Our four Tuxes each have their own distinct personalities, but they are all very
affectionate...all it takes is a loving look and they'll start purring
Mr. Underfoot (in sig photo - Tux boy, 11) is my "puppycat" because he follows me around like a puppy. He's a total love bug and lap cat, very affectionate, always wanting to be held and carried around. He's also an expert at finding food - we have to be very careful to keep all food items sealed up, because he can turn doorknobs and open doors and cabinets, and will quickly tear into anything left where he can get to it.
Oreo (DH's Tux boy, 11) - my husband used to think was a standoffish cat (he'd always thought cats were naturally standoffish, and didn't realize they could be so affectionate). After he met my cats and saw how loving cats can be, he started giving Oreo more affection. Oreo just blossomed with the attention and is now very affectionate too. He's not so big on being held, though he likes it more as he gets older. He's become a lap cat.
Felixia (Tux girl, 18) is very sweet and affectionate too, and loves to be held and to ride around on my shoulder. She can turn grumpy in a heartbeat if one of the other cats gets too close, though (I think she'd rather be an only cat). She's a lap cat too - she & Mr. Underfoot get in little arguments over who gets to sit on my lap while I'm on the computer. One will get to my lap first, then the other will jump up and lay on top of the first cat.
Sylvestra (Tux girl, 11) is a total mushpot just like her brother Mr. Underfoot. She'll get so happy when we pet her that she'll flop over in ecstacy, purring like crazy, and grab my hand if I stop petting her. She'll also just walk up and start petting herself on my hand. She likes to be carried around too, but for some reason she's not a lap cat - she'd rather just sit beside me (maybe because Mr. & Felixia are usually fighting over the lap?). She's very
talkative - sometimes I think she's a Siamese dressed in a tuxedo.
