Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Jan 29, 2016
Puzzle was a stray kitten when my parents had first found him in the harsh winter. He was adopted only 5 months after I was born, so he was a cat that I had the privilege to grow up with and the reason I love cats in my adult age so much.
He was a beautiful ginger coated short hair and we believe he was a domestic short hair after much comparison. Throughout his life, he was always lively, active and super friendly. He was very vocal and was the textbook definition of a 'lap cat'; always lovely and always looking to snuggle.
His personality came through a history of love and attention from our family, he never bit and only scratched if he was startled. He was the center of attention whenever we had people over and always left good impressions.
Despite costing a fair amount to maintain, (litter, food, healthcare) he was worth every penny. Even when he departed, he left us behind warm memories that we still cherish to this day.
I recommend cats to anyone who wants a loving pet who loves to snuggle, can be left alone to wander the home, is easily litter trained and who loves to play.
