Sweet Puss


This weekend, we remember mums sweet girl Puss.

About 7 years ago, this wee tabby girl climbed through the lounge window and came up for a cuddle. Everytime mum said 'hello Puss', she would chirp back at her. She was skinny and her paws were dirty, and it looked like she lived rough. So after a week, mum caved in and fed her and she moved in. Just like that. So if anybuddy is missing a sweet tabbycat, mum is sorry for stealing her. She let Puss use the cat door, so she could go home if she had one, and mum checked all the lost ads and called the SPCA, just in case.

Puss liked eating, she loved peoples food and always wanted to see what you had on your plate. One of her favorites was potato chips!! Yum yum!!

She liked to talk to mum, and loved to come for a cuddle. Puss loved visitors too, but like me was scared of big uncle. When he came to stay she would hide in the garden across the road.

The vet thought Puss was about 10 years old, and we always wonder about her earlier life and who she lived with before she came to make mum happy.

Puss we miss you, but know you are having fun at the bridge. We'll meet again sweet girl.

  1. Sweet Puss was very beautiful. And she sounds like she lived up to her name quite well.

    That is pretty much how our Uncle Allen got our cousin Cosmo Kitty. He just showed up in the yard one day and never wanted to leave. And 5 years later, he still hasn't.

  6. Just look at those sweet, soft eyes and lovely face. What a beauty. She just radiates love.
    And we're just mad for a cat that talks.
    She brought the gifts of love and happiness into your home and received them in return. What a happy ending.

  16. Hello Sweet Puss...maybe you are playing at the Bridge with our sweet guardian angel kitties?

    That's how most of our family has arrived here...just showed up and never left. That's how it went for Ginger, Jonesie, Bennette, Nigel and Cecilia.

  20. I'm a sucker for kitties as it is. I've had 3 find their way to me, only one of them is not with me now. Our pets definitely choose us, especially cats. Sweet Puss was adorable though, and I'm sure she's having one heck of a time playing with an endless supply of toys!

  23. What a beauty! She was one lucky kit cat to find your mom. Cats know instinctively who to love.

  24. Your mum must have needed Puss to come stay with her, that's why she came through the window that day.
