Adopt Tux. Sandy Geddry


Two year old Tux knows how to relax. He plunks himself down in his bed where he is comfortable watching the activity all around him. You could say that Tux loves to chill.

Another thing that Tux loves is having his belly rubbed. He’ll stretch himself out to get as much coverage as possible. He’ll remain in that position until the person doing the rubbing gets tired.

Tux is a friendly fellow. He’s okay around children, but he is not happy being with other cats. Perhaps he’s afraid he will have to share his bed.

If you like your cats laid back and friendly you have to meet Tux. Call Responsible Pet Care to make a private appointment.
