Fuzzy is a beautiful tuxedo cat with cute white front paws and stunning green eyes. Everything I know about her age is guesswork, since my sister found her on the side of the road as a kitten. When she first came to the family, my father was unsure if we should keep her because she was very antisocial with a strong personality and little desire to change. My favorite story from the beginning nearly ended with me being seriously injured because of her, we joked that she was trying to kill me and I’m not entirely convinced she wasn’t. She had been hiding in a dark corner beside the stairs and as I approached to go to the dining room for dinner, she reached from the darkness and across my legs, sank her claws into the leg farthest from her and pulled. I nearly fell down the stairs, but thankfully caught myself on the rail. As she aged, she grew gentle and kind, she now greets me with soft meows and rubs against me, sleeping with me when I visit my parents and even cuddling my three year old little sister during naps or quiet time. She took a lot of work and patience, with her long hair and temperament, but honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing in the end. She’s a good cat, not the easiest or the nicest, I’ve ever had, but she’s definitely not the demon she was when we first met.
