On Tuesday, January 27, 2015 our sweet Takei lost his fight against cancer. After a failed and traumatizing attempt to feed him his daily dose of chemotherapy on Monday, his decline accelerated. His breathing, ever more labored, showed us he was truly suffering. By Tuesday he had also begun expressing his pain with despondent meows. […]
Prologue September 14, 2014: We’re walking around Fall Creek enjoying PorchFest, eventually stopping to watch and listen to popular local group The Gunpoets along with what seems like most of the PorchFest attendees. At their performance we run into Dr. Rassnick, the Colonial Veterinary Hospital oncologist that took care of Pilgrim when he was dealing with […]
This is a guest blog post by Mr. Tuxedo Cat I love doughnuts. One of the great joys of my childhood was helping my mom pick out the dozen rings of fried goodness we were going to bring home to the family from Dunkin’ Donuts. In time I came to learn the pleasures of even higher quality, […]
“There are only two kinds of people in the world. The Irish and those who wish they were.” – Irish Saying While I know that St. Patrick’s Day is a mostly Irish-American phenomenon, it was something I’ve enjoyed celebrating in a very green way from my childhood until now. When I was in grade school, […]
Stay With Us in Ithaca!
I was spoiled!
Staying with Amber and Ducson was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. All of the food they prepared for me was exquisitely delicious. They spoiled me like I’ve never been spoiled before. They made me feel appreciated with their lovely hospitality. They both have warm, friendly smiles. They are very polite and […]
Feels Like Home
I spent the last year of my life on the road for Vegan Outreach, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to reducing the suffering of farmed animals by promoting informed, ethical eating. While traveling, I stayed with strangers from all over the United States and Canada. I slept in beds, on couches, and on floors in […]
Amber and Duc are a charming pair of hosts. They’ll make sure you’re comfortable and have everything you need, down to the slightest detail. Plus, Amber is an amazing vegan chef and will go out of her way to accommodate other special diets. When I told her I wasn’t eating gluten, salt, or oil, she […]
The Tuxedo Cat B&B is the only way I can imagine visiting Ithaca. A beautiful home only steps away from the heart of the city and yet in the middle of country. Downtown is full of art, theater, dining, dancing, shopping and more to cater to any interest. Duc and Amber were more than willing […]
Love the Cats
I’ve stayed at the Tuxedo Cat Bed and Breakfast and it feels like family. Amber and Duc are so welcoming and friendly. I also cannot forget to mention their oh so loving kitties who slept by our feet throughout the night. From the moment we walked in I felt right at home, with slippers being […]
I’ve been the fortunate guest of Amber on many occasions over the past few years, and her culinary creations are simply delicious. Both she and Duc are the epitome of hospitality, and they are all about making you feel welcome in their home. I recommend Tuxedo Cat B&B to anyone seeking gracious hosts and wonderful […]
I have stayed at Amber and Duc’s B&B several times during college tours for my job. I have toured the country going to over 500 colleges the last 6 years, staying on the road for over 2300 nights, and when people ask me my favorite place in America, Ithaca is always my first answer. The […]
