This review is in direct response to the change in my life that STAR (Stamford Animal Rescue) has been able to provide in my personal life. I reside in my home alongside my younger brother who has Moderate-Severe Autism and Neurological disorders. Throught his childhood, my brother has led a somewhat difficult life with the inability to interact well with others his age and lacked the social ability to reach out to any individual in his life! This changed two years ago in a drastic manner! A family friend of ours was the owner of three beautiful kitties! One was Blade, the other Princess, and the third, in particular, was especially attached to my brother, his name is TUX! Tux is a long-haired, black/white tuxedo Manx kitty! He does not have a tail. This fascinated my little brother to the extreme!! He was so intrigued by how soft and fluffy appeared, and most of all he was intrigued by his lack of a tail, which is a genetic trait of his breed. Tux was immediately attached to my brother. Our family friend decided that Tux would be better off in my home alongside my brother. It was settled, Tux moved in with cat carrier and litter box. He decided to make my brother's room, his own. Unfortunately, until this point in my life, I have had numerous expenses that were out of pocked, therefore, caring for Tux was somewhat of a burden! After a year I found out about STAR and through their Pet Food Pantry, I realized that Tux will not be a burden on our family. The kitty food and litter provided to us by STAR has truly allowed me to comfortably keep Tux in our family, because I honestly can not see a life without him in our household.
