Tuxedo Stan’s World Tour – Houston

Minion Tuxedo Alexandra was dispatched to Houston, Texas under the care of Rikki Raflo.

Rikki has sent some lovely photos of Alexandra’s adventure at the Friends For Life Shelter.

I’ll let Rikki give you the guided tour:

The shelter is free roam for the cats.  Alexandra is looking for Snickers who is hiding in one of the cat cubby boxes.



There is a special room for Leukemia positive cats.  Here Oliver and Cheezit are vying for her affection.

Romeo was returned to a kill shelter with his brother at 13 hers old as he was diabetic.  He was saved and lives a nice life in the senior room.



Just her size…motherless kittens who have been bottle fed since six days old.



At the Sustainable Living Fair, she is kissed by Mr. T. Even dogs love her!

Oh no, dog drool!

What a sales cat!  She helped raise money for homeless cats.
