Here is the last of the first grouping of cats and dogs that I have cared for.
Puffer was 2 months shy of 20 years when he went to kitty heaven. He was about 16 lbs. He was also a ratter and I saw him kill one once. It was Wild Kingdom that day. He was quite the presence! I called him my Lion Kitty because he was very much lion-like in many ways and even a little dangerous!
Sneakers and Ebony are a whole new world compared to the cats and dogs that I have known but it is now a year and a couple of months and we are becoming a family. They are getting to know us and getting to understand our ways. They are 11 years old so transitioning has been a tough go of it for them. The lady at the Seattle Humane Society was correct. She told me it would take a good year and that is true. So if you adopt be prepared for it to take a year before you come to be a family. It also depends on the cat and what happened to them before. In this case Sneakers adapted much more quickly than Ebony. Sneakers is a very happy cat and friendly. He has his problems but he is basically the sweetest cat I have ever known. Ebony is shy and he was sick when he came home with us and it took a good 6 months to get him back to health and happiness. He doesn’t go hide in the bedroom as much. I cannot compare the other cats to these two indoor raised kittens. It is a whole new world and adventure to see these two cats blossom and become happy and healthy.
So was Puffer a coon cat?
