Fred & Crazy Dazy

by Michelle
(Calgary, AB, Canada)

I have two tuxedo cats. Fred is an old man, he's 12 years and we have had him since he was 4 years. I just got Dazy in March for my daughter since her other cat ran away, she's almost 6 months old now. We call her Crazy Dazy since she's a little wierd. She is very hyper and loves to attack Fred for no reason at all and she plays with my daughter by hiding behind things and then running out at her, she's very fast. Both of my tuxedo cats hate being held so I find it very funny that people think they are affectionate, I would like to meet a Tuxedo cat that likes to be held and cuddled. Every time any one of us (except my daughter) pick Dazy up to cuddle her she growls and hisses at us until we put her down or she jumps from our arms. Fred doesn't growl or hiss but he stiffens up when we pick him up and he pushes to get away. Other than that, these are very smart cats. Fred is very vocal when he wants to go outside or go to bed (he sleeps with me). Dazy is more vocal than Fred all the time, and she likes to grab one piece of her food with her paw and chase it around the kitchen before she eats it. Dazy also likes to make me mad, she knows that she is not allowed around the plant in the living room and does it on purpose because as soon as I say her name she runs away from it but she will come back again and again, taunting me. Me and my kids love our cats and wouldn't trade them for cuddly ones...haha.

Dazy, Dazy Give Me Your Answer Do!
by: Jean in Tennessee

That Dazy is one cute little kitty! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story of Fred and Crazy Dazy. Hopefully Fred will be able to have a "calming and positive" effect on Dazy -- he looks like he is a fine fellow indeed.

My white cat Star doesn't like to be held or picked up either and does the exact same thing: Strongly and loudly yowling in protest and pushing away. But then she comes right back and rubs against my legs as if to say "I don't like to cuddle but I DO like you!" and that's what matters, isn't it?

Fred and Crazy Dazy are both lovely cats and I hope you have many years of happy living with them, even if they don't like to cuddle!

What a cute pair they make

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for sharing Fred and Crazy Dazy's story (and pictures). They look like they have lots of fun together. I find it interesting that they're not your typical "cuddlers".

You know, my cat Max (a tabby) is affectionate with my sister, my mom and myself. But he doesn't like being picked up or carried by others, not even my brother whom he knows very well!
