Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day #FlashbackFriday

As it's Tuxedo Cat Appreciation Day I am allowing Mum to post a photo of her darling Tuxedo cat Suzy (1985-98). 

Here is a photo of her, with an arty one below. Mum wishes she had so many more pics of Suzy as these are mostly low-quality - taken on old 80s and 90s cameras.

Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two and co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two.  

1. So far 2021 is ____________________.
2. A book (movie or song) title that best describes my life is ___________________________.
3. _________ was a pleasant surprise.
4. I learned that _________ is a recipe for disaster.


1. So far 2021 is moving too fast. It's just so scary how quickly each year goes by.
2. A book (movie or song) title that best describes my life is - there are just so many that I can't think of one right now. Maybe The Escapist by Nightwish. I've always hated reality, always want to escape it. It hasn't got me very far, but I'm a dreamer.


3. Extra treats today from Mum was a pleasant surprise.
4. I learned that annoying Mum at night when she's just got into bed is a recipe for disaster. She does shout sometimes - though she will never hurt me. After I've got the result I wanted (I like getting her annoyed as I'm such a tease),  I'll jump straight into bed, knowing she will quickly forgive me. I then snuggle against her legs and sleep. Hopefully, this calms her down too.


And here is the photo fail.

I love your photo fail, Athena - it reminds me of so many fail photos of me! My human wishes she had more photos of her cat from the 1980s and 1990s - there are only a pawful.

A pleasure to see your mom's beautiful Tuxi and to see you again, a beautiful girl on your pwn.

Suzy was a pretty girl, and that is a lovely art effect of her.

Our feral Sammy was a tuxie; I didn't think to include him today!

Suzy was a beautiful girl. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I agree with #1, whether having fun or not, time goes by too fast. Athena, I know your mum would never stay mad at you. And that photo of you is too cute to be a fail. XO

Angel Suzy was a beautiful cat indeed. So is Goddess Athena. Love the fill-ins and especially Athena's #4. It made me chuckle.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

Great answers! I didn't know today was National Tuxedo Cat day. My Oreo is a Tux. I'll have to let her know and give her a few treats.

Have a great weekend!

Your sweet Suzy was absolutely gorgeous! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! It feels like 2021 is somehow going both slowly and extremely fast. It's strange how years pass. And we're hoping you get lots more extra treats, Athena! Purrs!
