Tuxedo Stan was only with us for 3 1/2 years, however his dream of a world where cats are treated with respect and compassion lives on.
Every holiday season we decorate our tree with cat ornaments in memory of beloved pets so that everyone can share in his dream.
This season we were able to place over 150 ornaments on Tuxedo Stan’s 2015 Tree of Hope!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event. We hope to do it again next December.

I just purchased 2 ornaments for the tree of hope. Didn’t see where to put in my kitty boys names… One is for Sir Zed, our sweet tuxedo boy who passed in April. The other is for Mr. Spock, our fluffy sookie ginger boy who passed in July. This was not a good year for us.
Sir Zed loved green, could he please have a green kitty? And with Mr. Spock having been a warm ginger color could he have a ginger kitty?

I would like to order 2; one in loving memory of my precious Tommy, who I lost on Dec 18th, 2012, the other in loving memory of my precious Puddin whom I lost on Jan 22, 2015.
Will send $ to spayday. Thanks
I would like Tommy’s to be gray and Puddin’s to be black if possible.
I couldn’t find the instructions part either. Maybe lack of sleep due to new kitten. Anyway, this year, once again, Noahthecat needs to be remembered. Joining him, is his 20 year old sister Kechara, a dilute tortie, full of tortitude, but very sweet she passed away in November, leaving a space in our lives Thanks for doing this
Hi, I have the same problem, no place to leave the names, must be missing it when it comes up. I ordered 4 (2 for me and 2 for Barbi)
My kitties are Twister and Girley
Barbi’s are Salem and Tubby
3 were Siamese and 1 grey so colour doesn’t matter and only Salem was a boy!
Oops! Sorry about that. 🙂
Thank you so much for doing this again. It means so much. I purchased 5. I would like to honor Selena and Sydney again and as I feared last year at this time we lost our precious Shasta. I’d like to honor 5 year old Silk who has been battling mammary cancer for almost 2 years now. And we lost our 14 1/2 year old orange and white boy, Socks, to heart failure about a week ago. I’d like to offer my condolences to everyone honoring a special pet including Stan. And I hope Kathy will feel well enough to enjoy the holidays.
Hello – Please add me to that list of “where do I put the name?”! Our dear old girl was “Amber”. Thanks for all that you do and hugs for Earl and TJ!
Thank you for all you do for the cats! I purchased 3 ornaments: 1 in memory of Cinder, our first cat who was with us for 16 years; 1 in memory of Monroe who we lost to kidney disease the day after her 11th birthday; and 1 in honour of Mr. Murphy, Monroe’s litter mate, who is still with us ruling the roost at 14!
I purchased two of your ornaments for my cats Kacey and Rosie that have passed. Both, Dr. Chisholm helped go to their heavenly homes. thanks for all you guys do. you are the best.!
I just ordered two ornaments. One for my friend Renee who just recently lost her sweet young orange and white boy cat to cancer. His name was Beau. The other in memory of my dear black boy cat Sooty. Hope Kathy feels well to enjoy the holidays with your wonderful feline family!
Thanks for the two ornaments for my beloved kitties . Made me cry to see them and reminds me how they are missed . MY three boys I have now are a blessing .
PayPal accepted my second card; for Mudita [Lovingkindness in
Sanskrit] which he was the embodiment of; and Wild Casablanca Lily,
who was white and deaf and 3 1/2 legged, who was my teacher of peace.
As all above are saying, I miss them both so very much.
Could Lily have a white one, because that was so much a part of her being?
Mudita was grey and white tabby but he wouldn’t care: he has too much
presence for just one color.
Also much concern and good wishes for Kathy with her physical problems.
Hi everyone, I just paid for 4 ornaments
Twister,Girlie, Tubby & Salem
Next tree I will have new names for some other kitties I once owned
