Joey: MUH mommy and daddy adopteds me from a kitteh rescue group in Austin, MN calleds Cats Off Broadway. Mommy’s first kitteh evah was a tuxedo girl she gots when she was three and she liveds to be ovah 20 years old!!!!
Rumpy: Wow, that’s OLD!
Joey: Mommy all da sudden thoughts she wanteds a tuxedo again but dis times a boy! Well she calleds Cats Off Broadway and asked iffen dey hads any wee tuxedo boys and dey saids YES! So she droves ovah der and she seens one dat was too wee to adopts yet but she jus din’ts feel it anyhows and wanteds to wait for MUH foster bean to brings me. She waiteds and waiteds long time cuz I was hidings!!!
Finally I gots der and she tooks one look at me and fells in loveses! Can’ts blame her – even at 8 weeks I was already ridiculously good-lookings. She sets me downs in da grass and I marched ovah to a cage of BEEG dogs and I gaveses dem MUH most fierce halloween cat pose wid beeg tail and stucks MUH paw thru da cage at dem! Mommy said dat sealed da deal!!!
Rumpy: You sure were a daring little guy!

Joey: I likes MUH hoomans a lots! Dey plays wid me and lets me climbs in da Kissmas tree! Dey even hides toys in da branches for me to finds and figures out how to gets!!! I guesses da beegest complaints dat I has is dat Labor Day in 2010 when Mommy lefts da house and droves for 9 hours and cames back wid Landry. He okay I guesses but he always fulls of da poo and very annoyings. And I duns like it dat I can’ts get into da bathroom when MUH poorents is in der. I needs to surpervises!
Rumpy: Yeah, Jen says she’s never used the bathroom alone. Well tell us what treats these humans give ya?
Joey: MUH favorites treats is Western Mixes Pawty Mix! (Mommy says it really calleds Party Mix – Wild West Crunch)
Rumpy: Yeah, I hear alot of the kitties like that. Now you’ve been using social media for awhile now. Which outlets do you use?
Joey: I duns dones does Twitter or a blog, but tanks to da new Timeline I knows for a fact dat I joineds Facebooks on May 20, 2009. I mets MUH best furriend, Woody Edens, on May 25th and we has been bestest furriends furrevah since!

Hey Joey. It’s nice meeting you! You look like my friend Austin. He’s also a tuxedo cat in his senior years.
I actually didn’t know Tuxedo cats were a breed. I just realized it now. Did Joey really strut his stuff in front of those giant dogs? That’s one brave kitty.
Huggies and Cheese,

Hello Joey. Lovely to see you being interviewed by Rumpy. See you on Facebook. Love Charlie xxx
*waves at Charlie*
I had NO idea there were tuxedo cats! You sure are handsome and a very blessed cat, as I am sure you realize!
They’re mighty plentiful here in the US. In fact, we have 3 that visit our yard occasionally begging for a handout.
Da best part of beings a tuxedo (like your penguins) is dat we’re always ready for a pawty!
Joey, you dad needs to put a tattoo of Magz on her mom!!
i thinkz he doez too MMM!!!
Oh Dog! Now THAT would be pawsome!
Hi Joey! !!! U r insanely good looking, beautiful tuxedo. So happy u have new home
Watch out Maggie! You read what he did to them big dogs when he was just a baby!
I like Mr. Fritsch because it is very similar to my own (German) name Frits …
hmmmmm…. I wonder if you’re related???
Oooooo!!!!!! MUH daddy is first-generation American, but his Daddy cames from Germany to liveses here! He cames from Meisbach (sp?)!!!!!!

Hi Joey! I think tuxedo cats are SOOOO elegant looking and if I wasn’t so gingerly handsome I’d want to wear a permanent tuxedo too!
I know… they’re always dressed for the occasion, aren’t they?
You are all amazing… and how movely Joey and lucky one too. Thank you dear Rumpy, have a great day, with my love, nia

I love your interviews Rumpy! Joey, you are just beautiful! It is good to get to know you!
Joey has got the looks AND the personality! woo woo woo!
What a clever post! I love the interview format! Such a sweetie, Joey is!
He reminds me of one of the foster kittens my kids have taken care of in Nebraska. They raise them until they are 2 lbs and then they are up for adoption. I just love to visit them so I can play with the kitties! Who needs TV or electronics when you can watch 3-5 kittens chase each other, hide in boxes and play with your hair from the back of the couch? Give Joey a cuddle for me!
Thanks for visiting Judy, and thanks to you and your family for helping those kitties!
Purrrrrr I loveses cuddles and playings wid straws!
You sure are Cute !!!!!!! I love the animal talk mixed with sweetness through “human ” talk xoxoxo Much love xxx Meow !!!!!! xx

Joey looks just like my Maxwell! Max has a little brush of black on his lower left jaw that makes it look like he’s got a cigarette or cigar in his mouth, but besides that- twins. Max is even small for his age. I doubt he even weighs ten pounds. Last time we weighed him in it was eight. He’s a lovely blighter and so darn smart. Tuxedo cats are very intelligent and they really bond with you.
Oh Dog! More than a dog????
I agree! Max must be very very handsome!!!! I is a very social kitteh wid MUH mommy and daddy (kinda needy when I want tentions) and I loveses to play and I is smarts!
That’s one snazzy kitty. Enjoyed the interview.
Thanks! woo woo woo!!!!
Nice to meet you Joey – you have the most gorgeous eyes – you look like a cat with attitude! Glad you got a fur-ever home with your hoomans.
He sure is a good-looking kitty!
My mama says tuxedo cats are cool cause she used to have one named Tobias. His best friend was a guinea pig named Miss Trixie and they used to sleep together. If they were alive I would probably bark and try to chase them but then mama be mad…
, great interview Rumpy!
awwwww…. that’s so sweet! And Benny, I bet once you all got used to each other you’d leave ’em alone. I do!
Great interview, and great story. Joey is beautiful! As always, it’s heartening to learn about a successful adoption from a rescue group. The comment section is just as entertaining as the interview! Wonderful group of followers you have, Rumpy!
Thanks so much and welcome back!!!!
We love Joey in Champaign!

My person says she used to have a cat that looked a lot like Joey. She says her cat was very nice. I bet Joey is too. (Did I say that about a cat?)
