of the main ones we support (and I came from there!)


Winifrid (Photo: Wood Green)
This little girl is called Winifred. She was a stray and decided to take up residence in someone''s greenhouse. Winifred is now enjoying regular meals and a cosy bed while waiting for a forever home. She can be a bit wary to start with, but with a bit TLC and patience, she will become a loving companion for someone. She is at the Heydon centre. Check out her profile for more info. 


Puff (Photo: Wood Green)
Lovely Puff came to the shelter with her brother Huff. They are now looking for a forever home where they can be given time and TLC in order for them to flourish. Both kitties are quite shy at the moment so will therefore need a quiet home with experienced owners. If you can offer this lovely pair a new home then please check out their profile for more info. They are both at Heydon.

We are sad to see that Queen Whisper is still waiting for a new forever home. You may remember that we featured her last Tuesday.  She's so sweet. We hope she finds a loving new home soon.

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued). Mum and I are so grateful to this amazing charity because without them we would never have found each other! Please note however that this post does contain some affiliate links. This means if you click on the Zazzle or Amazon links to purchase any of the items featured, I will receive a small affiliate commission. We are not affiliated with any other charity mentioned in this post.

We LURV black-and-white kitties! Our Angel is cow-colored; mostly white with big black splotches, on her back and head. She is a peach!

I had no idea that was true of tuxies in the UK. Interesting!

Oh you guys! I hope you find your forever homes soon! And I'm surprised the percentage is that high in the UK - 75%! Wow!
