My Tuxedo Cat…

I’d like to tell you the story of a kitty…

Once upon a time, a little girl found a kitten living in the bushes next to the front steps of her house.

The little girl immediately fell in love with the kitten and named her Allison.

She asked her mom if they could keep her, but her mom said they couldn’t.

They did the right thing, though, and took her to the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley, Minnesota.

It was then that they discovered that Allison was, in fact, a boy so they changed his name to Alex.

They also discovered that Alex had a bad case of ear mites.

The Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley contacted the veterinary program at Minnesota School of Business in Richfield to see if they could help him; they could.

While being treated by the director of the veterinary program at Minnesota School of Business, MSB & the humane society thought it might be a great idea to try and find Alex a forever home by posting his picture outside of the registrars office.

I saw that picture on the bulletin board outside the registrars office, went back in, and asked what I needed to do to get that kitten; Alex was approximately 5-months old at the time.

The next day, I showed up to check him out in his cage; he was on his back, furiously playing with a little, blue mouse toy.

I wrote them a check to cover his adoption fee.

I had no carrier, and they didn’t either, so I carried him out in my arms, put him in my car, and took him home.

I renamed him Methos, but never forgot his original name; Methos is his first name and Alex is his middle name.

That was 12 years ago this month.

Rescuing him was absolutely THE best decision I’ve ever made.

I love my little tuxedo guy.
