I've had a few tuxedo little girl Shasta just went over the bridge in August due to mouth cancer and her brother Mow (they both were backyard kitties who called my house home. Mow would always talk to me as he walked over to come greet me), he passed in Sept from congestive heart failure. Shasta came in the house to stay 11 years ago, Mow finally decided to come in this past winter. And I still have my big boy tux Patches. I now have a new tux backyard kitty who comes to eat...need to find a name for him.

Cutest Kittens on October 21, 2017:

Tux is an adorable name for one of these black and white kitties!

Monica on October 17, 2017:

Lost my 16 yr old companion Sparkee yesterday to kidney failure. How I miss him. Went to the Humane Society today because the house is so quiet it's deafening. First time in 28 yrs without a cat. Found a lil tuxedo kitten that I adore. I can see why you call them Velcro cats. He literally sat on my shoulder as I filled out the application to adopt him. Haven't settled on a name yet, but "Velcro" may be a winner. Describes him to a tee (LOL). Other kitties I've had and loved....Derf, Annie and Curtis. May they all find that big patch of catnip in the sky.

Tay on September 26, 2017:

I think Coal would be an awesome name too

Jouaireya on April 07, 2017:

My little girl was abandened by her mother. I named her Sweet Pea. She was always Sweet to me but she did not play well with others. Meaning humans. haha Her best friend was a red nose pit. They would play hide and seek, sleep together. In 2014 our red nose went to the rainbow bridge, she had breast cancer. I am so sad to say my Sweet Pea joined her 1 year later, in July with the same cancer. How I truly miss my tuxedo, Sweet Pea.

@anonymous: Barbara, so cool. I have a tuxedo and a Bombay I got together at 8 weeks. Waited 2weeks to name them to see their personality. Needless to say, my tux is Sassy too!! She is VERY sassy. My Bombay is Luvie. After I named her I read they call them "lap fungus" or "Velcro cats." Perfect!!

anonymous on June 14, 2013:

I have 2 Tuxedo cats which were strays. Named them Shy and Sassy. The names are a good fit for them.

The new kitty in our house has been named and our mum doesn't like it. My bro named him and I think it suits the little girl well! It's Queen Marceline Chips Ahoy Consuela Glass Jr. We call her chips or Marceline.

anonymous on January 09, 2013:

I am the proud owner of a very handsome tuxedo cat named Magical Mister Mistoffelees (Mister M. or Misti for short). I came up with the name due to a friend's mom being in a minor version of the musical Cats,

Originally, however, I had considered calling him Houdini like the escape artist due to his personality as a kitten.

Then I was told he was actually a girl, and wound up calling him Purr-sephone for a while before a vet corrected us.

I thought of Purr-sephone because my cat's color is very much a half-and-half situation, and the fictional character in mention was torn between the world of light and the world of darkness.

I have had many cats over the years,of varying colors and patterns with some favorite names being for:

Mischief (Calico)

Beauty (white with a few tiny gray spots -- RIP sweetie)

Prince Charming (very handsome gray and black tabby with white tummy and emerald-y green eyes -- RIP buddy)

Tiger (a classic Tabby name, RIP buddy)

Peekaboo (another classic cat name, with this guy being very mischievous and sneaky -- RIP buddy)

Spitfire (very protective yet dignified cat with a very bright fiery orangey-red tabby pattern -- RIP buddy)

Star (classic tabby with very bright, alert eyes -- RIP sweetie)

Jewel - a loving but spirited little gray tabby with bright alert green eyes

Pocahontas (meaning "little playful one", mostly white with gray van patches)

Orion (meaning "hunter" - another very handsome gray tabby)

Thumbelina (another gray tabby -- RIP, little one)

Tybalt (Shakespeare's "Prince of Cats" -- RIP buddy)

Victor/Victory, Peace, Faith and Hope are the potential names I might have given Pocahontas' kittens, had their precious little lives not been snatched due to cruel circumstances - RIP little ones,

knitstricken on December 27, 2012:

Alas, no more cats for me; my husband is severely allergic. My childhood feline friend was "BC" (can you guess what color he was?) Then along came Nelson, just days old and abandoned with six other kittens. We nursed them to vigor and found homes for the others and Nelson lived to be twelve or thirteen. This lens caught my eye because we now have Portuguese Water Dogs, and in point of fact many of the puppies we've reared have had that "Tuxedo Splash" on their chest. I'll be sure to revisit this lens next time there's a need to find a name! Thanks much!

Great Ideas for names. I'm going to feature this lens on my tribute to Nellie: My Sister's Tuxedo Cat.
