Top, Aristotle makes himself at home for a nap. Bottom, Mr. B.W. Tux cuddles with Socrates
Congratulations to Aristotle, Socrates and Mr. B.W. Tux, this month’s Pet Photo of the Month winners.

These 1-year-old brothers and their father live with their human, Aspacia Becatoros and two other kitty siblings in Largo.

Mr. B.W. Tux, was an unneutered feral cat that Becatoros had helped for about a year. He showed pregnant Mamma Mia where to get food at Becatoros’s house, and with much patience, grew to trust this human.

The kittens that survived are Socrates and Aristotle. Save Our Strays helped catch the kitty family and spay and neuter all of them. By then, Mamma Mia was tame, and the kittens loved interacting with Becatoros. Sadly, Mamma Mia later died, but Becatoros adopted Aristotle, Socrates and their dad.

Aristotle was the first to come in the house and meet Becatoros’s Siamese, Adorinda. When Aristotle walked inside, he immediately went over to her toy box, helped himself to a rubber ball and batted it around. Soon he came by to spend the night, and after several weeks, his brother worked up the nerve to come inside, too. After a few months, Mr. B.W. Tux came inside, too, and now rarely wants to go outside except to take walks with Becatoros. He took over the mothering duties and is extremely protective of his kids.

As winners, they have won a $25 gift certificate to Largo Feed and Garden Supply in either Largo or Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.
