We’ve are in the midst of kitchen renovations so I haven’t been on any photo adventures lately so I thought I’d look through my library of images of Tuxedo Stan. For those of you who haven’t heard of him, he was a little tuxedo cat who became the “spokescat” for a group called the Tuxedo Party of Canada. He campaigned for Mayor of Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2012 and quickly became an international superstar. His photos have appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines & blogs. He’s even featured in two National Geographic Kids books and he appears on the cover of a veterinary textbook!

Sadly, Tuxedo Stan succumbed to kidney cancer at the young age of 3 1/2 years. His brother, Earl Grey, continues his legacy fighting to improve the lives of cats.

Here is a selection of his photos from 2010-2011. Many of these have never been published.

  1. It’s difficult to pick a favourite from these, but the winter shot of Stan on the limb says so much of his personality
    And the shot and he and Earl eating is priceless 😂 Love the look on his face, ” not the darn camera again, can’t you see we’re busy!”
    An incredible cat, a lasting legacy. He will always be my inspiration to help those cats less fortunate. ❤️💕❤️


  2. Ah, so beautiful. Miss seeing updates of him. I cried so hard when you announced his death…between him and Hank and Colonel Meow, I shed many tears for beloved internet cats. 🙂 Much love for Earl Grey and TJ and the others.
