Tuck....our tuxedo cat

This is Tuck( top in the photo) and Zack. They joined our family at 5 weeks old--having been taken from their feral mother almost at birth. They were adorable kitties and great cats. Sadly, Zack died about 5 years ago from a stroke, but Tuck is still on the prowl at 14.
Tuck loves to cuddle and curls up under or in any blanket he can
Our tomcat, Kodak, took them both under his wing & taught them everthing they needed to learn--he was a big old softy!
We have found that getting two kittens from the same litter they tend to bond & are best buds. He has a wonderful purr. When he was still young he used to suck on any rawhide shoelaces he could find--we figured it was because he was taken from his mom at such an early age.

I am a cat lover, and enjoy seeing your pictures. Last year we adopted two kittens from the same litter of eight, and they were really fun to watch, and they were best buddies - sort of like mirror images of each other. Sadly, the male died from heatstroke last May, a horrible accident that will forever haunt me. I intend to blog about it one of these days, but it's a sad story. Anyway, I'm enjoying your blog - thanks!
