Facts About Tuxedo Cats

Did you know that tuxedo cats are 200% smarter than other cats? That the first cat in the new world was a Tuxedo cat named Asgerd aboard a Viking ship, or that the largest inheritance given a cat was to a tuxedo? Learn more amazing bits of fact and/or fiction about tuxedo cats, as researched and verified by Dr. Magrathea Wallace (A stunning Tuxie in her own right.)

I was amazed and mystified to read some of these facts, although friends owned by tuxedos may agree with many of them. Thanks to Dr. Wallace and her personal assistant, Randy Wallace, for taking the time to assemble and submit these facts.

One fact, which is indisputable, is that tuxedo cats are stunning, with their white bibs and spats against their sleek black coats and tails. The combination, of course, is how the term “tuxedo” was first coined.
