I firmly believe that the book below is why I love tuxedo cats so dearly. My father would read it to me, over and over. I loved this little cat. I always wanted to name my cats Tinker, but of course it is now considered a perjorative term, as is another one often used in my family for their dogs, Gypsy.
I loved this book, and little Tinker, so much that I basically wore it out and have only the scanned pages below left. BUT, I found a copy on Amazon the other day and it is on its way to me as we speak. Apart from slight foxing, it looks to be in pretty good shape!
