The Story Of Mr. Fuzz

Ever had a houseguest that stopped by for the weekend..then decided to stay? That’s kinda what we’re talking about here.

Let’s let Robert R. step in at this point. “This is our Maine Coon, Mr. Fuzz. He is a feral that showed up last year in our neighbourhood as a hungry kitten. We started feeding him during the freezing months of January and February then one bitterly cold night he panicked while hiding on our back porch and ended up running in the house,” Robert says.

“He’s been here ever since.”

“He has grown into a beautiful cat who enjoys his comforts, as you can see.”

“She lost 2 of her siblings a few days after they were found. She was found in a field in the freezing cold. Her mother was a dumped pet.”

“Sadly we have hundreds of pet rabbits and their offspring roaming the streets here in Richmond BC.”

008-2
“Many do not make it, so Noel was very lucky to have someone find her when she was just a week or two old as she most likely would not have survived the winter.”

009-2
“Noel is now very happy here at Bandaids for Bunnies and took part in our Christmas photo shoot with Christopher Orr our amazing photographer!”

“We are doing a Rabvent calender this year on our Facebook page posting pictures of our rabbits daily!”

[Say Like Eva Gabor:] Oh, Ol-Lee-Vah*?

This is Oliver. The O-Man is demonstrating what kittehs do best. Once again, we refer to The Rule Of Cuteness #40. You curl up in a sunbeam for a snooze….it’s cute. And the little Santa hat knocks it over the fence. (Baseball metaphor.)
