    As someone else quoted on the Tuxedo Party page, from Doctor Who, “This song is ending, but the story never ends.” We are so saddened by the loss of Stan, but so grateful for all he achieved in his short life. We know Earl Grey will be a dedicated and diligent leader of the Tuxedo Party, and we will work with him. jodi and the fur kids: Loki, Mungus, Doodle and Tiny Timbit. And of course, Minion Doctor.

  30. Rest in Peace dear Stanley

  31. Jen Proctor says:

    Such terrible news! It is amazing how much public attention he brought to the feline over population issue. He has served his species well. He has done more with his life than many people have. He was a very special kitty and from what I’ve seen he had a very luxurious lifestyle. I hope you can take some comfort in knowing how how much of an impact he has had on humans and cats alike. Also that you have given him and his brother the best home they could hope for. I wish Earl the best in continuing the campaign and am very sorry for your loss.

  32. Tom says:

    Rest well little one. Your contribution to this world in a few short years was immense.
    On October 8th vote for Earl.

  33. Marina says:

    Hugh & Kathy and the Catopia Gang,

    Crying with you and hope it eases your pain.
    For Stan, I will buy my Xmas presents in his shop.

  34. Hugh says:

    WOW! Lots of love and support from far and wide. Thank you all for taking the time to leave a message. We miss Stan more than you can imagine but we are keeping busy with Earl Grey’s campaign for premier. As Stan would say “because neglect still isn’t working!”

  35. Katie, Annabelle and Earl says:

    RIP Tuxedo Stan. We have only discovered your cause recently but it is a mighty one. Fight on Earl Grey in Stan’s name… Fight on!
