Puff-kitty

























Puff-Kitty Silhouette was a stray in our neighborhood back in October of 1997... At the time we had recently lost our 14 year old Siberian Husky and I had never had a cat own me before. Puffy started to hang around our house and was obviously homeless... She pled with us to open that door and let her in... So I looked for a good home for her. I was teaching 5th grade at the time and one of my students lived on big dairy farm and her mom was a vet tech. They agreed to take her... but on the evening I had a box ready for her trip to the farm, my husband Randy said... NOT JUST YET!!! For this reason and many more she adores Randy!!! Little did we know what a wonderful member of the family she would become and almost 10 years later she is the self-PURRoclaimed Feline Evangelist of our 8 cats... We adored her so much that we adopted 3 barn cats, then 3 Maine Coons and bred a litter of Maine Coons keeping one... if not for Puff... we would have never had a cat! We celebrate Puff’s birthday as October 31st 1996... although we are unsure of when it truly is or where she really came from... She is a mystery! -Carm C.

Yeah Puff!!! You did the kitty conquering plan many good deeds, as this helpless (against you) bean family was overwhelmed by your darling self and now is completely enslaved to your essential kitty nature...hehehe! Viva la Kitty revolution!!!

What a wonderful story. Look what that little girl did all by herself! And you've adopted a lot of cats... good job!

Puff, you are gorgeous and you look quite fluffy. Your humans are so lucky that you came along when you did. Otherwise, they might have lived their whole lives without a kitty! Its a good thing you rescued them!

Ahhhh - I'm in love! She looks like my kitties, but with a fluffier tail. (I checked out the Catster page - great pictures!) Such a wonderful story too.

Loved this story, because it was Daddy that wanted to keep her. Look what you did Puff kitty, you made a cat lover out of the whole lot of them. Now you have all kinds of puddy tats to keep you company. You are a very pretty sweetheart.
