I named my tuxedo Marilyn after Marilyn Monroe because of the black white classiness, attitude, confidence. And the fact she loved to do black and white photos!
I named my male tuxedo cat ( which is black with a white mustache and a heart on both elbows) Midnight but it didn’t show in the categories
He is also an outdoor cat but he always comes back
I named my Tuxedo kitty; Princess because she just reminds me of Royalty. She commands attention from me 24/7 except when she is in one of her “Leave me Alone” moods which is rare. She craves cuddles & gives back incredible cuddles herself.
I NAMED BY BEAUTIFUL ,INTELLIGENT, AMAZING TUXEDO CAT “SPIRIT ” BECAUSE SHE HAS A SPIRITED LOVE FOR ME AND PLAYS ALL THE . SHE IS AMAZING I HOPE SHE LIVES FOR AT LEAST 15 YEARS BUT WISH FOR 20. SHE IS AN INDOOR KITTY AND I SPOIL HER TO DEATH SHE IS THE PROUD OWNER OF 3 CAT TREES. I LOVE HER MORE THAN ANYONE.
Our Lucky Bear was named by our granddaughters after surviving a difficult birth. You wouldn’t know it by his “huge-ness” today. He’s practically perfect in every way, except he’s a slob with his food.
My tuxedo is named Henry. He is very quiet and won’t flinch at anything coming his way. Very sweet, but I do feel that if he were human he’d possibly be a serial killer. So I’m glad he’s just my kitty from the streets lol.
Mine is Mardi Gras because of his mask. To preserve his dignity, we call him Mardi.
My brother and sister kitties are Marcos and coco. They are very playful and affectionate. Lap cats.
Our kitty was called coco because she was very shy and we thought the name would suit her.
i am just a kid but oneday i want a cat
cat are rilly nice but some are scared but i would not call one mean
This cat had kittens on my cousins porch and one of them was a boy, the rest of the cats were girls. I named the boy, it was a tuxedo cat, since it reminded me of oreos, i named him Oreo. Oreo was so sweet and gentle, but his sisters were mean.
My husband named our tuxedo cat Rukkus, & let me tell you, he has lived up to his name! He has always been very vocal & is definitely the most talkative of our 4. We inherited his aunt’s tuxedo cat when she passed away summer of 2019. He is the cutest! His legs are a little shorter than an average cat’s, we have no idea why, but if gives him a Corgi like appearance. She named him Buttons b/c it looks like he has black buttons on the white belly of his tux. I just love them both!
My tuxedo is named The Panda Bear. I’ve had him since his birth. He was bottle fed with cat Similac. He’s my world.
I named my tuxedo Domino because she is black & white…….she’s smart, knows her name and certain commands.
my cats name is nightmare and he’s the sweetest that I’ve ever had I’ve had a lot of cats
I named my cat hopper and he is soo playful that he destroys his sister named firefly which are both tuxedos and i’m addicted to him
Those are adorable names! Wishing you all the best.
My tuxedo cat’s name is Butler and is the best lap cat in VA.
I wanted to ask people with their tuxedos about how my SPIRIT plays, do any of your cats play like this?
She plays with three unusual things, any kind of bags paper or plastic, boxes and the 3rd and the craziest plastic clear straws. Do your tuxes ever play with any of these items? Please let me know.
Many, many Thanks!
Hi Tamara, all of those are playthings most kitties would love, whether tuxedo or not, and I’m sure you’ll find plenty of tuxedo cats who share Spirit’s interests.
I just got kidnapped and held hostage by my Tuxedo kitty. He walked in the house and owned me and everything else instantly. I named him Jaymz Bond, since he’s always wearing a tuxedo. He also has markings on his chin that makes it look like he’s always wearing a black tie.
I know he’s not chipped or fixed, but I intend to do that as soon as I can get an appointment
to get him in. They are pretty backed up right now.
I think he’s pretty young, I’ll have to have the Dr tell me.
Now that he has claimed everything as His; I’m now the servant and the maid.
Let the Mayhem and torture begin.
I LOVE him to no end.
