Crazy Cat Lady Carm". Not only was Puff-Kitty one of the eight, she was the first. Before Puffy came along, the Coles were "dog people", and had never owned a cat. Puff-Kitty was a stray who came to their home in October of 1997. They took her in, figuring they'd find her a good home, but little did they know Puffy had plans to adopt them -- and she succeeded. At first they thought Puffy was a boy kitty, and was named Puff-Daddy, but once they discovered she was a girl, her named was changed to Puff-Kitty.
And this was the beginning of Carm becoming a "Cat Lady". Her love for cats blossomed into the all-consuming thing it is today, and Carm is forever grateful to Puffy for introducing her into the wonderful world of felines. As Puffy was passing, Carm and Randy told her how much they loved her, and thanked her for changing their lives for the better.
Here are a few pictures of Puff-Kitty Silhouette, to help us all remember her by.
Puff-Kitty was a real black beauty with gorgeous golden eyes.
She made a lovely silhouette in any kind of light.
This is Puffy in her younger days, with her brother Moony in the background.
This was Puff-Kitty's favourite place to be -- on her Daddy's lap.
Puffy was a ladycat of mystery. She came out of nowhere.
She was good-natured enough to let her Mom dress her up for any occasion.
She loved just hanging out with her sisters and Dad.
And joining in with the rest on the regular 8GR8CATS nipfests.
This is Puff-Kitty on her 13th birthday -- appropriately enough, it was Hallowe'en!
Now, Puffy has joined the host of light fairies. She's going to come back to visit her furmily from time to time just to check in on them. She is well and happy on the Rainbow Bridge, but her loved ones still need reassurance.
Puff-Kitty was sister to Tommy, Candy, Moony, Sunny, Joy, Pride and Furby, and first kitty of Carm and Randy Cole. They will miss her dearly, as will Dante, Dylan, Domino and I.
Puff-Kitty Silhouette had a wonderful life. She gave and received so much love, and that love will never die. Fare well, sweet girl.
