Katie, hes gorgeous. And I love the bib and Tucker reference. My kitty is very much like yours, only we are not so smart with names, hes plain old Tuxedo. And he did the kitten care too when he was a stray at my Mom's. Your Tucker looks like a real sweetie.

Tucker is adorable and definitely the name "President" suits him! Isn't it funny how they teach the kittens how to behave proplerly!!!! One big Siamese I had even let the kittens we took in nurse on him - he had the equipment, it just didn't work, and he got a free tummy rub to boot!

President Tucker - you are in charge now!!!!

Katie. Sorry about your loss. I lost my "baby" last April. She was 10 yrs. Came in to find her in distress which she died hours later from a stroke. It was heartbreaking. I still look for her when I come home from work.

And Tucker certainly was a handsome one.

So sorry. It's hard to lose a friend like that.

What a handsome gentleman he was and from the sounds of it lived a very long and happy life. I know it must have been hard to lose him.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Yes, expat. He had a wonderful life and was loved by all the outside kitties. He was such a gentle giant. Never aggressive. A peacemaker really. He very much disliked strife and disagreement. He clearly loved Buck and me, which is one of his qualities we'll miss the most. Well, at least, he's in Heaven with his friends who went before him. Especially his mommy, Sugar Mommy, who was the most fabulous kitty mommy Buck and I have ever known.

Oh, I am so sorry. That is so sad. I have a few too many cats but even one of them died in my arms I'd be devastated. My heart goes out to you.

It would be hard to lose a kitty that way, but at least in your arms he left knowing he was loved. It had to be comforting to him.

Im so sorry, Katie! My Julia just turned 13. She's an indoor kitty. I couldn't imagine life without her.

Not good at posting pix, but here's a link to my girl....

i thought this might be appropriate, k.t.e and buck.

sorry to hear of tucker's passing. i hope he's toying with mice through sunny fields of catnip, as we speak.
