Tuxedo Stan’s 2018 Tree of Hope

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 will be our 6th Tree of Hope since we began the tradition in 2013.

Tuxedo Stan’s 2017 Tree of Hope with over 150 ornaments!

All proceeds from Tuxedo Stan’s 2017 Tree of Hope will be used to address cat over-population in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

If you would like to hang an ornament on the tree CLICK HERE.

Thank you and we wish you a safe and peaceful holiday season.

Check back regularly to view the ornaments. We will be updating the blog daily until December 25, 2018.

  1. Thank you for doing this-great way to help receive funding for other cats, yet inexpensive for participants. I found my Bear and homeless cat.


  2. Just added to the tree for 2 of my cats Beckiegirl and Victoria – miss them always and think of them so much around Xmas time, as they loved to be photographed with their little santa hat. They were always good sports about it.


  3. I remember the 1st Tree of Hope with the mini minions. I still have the ones you placed on the tree that year for us. Unfortunately I have had other kitties ‘placed’ on the tree since then. I think it is wonderful that you not only put up a tree with 5 cats and 2 dogs (we gave up in 2010) but that you fill your tree with the names of pets of strangers. I knew you were special people when you help Tuxedo Stan for Mayor but year by year I learn how extraordinary you actually are. If I lived closer in would totally help make kitties for next year’s tree. Or squeaky bad mice. But not Hats for Cats. I can sew but not sure I can knit/crochet. If you ever wanna expand the Tuxedo Party out west to Alberta I have 5 kitties and 2 humans who would be willing to help!


  4. I lost two sweet babies this year. Lily and Rudy. I just ordered ornaments in their names and really appreciate all the effort Tuxedo Stan does to help out the homeless kitties.
    thank you very much and Merry Christmas!
