For a long time, I haven’t written about my cats. Today I thought of telling you the story of Tzutzu, nicknamed Figaro, another cat of mine. He is my eleventh kitten. His story closely resembles the stories of all my cats.
He came to us in September 2001. He was about three months old. I say, “he came to us”, we didn’t adopt him from somewhere. Proof that cats choose you and not the other way around.
Tzutzu, nicknamed Figaro, another cat of mine
became a gentle and loving kitten. May be because it received with family love and by the cats we already had.
When she came to our house, I had a cat that had little chicks, Little Jessie. Figaro was a little older but didn’t hesitate to suck along with the other cat chicks: Julie, Husky and Niki. I already told you their story.
I had a girlfriend, who happened to called Carmen. A great cat lover. To this day he has a lot of cats. She greatly loved Tzutzu and nicknamed Figaro. Since then, his name has remained.
The cat, in general, is a mysterious and unpredictable animal. Her innate behavior cannot, by and large, changed. It is up to us to influence their attitude and reactions well.
We already had a pretty rich experience growing cats (did you remember? Figaro is my eleventh kitten). So I made no mistakes in his education. I also cultivated the smallest tolerance for the rest of the cats in the house.

At the block
I lived in the block and didn’t leave it outside. Overall he was a good guy. Except for the climbing of the curtains lol.
His life spent sleeping, playing with my other kittens, eating and washing, for two years. He had a principle:” if I was a man with him, he was a tomcat with me ” lol.
He loves reading. I mean, he was crazy when someone in the family read. He nestled in the chest of the “reader” and drew an “intellectual” sleep.
In the autumn of 2002, Figaro neutered. It is minimal suffering but in the long term, it helps to be healthy and not to take part in the battles specific to the riots. From these battles, they can leave wounded.
Moving to the house
In November 2003 we moved to a house with a yard and garden. I wanted this especially for our cats, which have multiplied over the years. The space we had at the block had become insufficient for our cats. For a psyche to live comfortably, at least 5 square meters recommended.
The move itself I described in other articles in which I write the story of a cat of mine. I think it is no longer necessary to recount. If you want, you can read the stories about my cats in the category “personal stories with my cats“.
We settled in the new house. We had to get her close to cats from the beginning. For them, it is a great stress to change the house. We knew this and we did so that the stress of the cats was minimal. I surrounded them with love and patience. Thus, they understood that they would be as good as before they moved.
Also, they had more play space.
We moved in November. Over the winter the cats remained only in the house.
Living at home
As it warmed up, I left the cats outside, in the yard and the garden. At first, they were shy, including Figaro.
I don’t know if you know the behavior of a cat in an unknown environment. She moves in small circles, trying to get to know the environment. Then it moves in ever-larger circles. It should not rush or sudden.
Thus, Figaro began to know the surroundings slowly, slowly. I was very happy to see that he could go out in the yard and into the garden.
It was a beautiful spring. Figaro chose after butterflies, smelled the flowers. Sometimes the sun is dull. Play with the other cats. Everything went smoothly. He was a good and loving kitten.
But nature has spoken its word. Figaro escaped from the yard. My last memory is with Figaro sleeping in our bed,
on the morning of November 7, 2004. On that bad day, one of my kittens returned home beaten, although he was very peaceful. It happened at 6 in the morning. Fortunately, he escaped. Another kitten of mine, Tzuky, got back under my car, very hurt. Figaro disappeared completely and since then I have not seen him.
I called the veterinarian immediately. Unfortunately, Tzuky, shortly after the arrival of the veterinarian, died in my arms. On that day, I suspect one of our neighbors from then on tried to harm them.
After what happened, we secured the yard, so that my cats could not escape. But for Figaro and Tzuky, it was too late.
Figaro stayed with us a bit and had the same fate as Husky.
He left me beautiful memories, but unfortunately, he disappeared prematurely.
We wrote this article in the memory of Figaro, a sensitive and loving fur baby who lived in our house and only gave us joy.
You are a cat lover. You have one or more. If you stay in the yard, as far as possible, ensure the yard so that the cat (your cats) cannot escape. She is a curious animal of wires and a hunter at the same time. It will try to “conquer” the new territories. But do not forget that dangers hang it at every turn. Dogs, cars, bad neighbors. It is advisable to protect against these dangers.
If you stay in the block, you must take great care that your cat does not leave the house. Only with you and leash.
I would be happy to leave a comment, to share your experience with cats. Or tell me your opinion about the article. Thank you.
You can now learn to communicate directly with your cat.
