Triplets ...

... Or further proof that Mom likes Tuxies the best!

I was visitin' my Cousin Zoey's bloggie where she has a post showin' how much we look alike (an' Boo, too).

That got me to thinkin' 'bout how I'm Mom's fourth Tuxie an' the third with the special white chin. I figured that since were were finding our "twins" on the internet, I'd just post my "triplets" from Mom's photo archive. What could be easier?

Mom's first Tuxie-with-a-white-chin was Lacey Bunns. Bunny was born on July 4th in 1988. Her momma, MeeMaw, was a Tuxie, too (but not one with the special white chin). Lacey Bunns had long, angora-like fur, white knuckles, an' white boots.

Bunny went to the 'Bridge on December 10, 1995, an' Mom was furry sad.

While Lacey Bunns was still livin', Mom rescued a little Tuxie boy that she named Toby. This was in August of 1989. Tobinky liked water an' snoopervisin' stuff. He didn't like it when Mom was outside an' he was trapped inside. He'd rub his face against the window screens and cry at Mom so that she'd rub the screen. He'd kiss her fingers through the screen.

As you can see from the photo, Toby barely has any white on his front knuckles, an' he has little white shoes. He loved to have his cottony white "bikini" tickled. Mom used to call him her "Baby Boy" 'cuz she raised him from barely a month old. When he went to the Bridge on November 21, 1996, Mom had to stay home from work 'cuz she couldn't stop cryin'.

An' then she met ME! I am her best cat ('specially 'cuz I'm a Tuxie). She calls me "Beautiful Girl" an' "Honey Maus". I've been livin' with Mom since December 31, 1996. I was a full-grown adult when she 'dopted me (along with my brother, Huckleberry Finn ... who was a cow-cat).

I have the requisite white chin, white mitts, and a pair of white thigh-highs. In fact, of all Mom's Tuxies, I'm the one with the most white fur ...

So, there we are ... Triplets across time. I've got a sister an' a brother from other mothers (but I do think that we have a daddy in common).

I didn't know about the other tuxies. That's furry cool. I'm Mommy's first tuxie. She only had Siamese and McKenzie before me.

It's too bad that those other kitties aren't with you guys anymore. I bet you would have had lots of fun with them. I plan on living forever. Yep, don't see why I won't.

Tuxies are a special cat. My human had one who found her. You are lovely DaisyMae

Daisy said...

How neat that you are the third in a line of distinguished tuxie cats! DMM, I like your white thigh-highs.

Cool! I know I'm not MomBean's first kitty, but I'm her first bog brown Tabbyguy. :D

The Crew said...

I added you and your twins to the list. Good work.

Mom had one other tuxie a long time before she and dad got Bouncey. Her name was Huggy Bear and she had a white chin too! She crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the early 1980's.

It's interesting how much you resemble those that came before you. I've never had a Tuxie brother or sister. You all are very beautiful.

Parker said...

You tuxies are all very good looking kitties! Those who came before you seemed very, very sweet!

Benjamin Fuzz said...

Ooh, I like that time travel theme, DMM! Each of you triplets is just lovely!

I am DKM's first tuxie - I'm pretty sure I've spoiled her for any other tuxies. She's had himalayans, persians, meezers, calicos, gingers, & tabbies.
